Black Crowes at the Moscone Center November 18

I saw the Black Crowes at the Moscone Center in San Francisco as a guest of Salesforce at the Dreamforce conference gala. I was really keen on seeing them; often the bands that play at corporate events aren't suited to my musical tastes so it was a treat to be treated to the Crowes.

I was worried however when I first got to the stage; the Crowes seemed to be acting as their own warm up band, and performed lackadaisically at best for the first 3 pieces. They finally hit their stride, though, around song 4 and started really rocking out. Their performances of crowd favorites Jealous Again and She Talks to Angels inspired dancing and sing-backs even among the most staid corporate types. The harmonica/drum duet mid-set was a beaut, and being so close to the guitarists on stage allowed a close following of their techniques and fingering.

Thanks Salesforce for bringing in such a hard-rocking, authentic rock band.
