Black Crowes - closing act on Closing night and a very vocal Spanish crowd.


Like I said last week, it's Summer and it's Festival Season and Europe is awash with festivals of every kind of music. I actually ran across this one by accident, looking for another festival. It was live as it was happening, the closing night of the BBK Festival in Bilbao Spain with headliners The Black Crowes on Saturday night. Literally hours ago.

A great show that's only slightly distracting by an over-zealous announcing team who talk over the intros to most of the songs. But still, The Black Crowes were on fire and I managed to catch the last half hour of their set.

And as a bonus on the broadcast (Live from RNE 3 in Madrid) they added big chunk of the previous nights headliners, Kaiser Chiefs to close out the broadcast.

Two great bands in great form with only minor distractions - but not enough to kill your enjoyment. There's a lot more to come before the summer is out and I hope to get a lot of them posted.

Stay tuned and play loud.

Kaiser Chiefs - no strangers to Billbao.
