In January we were pretty bummed to hear the news that our good friends for 25 years, the Black Crowes had decided to call it quits. Thankfully we have so many great memories of shows in Portland over the past two decades, from the first one at T-Birds in April 1990 to the last ones at the State Theatre in October 2013, for WBLM’s 40th Anniversary.
