Great to see M. Rich Robinson from The Black Crowes fame playing such a small (free) showcase in a record store in Paris. The little store is packed with die-hard fans , Rich is here with some members of his band but he will play on his own on acoustic guitar and singing without any PA, so you could hear a pin drop during the gig. 3 songs from the new album and a couple of gems. Great gig.
Rich is very nice and chatty, explaining how sorry he is that his booking agent booked the band to play in a private club ( @ David Lynch's Silencio Club) that is only open to private members. So he's offering a few tickets with a raffle and the people winning ( 6 in all) will be on his personal guest list.
How nice of him.
Then everyone could get his cd signed and buy some stuff, that's when we left  as we had another show to attend.
But hey ! we had to go to the Silencio Club...
