The Avetts Have It

This Sunday evening THE AVETT BROTHERS are performing live on a tour stop at Ft. Lauderdale’s lovely Parker Playhouse!  Why should you go?  Well…

Since 2000 they’ve been mixing up alt-country, bluegrass, punk, indie rock, and even ragtime, with new genres like “indie roots”, “folk-punk”, or “grungegrass” being invented to describe them.  The SF Chronicle said they’ve got the “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.” No small words there.

Or just imagine if the Kings of Leon were chilling in the Carolinas getting back to their roots instead of hitting on underage girls in Manhattan dance clubs.  Or if The Decemberists were from Appalachia…

Or just listen for yourself on their myspace page (which has over 5 million plays!) and watch some of their videos.

It should be a great show as their usual lineup of guitar, banjo and stand-up bass is joined on tour by a cello! (I’ve got a thing for strings.)  You can score tickets by clicking right here.

See you there!
