Agreed. Have loved every show I have seen, and looking forward to another in September!! But I'm a huge Black Crowes fan, and a Neal Casal fan so the combo in the CRB is perfect for me. 

That new Betty's Blend is pretty great if you haven't heard it yet!

That's exactly what hooked me.

Me too!!!  :beer:  They played 2 nights in Cleveland 2 years in a row and I was out of town for both years and then last year when I finally got to see them, they only played one night.  Well, this year they're playing 2 nights again in Cleveland and I'm going to be there with bells on for both nights!!!   :thumbsup:

This is just a crazy story. The day after his 70th birthday, as some incredible musicians got together to honor him, after 4 hours of musical tribute, during the final song "Turn On Your Lovelight", on stage Col. Bruce Hampton collapses and dies.

what a way to go out! RIP

This was the first thing I read when I woke up this morning and felt a mixture of sadness and happiness. Like laughing and crying simultaneously. Too crazy! Love(d) the Col.

Of course they played this earlier in the night...

I don't know if the OP is still looking for something similar to what they described in their OP - but how much have you listened to Tame Impala?  They put out a little live album called "Live Versions" a few years ago that is sort of in the vein of what you mentioned. No ridiculously long jams, but some songs that span to the 7 or 8 minute mark. It's only 9 songs, but I think they have several bootlegs out there as well.
