LIVE: King Crimson @ The Egg, 9/9&10/14

Take your own stab at spelling it out, but the opening strains of "21st Century Schizoid Man" sent yet another thrilling shiver through The Egg last Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Another?

EntertainmentSteve Poltz to tour with Mike & Mechanics

Being a gifted troubadour who is also a very funny guy is paying off in an unexpected way for Steve Poltz , the veteran San Diego solo artist, leader of local favorites The Rugburns and early mentor to Jewel in the mid 1990s.
