LIVE! The Black Crowes – Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, CA (12/8/2010)

Chris Robinson plays the harmonica on "Thorn in My Pride"

The Black Crowes’ latest tour made a stop at the Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella this past December. The venue was a little unconventional for the band (Chris Robinson asked the audience at one point “What is this place, a fuckin’ casino?”), but the acoustics were great and there wasn’t a bad seat in the house.

The set lacked material from their two most recent albums (“Warpaint” and “Before the Frost”), but given that this tour might be the band’s last for a while, it’s understandable that they focused on their entire catalogue. Rich Robinson and Luther Dickinson’s playing was fantastic and the show proved to be the best Black Crowes concert I have seen.

Set list: Waiting Guilty, Another Roadside Tragedy, Wiser Time, Oh! Sweet Nuthin’, I Ain’t Hiding, Thorn in My Pride, Girl From a Pawnshop, Hotel Illness, Jealous Again, She Talk to Angels, Hard to Handle, Shake Your Moneymaker (Encore)
