have yet to hear any of the new material that's being heavily featured in the setlists (not even the "disco" song they've played on the radio), but am excited to see this version of the band w/ Luther Dickinson. i'm sure the show will be another good one for the hometown fans. i wonder if we'll get any guests. jimmy herring appeared the last two times i've seen them in ATL, maybe someone else?

EAPF Mr. Crowe's Garden - gracious that was a long time ago, eh?

enjoyed the Crowes last Sat at Chastain, couldn't have asked for a better day and night, perfect weather!

really dug Luther's playing, it fit so well. Good Morning Captain had a great Luther-led Allmanesque jam to end it, Luther on fire from the first note - I was already sold from then on. He played great all night. Wiser Time always nice to hear. Gorman was a monster on drums all night. We were sitting a few rows above the pit on the far right side, and could see him great. Sound was fine there surprisingly.

The place was 3/4 full, and eveyone was havin' a good time. The Crowe's started about 8:45 and encore ended at almost 10:35. It was weird & annoying that they left with 25 minutes until curfew, esp in Atlanta?!?! I mean c'mon, one more song?

It really got me thinking about the BC and the last couple of years for them. Last time I saw them was at Lakewood in 06 (w/ DBT & Robert Randolph opening), and they were giving away tix for $1, this time, Chastain doesn't sell out. Are the ffolkes who dig the Crowes just not going these days, esp due to the $60+ ticket fees? Are the ffolkes who want some rock from the south getting their fix with the Drive By Truckers these days? their tix sure are cheaper, and the shows an hour or so longer. And as my wife exclaimed on a couple of occassions Saturday, "Where are the young people? We're all old..."

There may be a day in the not so distant future that we may be able to see BC in a nice intimate venue for a reasonable price, because they just aren't able to do it otherwise. Or they will just go their seperate ways, again..., and re-union all over. either way, i'll enjoy all the live recordings that are available, and all the memories from my first twenty-four years of the brothers robinson crusade. I look forward to hearing more live BC w/ Luther.

World Boogie is Coming!

I was a the show and agree it was a fine night for a concert (full moon ) and at a fine venue. But I was also disappointed at the size of the crowd, the length of it, and the fact that the show was basically nothing special overall; actually I found it a bit mellow. Don't get me wrong though, the band sounded fantastic and certainly delivered a quality performance; there were lots of smiles . But I guess we hometown folks expect more for Atlanta. This was the same story last year too, good show but nothing particualrly special to write home about.

I think it comes down to the fact that the Crowes have moved on from Atlanta and probably don't really feel connected to it anymore. They play a helluva alot of shows every year and seem to play anywhere and everywhere. They'll do 14 songs or so, a couple of encores, deliver the boogie and move on. Based on the size of the crowd at Chastain I do think they will have to think of smaller more intimate venues; I just don't think they're as big as they once were. Their last two albums have been great, a new, more Americana sound of sorts and they're not doing the boogie thing quite so much. I noticed a few fans at Chastain sorely disappointed they weren't hearing the old stuff but to the Crowes credit they're still trying to grow as a band and not be too formulaic. I actually thought when they played the old stuff - especailly Sting Me - they were totally going through the motions. They must be sick of some of that stuff no matter how good the songs are.

Anyway, I reckon I'll be back to see them again next year. And maybe they'll play somewhere that won't charge me so much.

I think whatt it boils down to that finally after 20 years in the business they actually have thr freedom to do and say what the want. They own their label/publishing company now and are finally doing things on their own terms instead of the industry "big wigs."

I dig what they are doing in the studio and on stage these days. And, God bless 'em for having 20 years under their belts and not being a "greatest hits" type of band everytime you go to see them in concert.
