Smart bets: Rich Robinson


As rock band The Black Crowes broke up, regrouped, went on hiatus and then back on tour, guitarist Rich Robinson — who co-founded that outfit with his brother Chris and drummer Steve Gorman — has consistently continued to make and play music. His side projects included Circle Sound with Luther Dickinson, an album with his own son playing drums and work with Patti Smith. This summer, Robinson released his third solo record, The Ceaseless Sight. Rolling Stone (which streamed the album before its release) described it as, “so rich in textures and assured in the writing that it sounds like a true debut.” The Rich Robinson Band performs at the Asheville Music Hall on Sunday, Aug. 10, at 9 p.m. Prophet Omega and Hollis Brown also play. $15/$20.
