Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Hit or Miss

When: Fri., Nov. 11 2011

The Pour House has welcomed its share of musical legends, but this week, they’ll host a bona fide rock star. Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson wears silky psychedelic shirts, sings through a mop of hair, and stands on his feet bare. Although the Chris Robinson Brotherhood won’t ever draw the kind of crowds the Black Crowes do, Robinson can certainly pack out a club based on his swagger alone. Comprised of keyboardist Adam MacDougall (also of the Black Crowes), drummer George Sluppick, bassist Mark Dutton, and guitarist Neal Casal (of Ryan Adams and the Cardinals), the Brotherhood draws from the roots of classic jam-rock, sprinkling setlists with Grateful Dead covers, the occasional Crowes song, and new originals (several from Robinson’s project New Earth Mud). The band first hit the scene with a 33-city tour last spring, entirely within the state of California. Their chops honed on the Left Coast, they’re now venturing our way. Charleston is the only two-night stand on their East Coast tour.
