Avett

“Much like Ryan Adams before the speedballs dulled his fangs, The Avett Brothers are experts in mining the heart and soul of the modern American man. Love is an obvious theme, but so is finding freedom and maturity. Their lyrics are tough yet vulnerable, insightful yet homespun, manly yet emotional. The kind of thing that makes the girls giddy and the boys envious.” —Paste Magazine

The Avett Brothers’ show on October 21st may soon go the way of Ingrid Michaelson’s and Wilco’s—that is to say SOLD OUT!  Tickets are still available but going fast.  Buy yours now, before it’s too late.
