The Black Crowes
Southern rock heroes The Black Crowes brought their classic sound to the picturesque town of Oxford, Mississippi for a special performance at a former silent movie house in the “Little Easy.” Built in 1913, The Lyric Theatre provided a historic setting for the band’s first Artists Den appearance, a rollicking concert featuring both fan favorites and songs from their new album, Before the Frost…
The Black Crowes — a rock band Billboard coined an “Allmans-to-Zappa synthesis of influences” — broke onto the scene with their multiplatinum 1990 debut, Shake Your Moneymaker. The Georgia band has since released seven studio albums, which have racked up worldwide sales exceeding 19 million. The Crowes’s 2008 LP Warpaint includes, according to Rolling Stone, “some of the best range and craft of the band’s career” — not a small feat for a group that’s been on the scene for two full decades.

After an extensive renovation, The Lyric Oxford re-opened its doors in the summer of 2008 on “The Square” in Oxford, Mississippi. The Lyric originally opened as a silent movie theatre in 1913 and played home to a variety of films and events over the years — including the world premiere of native Oxfordian William Faulker’s “Intruder in the Dust” in 1949.
