The Avett Brothers Play Barclays Center Tomorrow NightMarch 6th, 2014
Brothers Seth (vocals and guitar) and Scott (vocals, banjo and drums) Avett, and Bob Crawford (bass, violin and vocals) and Joe Kwon (cello, saw and vocals) are known for rowdy, authentic Americana roots, energetic alt-country music, and a healthy dose of bluegrass and folk music. Their eighth studio album, last year’s Magpie and the Dandelion (stream it below), produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, “is chock full of tracks that show the Avett Brothers are (very wisely) growing their sound, while remaining true to their core principles and what listeners like about them to begin with,” said American Songwriter. “It’s clear with this latest effort that the Avett Brothers don’t care much for recent trends and don’t chase after something they think their fans want them to be, but instead is a pure taste of raw musical expression, and the resulting effort is that each track is better than the next.” They hail from North Carolina, but the Avett Brothers (above, performing “Laundry Room” for Live on Letterman ) are coming to Brooklyn to rock Barclays Center tomorrow night. As an added bonus, the like-minded Old Crow Medicine Show kick off the night.
