Chris Robinson Brotherhood at Neighborhood Theatre tonight (11/2/2012)

Don’t let the name fool you. This isn’t New Earth Mud or the Black Crowes. With the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, the singer has found new life in a hippy psychedelic band that conjures the Grateful Dead-spawned jam scene. The swirly sonic backdrop is also splashed with blues rhythms and organ riffs inspired by the '70s Tulsa, Oklahoma, sound of Leon Russell and J.J. Cale. The Brotherhood’s rolling and rollicking good vibes find plenty of room to breathe — many of the band’s songs clock in at longer than seven minutes. The band released its first album, Big Moon Ritual, in June and quickly followed it up with The Magic Door in September. Not one to slow down, Robinson has hinted that the band could return to the studio in January. With plenty of covers — usually the Dead or Dylan — thrown into the band’s long, two-set performances, you might as well sit back and enjoy the journey. $20-$30. Nov. 2, 8:30 p.m. Neighborhood Theatre, 511 E. 36th St. 704-358-9298.
