The Avett BrothersApril 18, 2010
Ahhhh. I just got home from an Avett Brothers show, and I'm here to tell you (again) that you should go see them when you can. They put on a show like no one else -- they just get up and play -- no real on-stage banter, just music.
And if you don't know them yet, I have a feeling you will. They're the real deal. So here's a little primer set of videos for your enjoyment.
#1 A whole show! Three acoustic songs in the NPR offices. OH SO GOOD.
#2 This is a little of what it's like to be at a show:
#3 Murder in the City.
I love this song. Oh, oh, oh. (And tonight, when he sang the last verse, he substituted "my daughter" and "her mother" for "sister" and "mother." The awwwws from the women in the crowd curled upward like smoke.
If you buy one album, I'd buy Emotionalism. Enjoy.
