Avett Brothers Add Dates

AVETT BROTHERS TO "BURN UP THE STAGE"
ON THEIR LONGEST U.S. TOUR TO DATE

The Avett Brothers
In the past year, The Avett Brothers have gone from relative unknowns to the poster children of a brand new and rapidly growing genre of American music. And while critics and fans alike have trouble agreeing on just what that genre should be called (indie roots, folk-punk, grungegrass, the list goes on and on), no one seems to have any trouble agreeing on the fact that The Avett Brothers are taking American roots music to brand new and exciting places.

"Startling power... all over the map of acoustic American music, the Avetts are musically loose, a bit florid...and able to burn up the stage." -Los Angeles Times

"Heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." -San Francisco Chronicle

"You could get splinters listening to these guys." -San Diego Union Tribune

"The finest example of indie-roots in action. Known for their wildly creative take on bluegrass, they stray with ease, often finding themselves belting out early-Beatles pop harmonies, or dredging up brief moments of loud rock." -The Portland Mercury

With tour dates extending all the way through the end of the year, be sure to catch The Avett Brothers' raucous live show in a town near you.

Sweet. These guys canceled a week before a show at Summer Hookah at NLQP because they felt they were too good to "open" for ekoostik Hookah. They are a real class act. Although I am impressed at the amount of continuous shows they have on this tour, one must wonder about the classic struggle of quantity and quality.

I don't like these guys. they just yell and holler, beat on the instruments and sling sweat all over the place. the first time i seen them, 3 years ago, they were a totally different band. my girl on the other hand loves their emo-grass and drags my ass to their Nashville shows, as i do to her with so many other bands. give and take ya know?

freetime3,
I doubt these boys walked out of a contract a week before a gig because they were "better" than the headliner all of a sudden. Hookah really has nothing on the avetts, but thats neither here nor there. If you asked them what hookah did they would probably be clueless, and tell you to ask them after the gig. The avetts are very gracious and humble for all of the success they have been getting lately and are always asked to come back to a venue. I've never herd any rockstar stories about these guys. They are pretty chill. They wouldn't cancel a gig because they thought they were better than the headliner. They would treat it like any other gig and do their best. Chances are something got messed up on the money end (NLQP) or their was issues with equipment (vehicular issues) or personal lives (home away from the road). you are right these kids are a real class act.

as for the so many dates in a row thing... they are a 3 piece accoustic act. Not much wear and tear on the body. if a musician isn't playing everyday they shouldn't be playing. These guys just want to share their every day playing with an audience.

Emo.. They played a show in Ohio about 30 miles away the night before NLQP and another show elsewhere 2 days later so I doubt it was their ride. The man who runs the venue is a very kind hearted, stand up guy, and has never had any problems scheduling or paying anyother band. Lotus, New Monsoon, U-melt, Dirty Dozend Brass Band, and others still performed that weekend. Many of which have played shows there before and most likely will return. The fact that they may not know of, or like, Hookah shouldn't matter if they played that weekend, but apparently it did.

I do commend them for attempting such a task. But from their pic on the artical, and other peoples accounts from their shows, it really does look like playing everyday might be a bit rough on the body, and mind.
