Freak & Roll

Tonight I will be at Times Square's Best Buy Theater for what could be The Black Crowes final tour (at least for a while). In this dude's humble opinion, The Crowes are the finest set of Minstrels, or the best group of touring musicians out there today. These guys are on the road around 75% of the year, spreading their music and paying homage to their influences the world over. This is going to be my 4th time seeing these guys, in my 3rd state (Tennessee, Ohio, and 2 in New York), every time at a different venue. I like to think that tonight's format is inspired by the second show I went to, which was during frontman Chris Robinson's divorce from talentless wannabee Chameleon, Kate Hudson. On that August day in 2008, heartbroken, Chris rallied his brother Rich and the other Crowes to perform an entire Acoustic set of their folksier, more existential tunes, followed by plugged-in, blow you away, Rock Heavy set. From what I'm hearing, tonight's Say Goodbye to the Bad Guys tour should be similar, but as explained before, still unlike any show ever.
