Counting Crows at Merriweather

Counting Crows played Merriweather Post Pavilion tonight, performing for a packed, screaming crowd in the humid, sticky weather this evening. Didn’t stop them from rocking out like it was their job, or from inviting the crowd to scream like crazed high school groupies. Adam Duritz’s voice has held up amazingly well this tour, and he was in fine form tonight. Their mix of Raining in Baltimore and Rain King (now to be known henceforth as Rain King in Baltimore) was incredible, and Holiday in Spain for the second encore had the whole place blown away.
Merriweather is this incredible gem just outside DC, an amazing venue to take in a concert, a gorgeous groomed lawn, seats down front, plenty of good food, plenty of good scenery. We got a chance to sneak into the HQ and meet some of the people there as well, this place is a real treat, straight down to the staff that work there. Did I mention they allow cameras for certain shows? This is more than I can say for Pier 6 in Baltimore.
This weekend is They Might Be Giants and Fountains of Wayne down at Live on Penn. Tickets are $7 at the door. See you there!
