As The Crow Flies Continues Inaugural Tour In Las Vegas [Photo]


first_imgOn Tuesday evening, As The Crow Flies rolled through Las Vegas, making a stop at the Brooklyn Bowl for a highly anticipated performance. As The Crow Flies is a relatively new project from Chris Robinson, formerly of The Black Crowes, which is in the midsts of its inaugural tour that kicked off at The Capitol Theatre on April 17th. The band also features Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and bassist Andy Hess, Chris Robinson Brotherhood drummer Tony Leone and keyboardist Adam MacDougall, as well as young famed guitarist Marcus King.Seemingly, it seems as though As The Crow Flies has been offering up fairly standardized setlists with some deviation across towns. For the band’s Las Vegas set, the group opened with a number of classic Black Crowes tunes, with the opening numbers of “Remedy” and “Sting Me” off the group’s sophomore album, 1992’s The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, followed up by “Twice As Hard”, off The Black Crowes’ 1990 debut, Shake Your Money Maker.While the band pulled from across The Black Crowes’ expansive catalog, As The Crow Flies also found ample opportunity to lay out a few choice covers. Halfway through the performance, the group offered up a standout cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Almost Cut My Hair”, which followed a take on “Wiser Time”, off The Black Crowes’ 1994 Amorica. The band also closed out their set with a pairing of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle” and Joe South’s “Hush”, ahead of their one-song encore offering of Johnny Winter’s “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo”.You can check out photos from As The Crow Flies’ Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas show on May 8th below, courtesy of Paul Citone.Setlist: As The Crow Flies | Brooklyn Bowl | Las Vegas, NV | 5/8/2018Set: Remedy, Sting Me, Twice as Hard, Nonfiction, By Your Side, Sometimes Salvation, High Head Blues, Good Friday, Almost Cut My Hair (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young cover), Wiser Time, She Talks to Angels, Thorn in My Pride, Jealous Again, Hard to Handle (Otis Redding cover), Hush (Joe South cover)Encore: Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo (Johnny Winter cover)Photo: As The Crow Flies | Brooklyn Bowl | Las Vegas, NV | 5/8/2018 | Credit: Paul Citone Photo: Paul Citone Load remaining imageslast_img read more
