Blackberry Smoke – First Avenue – Minneapolis MN – November 5th 2016

First Avenue presents Blackberry Smoke.

Last time I saw Blackberry Smoke they opened for Kid Rock at the Great Minnesota get together, AKA The Minnesota State Fair.

Was excited to see our favorite indie country southern rock blues band headline First Avenue.

An opening slot you only get 30-45 minutes, gonna be a nice long one tonight.

Their show is just a straight forward rock n roll show.

We have guitars, drums, bass and piano. They come out to rock n roll and they do.

Too bad the kids are not doing more of this. We need more bands like Blackberry Smoke.

The band was really tight tonight and the place was packed.

To described the band I would say it is like making a burrito with Aerosmith – The Black Crowes – 38 Special and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

They are on tour supporting their latest album Like An Arrow, released on October 14th 2016

Check them out if you have not had the pleasure. They are awesome.
