Chris Robinson Brotherhood Playing Kelly’s, Nags Head This Weekend!
Former Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson is coming to the Outer Banks with his band The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, live in concert this weekend at Kelly’s Restaurant and Tavern in Nags Head.
According to the band’s official website: The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is touring in support of their latest release, Phosphorescent Harvest. Praised by Rolling Stone as “once quirky, trippy, soulful and downright magnetic,” it’s the band’s third full-length for Silver Arrow Records. Robinson declares: “We’ve created a piece of rock ‘n’ roll here. People can look to us and rest assured the genre is alive and well.
The CRB (as they are affectionately known by fans) made an immediate impact upon their boldly unconventional debut in early 2011. They embarked on close to 50 shows over nine weeks in California before ever leaving the Golden State.
In fact, they’d wait until 2012 to truly introduce themselves nationally with the release of two sprawling studio albums: Big Moon Ritual (June 2012) and The Magic Door (September 2012), which showcase a freewheeling improvisational chemistry. The band: Robinson (vox / guitar), Neal Casal (guitar / vox), Adam Macdougall (keys), Tony Leone (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass) — would further develop their identity as a self-defined “farm to table psychedelic rock band” over a 118-show stretch.
Late 2013 saw the fruits of this labor forever captured by legendary tape priestess, Betty Cantor-Jackson (Grateful Dead), on the eight-sided limited-edition vinyl release Betty’s S.F. Blends Volume 1, which documented a glorious five night run the previous December at San Francisco’s famed Great American Music Hall.
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood will be live in concert this Sunday, September 13, at Kelly’s in Nags Head.
Showtime is around 8pm.
Tickets are $20, available for advance online purchase here.
