CCR in Miami This Week


s much as I loved Credence Clearwater Revival as kid, I never thought I’d be able to hear them perform as an adult. I named my first dog after one of their songs, I danced to their songs at every family gathering we had, and I listened to them during nearly every car ride with my mother, who was a huge fan. I thought they were ancient, though (after all, my mom loved them!), and never thought they’d be playing while I was in my late 20’s.

(Okay, to be perfectly honest, it isn’t the original CCR; it’s Credence Clearwater Revisited, a band formed by a couple of the original members back in the ‘90s. But it’s just as worth seeing! It’s not like it’s a tribute band or anything; you’ve got real original members in there.)
