i am seriously excited for this weekend. tomorrow is the start of a 3 day run of seeing the black crowes in concert. i cannot wait. my husband, brett introduced me to the black crowes back in 2006 when we first started dating and i got into their music pretty much immediately. i love it. i had seen them in concert before, opening up for tom petty, but never really paid much attention to them. but once brett reintroduced me to them, i was hooked. we've seen them in concert about 7 or 8 times so far and they are seriously awesome live.
not many of our friends are into the black crowes. when we go to their shows, it's usually a somewhat older crowd (people in the 30s +) but we don't care. they've been around since the early 90s, so that explains it. and they've pretty much been touring non-stop since they started out, so this tour coming up this week is going to be their last... at least for a while. the shows are going to be extra awesome though because they are playing 2 set shows: 1 acoustic set and 1 electric set. they aren't having any opening acts, it will just be the, playing straight for at least 3 hours. um, seriously awesome. we almost didn't get tickets to the dc shows because they sold out, but luckily my husband found some online for face value. score.
so that's where i'll be for the next 3 nights... i'll be sure to recap after the weekend is over!
