Chestertown, MD, July 25, 2001 — Counting Crows, whose 1993 album August and Everything After redefined roots-rock for a new generation, will perform Saturday, October 13, 2001, at 8:00 p.m. in Washington College's Johnson Lifetime Fitness Center. Doors open at 7 p.m.
All tickets for this performance are sold out as of September 25, 2001.
Born in the music scene of the San Francisco Bay Area, Counting Crows was formed in 1990 by singer and lyricist Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson, taking their group's name from an old English divination rhyme. By 1991, the duo grew to include Matt Malley (bass), Charles Gillingham (keyboards) and Steve Bowman (drums). With an undeniable chemistry, the band started performing at San Francisco clubs and by April 1992 signed with DGC Records. Through the fall of 1992 and winter of 1993, Counting Crows recorded their debut album, August and Everything After, at a rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills.
Produced by T-Bone Burnett, August and Everything After was hailed by Rolling Stone as "one of the best rock releases of the year" and remained on the Billboard 200 chart for 93 weeks, topping at No. 4.
In 1994, Counting Crows joined The Rolling Stones' Voodoo Lounge Tour as special guests and won the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist in a Video for "Mr. Jones." The band's second album, Recovering the Satellites, was released in 1996, debuting on the Billboard 200 at #1 and eventually reaching double platinum sales. In 1998 the band's first live album, Across a Wire-Live in New York, was released, and Counting Crows began writing and recording their third studio, This Desert Life, released in November 1999. In January 2000, the band released the first of a series of official bootlegs titled By the Time We Got to Woodstock, followed up by Faced the Promised Land in May 2000.
