Happiness is...everything Avett!

I spent a few glorious hours basking in the sounds of the Avett Brothers tonight. What a fabulous way to spend an evening!  Ah~Maz~Ing!*

Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • floor seats
  • bass that rattles your rib cage
  • a banjo that tingles you to your bones
  • harmonies and blends that are so close and sweet they can only be achieved by people who are related to each other
  • people watching (the old couple that clapped wildly but never on beat, the guy near the stage who jumped up and down and writhed orgasmic-ly the entire!)
  • words and tunes that seep into your soul
  • voices that are at once raw, gritty, smooth and sultry
  • a little bit of crazy dancing
  • a touch of gospel, bluegrass, country, folk and rock
  • not to mention the harmonica, the cello, the various guitars, the drums and the whistling
  • 2 solid hours of musical bliss

And for your listening pleasure...
You're welcome!  Hope your dreams tonight are as sweet as mine are going to be.  'Night all!

*Miss K, you were greatly missed


  1. wahoo! It was a boot-stomping, bone-chilling night!

  2. I'm glad you had a great time! Hands down, one of my favorite live bands. Now that we have each seem them, next time we should see them together so we can be the obnoxiously gleefully people upfront waving our hands around in the air like we just don't care!
