Stick Men: The Legendary Rhythm Section of King Crimson at New Hazlett Tonight!

Stick Men is three of the five members from King Crimson, who will be playing live at the New Hazlett Theater tonight at 8pm!

Who is King Crimson and why are these guys called Stick Men? Well, depending on when you were born, you may have never heard of them but they are arguably some of the best musicians currently alive. Briefly, King Crimson formed in England in 1969, and was one of the first bands to blend jazz, classical, heavy rock and electronica into their own unique sound. Two of the members began playing the Chapman stick, which is like an 8-string guitar without a body. These guys are masters of this rare instrument.

Checkout this great video of them live in Gothenburg, Sweden. And go see them live tonight in Pittsburgh!
