The Greek Theatre | Berkeley, California
The relentless tour machines Avett Brothers are will carrying on their journey and arrive at the Greek Theatre Berkeley on Saturday 13th September for a night of incredible multi-genre music: where they seek to combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime. Maybe one of the most diverse bands around, they are supporting their 8th album release, which has received a lot of critical acclaim this year. Joining them for the show is famed singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, Tickets available to order online now.
The Avett Brothers are awesome American band from Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett (banjo) and Seth Avett (guitar), as well as Bob Crawford (double bass) and Joe Kwon (cello). Mike Marsh (drums), Tania Elizabeth (violin) and Paul Defiglia (keyboard) are touring members of the band, with Kwon featured on recordings from 2007's Emotionalism and later.
Following on from Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, the Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having 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."
