BLACK CROWES
7:30 p.m., Arkansas Music Pavilion, Fayetteville. $30-$65.

There was a two-year hiatus and then a two-year period of line-up changes and general tumult. Let's call them the Kate Hudson days. With the release of “Warpaint,” the band's seventh album, earlier this year, things have calmed down a bit for the Crowes. Luther Dickinson, son of Jim and member of the North Mississippi All-Stars, officially joined up as a second guitarist. They brought their Southern-fried pyschedelia to Australia, New Zealand and Europe. They launched liveblackcrowes.com, a download site that offers current and archived concerts. They sued Gretchen Wilson for copyright violation. Ho-hum. Maybe playing a show close to Wal-Mart HQ, which refused to carry the pube-bearing album cover of the band's third album, “Amorica,” will inspire some deep-down angst to resurface. Northwest Arkansas, long a dead zone for live shows from big name acts, needs a jolt of wildness. Tickets, available via arkansasmusicpavillion.com, were still available at press time.
