SF CONCERT REVIEW: Chris Robinson Brings His Style of Jam Rock to the Fillmore (PICS+REVIEW)

in Photos/SF Concert Reviews by

stars

 

Bay Area local Chris Robinson was greeted last night to a crowd consisting mostly of family and friends, completing the second of a three night residency at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

The singer most famous for having started the Black Crows in the 80s and 90s founded the Chris Robinson Brotherhood in 2011 and simultaneously decided to move to our very own Marin county from Los Angeles. It’s a dramatic change from the Hollywood lifestyle the lead singer was accustomed to, but one that he doesn’t regret. He was quoted as saying in a recent SF Gate article that: “you can’t put a price on joy.”

“Everywhere you go, everyone’s so nice. I lived in L.A. for 14 years, and I never ran into friends the way I do in Marin — at the DMV, at the beach, at the muffler shop and, of course, at Good Earth (Fairfax’s independent natural foods market and unofficial cultural center),” he said.

During last night’s performance you could feel the singer was at ease and happy to be playing the music that he is most comfortable with to a crowd of people that were there not because of the music videos and hit singles, but because of something bigger. A communion of sorts, with people of similar beliefs, celebrating life, art and most of all brotherhood.
