Buses bring free concert– but no Crow
We saw these buses parked downtown in anticipation of tonight's free Robert Randolph concert, but- alas- Sheryl Crow skips Charlottesville on the bio-diesel fueled Stop Global Warming College Tour.
Environmentalist Laurie David (and wife of Seinfeld creator Larry David) founded "Stop Global Warming" and will introduce Robert Randolph– and try to get college students to switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs.
Crow, who headlines the southeastern tour, was reported by no fewer than three television stations- including NBC29, WCAV, and Roanoke's WDBJ- as coming to Charlottesville, but we checked with the promoters, and it turns out that she had long planned to skip this stop and join up with the tour at George Washington University April 22 in time for Earth Day.
But don't you skip, since Robert Randolph and the Family Band, whose charismatic frontman was interviewed by the Hook for a cover story last year, plays tonight at 7pm at the Pavilion for free.
