The Avett Brothers. September 16, 2011.
Ntelos Wireless Pavilion. Charlottesville, VA.
The Avett Brothers delivered the knockout punch to a sold out crowd Friday night on the Charlottesville downtown mall. With barely enough room to clap your hands, fans packed into the Ntelos Wireless Pavilion for a second night of highly anticipated music from the high energy band from North Carolina. Digging even deeper into their repertoire, the Avett Brothers played everything you could have wanted to hear. From the knee-slapping melodies of I Killed Sally’s Lover to the crowd engaging I & Love & You sing-along, from the new sounds of Once & Future Carpenter to the always emotional Murder in the City. The Avetts had the crowd at full attention and never let go, and unlike some artists who just come out and perform their songs, The Avett Brothers are a genuine act, every time.
The band never stands still, sliding and dancing around the stage. Whether its coming from the banjo, bass or piano, Joe Kwon’s cello, or their heartfelt vocal harmonies, there was always an undeniable energy throughout the show. From When I Drink to John Prine’s Way Down, from the encore performance of The Ballad Of Love And Hate (video below) to the ever so relevant Blue Ridge Mountain Blues, I think everyone in attendance certainly got their money’s worth Friday night. Having said that, I can’t wait to see them again tomorrow night at HFStival!!
