over the weekend i had the pleasure, for the 7th time... i think it's 7th... i've lost count... of seeing one of my all time favorite bands, the avett brothers. i was able to con my tall friend G, who had never seen their musical genius live before, to join me and what a time it was! while tailgating we had some seriously crazy weather move through which brought some rain, but we quickly headed in and grabbed our
seats almost front row standing area in the pit!
grace potter and the nocturnals opened the night and dang that girl can SING! with her tina turner esque dancing she worked her little way out on stage, hit one of the highest first notes i've heard, and proceeded with a rockin' opening set!
then for the avetts. welcome home boys, welcome home. last time i saw them at home was in 2009 in that very spot and this show was just as good, if not better. these guys have a musical gift. they put all of their heart and soul into their music, pen beautiful lyrics that are so real to life, and it's a beautiful, beautiful thing. i found this link today which is the ENTIRE playlist in video format of all 24 songs they played.
