Saturday Night: Chris Cornell At The House Of Blues

Chris Cornell Warehouse Live April 2, 2011

Check out our slideshow of Chris Cornell performing solo at House of Blues.

We can only assume that this current cross-country solo acoustic jaunt by Chris Cornell is a warm-up for a full assault by his recently reunited Soundgarden in the coming months. Or so we dearly hope.

Either way, for two hours on Saturday at the House Of Blues, Cornell took us all up into his attic of musical memories, playing songs from every stop along the way of his career so far, including a few left-field covers, while acting as an all too gracious host, considering the talking inside HOB.

(At this point complaining about Houstonians talking at concerts is like dancing about architecture, writing about music, or washing your car in Houston.)
