Wednesday To-Do: The Black Crowes Canceled

THE BLACK CROWES
7:30 p.m. Arkansas Music Pavilion Walton Arts Center. $32-$77.

UPDATE: This concert has been moved to the decidedly more indoors Walton Arts Center.

UPDATE II:The Walton Arts Center just announced that this show has been canceled because of "a family emergency in the band’s home town of Atlanta." Dang. The press release further states that "although best efforts have been explored to reschedule, based on the band’s current schedule, there are no dates available at this time. Therefore, this is a cancellation as opposed to a postponement. All tickets will be refunded in full. Box office representatives will be calling ticket holders to issue refunds in the next 36 hours."

Is there a shaggier, stoned-er, more hippie-fied, genre-defying, consistently great, loveable, frayed-but-not-torn bunch of rock 'n' roll survivors than The Black Crowes? I think not.

Seriously, what other band can come close to The Crowes' streak of fantastic albums over the course of the last nearly 25 years? They started out as a bell-bottomed, Stones-'n'-Faces-loving blues-rock swagger machine and evolved over the years into an all-encompassing amalgam of rock, soul, blues, folk, country and R&B, all wrapped up comfortably in a wooly jam-band vibe that fits like a perfectly broken-in denim jacket.

Sure, they took a couple of hiatuses here and there, being that brothers will sometimes get to feuding with one another. But they always seem to work it out and answer the call of the road, and of their devoted fanbase. You know this is gonna be a great show.
