The Black Crowes
24th March 2013
Relatively new venue, this is the largest of the three Manchester Academies. Largely speaking, its a fairly characterless brick building, and inside, the main (downstairs) concert hall is a windowless, concrete rectangle, roughly 75 feet wide, 120 feet long, 18 feet high with the stage at one end. That said, the helpful staff can get people in quickly, and out even quicker, via cargo doors on one wall which open up onto Oxford Street at the end of the gig.
One level, all standing, barring a small, raised viewing gantry at the back of the room (largely) for disabled or less able attendees.
Utilitarian, but it does a job.
Capacity 2,300, pretty much sold out.
No support act.

Soundwise 7.0 to 7.5 out of 10.0
Not the easiest of captures; very loud (causing slight clipping in one or two places), amidst an all standing audience, hence some movement in sound and a bit of chatter.
Do what you will with it - except sell it :
You got it for nowt, you give it for nowt
Honest and entertaining, all fans of blues/southern/country rock should have something (official) by the Black Crowes in their collection.
