Chris Robinson Brotherhood Setlist
The CRB hit the scene in 2011 and played nearly 50 shows in the state of California before officially releasing any music. The hype was real and there was a demand for what the band was putting out there so they gave into the fans and released two full length albums just months apart from each other (Big Moon Ritual, and The Magic Door). After releasing those two albums, receiving praise from critics, and love from the fans, The CRB hit the road and finally brought their signature acid- Americana sound to the rest of the world.
Tuesday night's show was part of a nearly four-month long tour in support of their newest album Any Way You Love, We Know How You Feel (Silver Arrow Records) but they seemed to play a bit of everything at the show.
The older crowd was quiet and patient as the show started a half hour late but as soon as the band took the stage, the respectful hooting and hollering started. There wasn't a still head in the room as the audience bobbed their heads to the beat of the bluesy-Americana music.
Although the music wasn't super-fast paced, it was energetic and it was hard to get bored while watching the members play through constructed songs and, what seemed to be, impromptu jam sessions throughout the set. The lengthy songs seemed to blend together as the musicians trucked through the two sets with minimal breaks. Although it was hard to tell when one song ended and one began, the crowd clapped every time there was a break and seemed to be super appreciate of this band making a stop at The Varsity Theater.
Not only did The Chris Robinson Brotherhood offer up their music Tuesday night, "The Brotherhood Steam Beer" which was created in conjunction with Anchor Brewing, was being sold at the bar. This tasty beer seemed to be a favorite in the crowd and people were buying it by the case in order to take the taste of the night home with them.
