Chris Robinson Brotherhood

Fri., July 20, 9 p.m.

Singer-guitarist Chris Robinson’s tenure with the Black Crowes is well documented, particularly his anxiety with the limiting expectations placed on him and that band. The Crowes’ final tour in 2013 revealed even more clearly to Robinson how dysfunctional the band had become. With a real rock ‘n’ roll legacy enveloping the band across more than 20 years, he found himself trapped in the confines of the same old material and caught up in long-standing financial disputes among bandmates and the label. Not conducive to creative growth. Lumped somewhat into the national jam band scene, the CRB certainly does tend toward the improvisational side of music. Expect to hear the band stretch out when it plays tonight as part of a tour to support last year's Barefoot in the Head. (Eric Sandy) $26 ADV, $31 DOS

Fleet Foxes/Nilüfer Yanya

Mon., July 23, 7 p.m.

With Crack-Up, the Fleet Foxes took their sweet ass time. The Seattle folk rock act waited nearly seven years to release the 2017 album, only their third, thanks to a three-year hiatus. Here, frontman/songwriter Robin Pecknold returns with a contemplative work completely recognizable to old fans, full of ethereal harmonies and lush instrumentation, yet heavy on experimentation and palpable maturity. The band is back on the road this summer, proving that indie-folk wasn’t just a fad, including a stop in Cleveland tonight. (Laura Morrison) $42.50 ADV, $50 DOS
