Born from the Southern rock ashes of seminal outfit The Black Crowes, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood expands upon the legacy in a live show brimming with swampy blues, psychedelic boogie, and old-fashioned fervid rock ‘n’ roll. Led by the enigmatic Chris Robinson, a singer who commands the stage like a magician commands a class of second-grade students, the Brotherhood builds and burns barns of sound with rustic jams, pinching lyricism, and melodies suitable for jumping motorcycles over chicken-fried draft-card depositories. The deck comes stacked with new Brotherhood songs, declarative covers, and a slew of Black Crowes’ moneymaker shakers, such as “Hard to Handle” and “She Talks to Angels.”
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
