IF YOU DON'T KNOW THIS BAND AND THEIR MUSIC YOU'RE REALLY MISSING OUT.
I've seen this band a number of times and have never been disappointed. Bands like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers have gotten inspiration from their music. They are a hard working band and very prolific. Their lyrics are about family, friends, love, heartbreak and forgiveness. Their music has such range and diversity from rock, in songs Vanity, Geraldine, Pretty girl from Chile, to knee slapping Laundry room and Sally's Lover, and tender love on "I wish I was", they are awesome. As an Avett primer watch "May it Last" on HBO directed by Judd Apatow. Scott and Seth Avett founded the band & added big bad Bob Crawford on standup bass and wild & free cellist Joe Kwon to make for a tight band with plenty to say and play. Any chance you can go see them , do not miss them in concert!

AVETT BROTHERS, OAK MOUNTAIN AND RAINY . . . PERFECT!
First off, Trish is right in that everyone should see the HBO documentary 'May it Last' to get some insight on these guys. Second, the band's skillset and musicality compete with AK & Union Station, Mumford & Sons, Springsteen and DMB, but AB has them all beat when it comes to heart. Third, these guys act like they a) really like each other and b) know that they are there for their audience. No matter how much beer that audience drinks and no matter how much that drunk audience believes how well they sing the songs. Yeesh! You just have to take a look at the setlist to see that every album was represented and how much guts it took for them to sing 'We Americans' in the environment we find ourselves in these days. Let's throw in Oak Mountain as a great venue that is acoustically superior, very comfortable and about the best location if you are interested in walking back over the footbridge to lodging (and parking), restaurants (and parking) and oh yes, parking. I will be back!
