Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) is an amazing three-piece band from San Francisco. Founded in 1998, the band has amassed a nice catalogue of music consisting of eight albums and two EPs. Touring personnel have been consistent since 2008, when Leah Shapiro became the band’s latest drummer. The band’s founders, Robert Levon Beenset at the House of Blues New Orleans consisted of nine of the 12 tracks on the disc, but in the grand scheme of a 23-song set, really made sense. Their self-titled debut got the second most love of the evening, and their rock anthem from it served as the final song of the encore.
The show, as a whole, was flawless. Levon Been interacted with the audience, but never took them out of the experience of the evening. The “smoke break” song that he opted to play was a fiery acoustic version of Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock.” That was pretty much the only time the band slowed down. In the end, BRMC came off as a well-oiled machine. You can see more photos HERE.
