July 11, 1984 marked the final performance from the four-piece King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp had assembled just a few years earlier under the moniker Discipline. It would be a decade before Fripp would invite guitarist/vocalist Adrian Belew, drummer Bill Bruford and bassist Tony Levin to return to King Crimson (albeit in expanded form).

We’ll hear music from that as well as selections from Seconds Out by Genesis.
