I'm a fan! I've turned them on to quite a few friends who are now fans also. I don't care if they sell out or change their sound every album... they are an amazing live band and I like their new stuff as much as the older stuff. Personally I like bands that grow and change...

No disrespect intended but I think their sound is more open to change than OCMS's... The Avett's were never really a traditional bluegrass band to begin with!

That said I've never heard anything prior to Carolina Jubilee so I suppose I could be wrong?

I never thought of OCMS as "bluegrass", especially traditional. They are way too loose and have entirely too much fun to be bluegrass... Very Happy

Good point! I was generalizing. I meant comparatively The Avett Brothers were far less traditional or bluegrass than OCMS. They are so different sounding I shouldn't have mentioned them in the same sentence. I love both bands and seem to always be waiting for new music from either of them!

i'm gonna try to make the Kodak one. Not sure how much tickets are, but if they are 50 or more, I think I'll just stay at home.

October in and around Knoxville is shaping up to be a good one!

Avett Brothers - Oct. 7
Felice Brothers - Oct. 12
Justin Townes Earle - Oct. 21

now if a OCMS show could be announced it would be damn near perfect!

Laughing I can read that small print, Stu! That's what happens when you drink the Kool-aid.... Very Happy

Ya'll are right, though. I can't believe they are even near big enough to be playing Bridgestone. With SOCIAL DISTORTION! Wow, does that bring back some memories!

The first show I went to without my parents, or at east one of them, present was Social Distortion. Granted I was only 15 (or maybe even 14) and my older sister took me, but it still felt like complete freedom and was significant in developing my musical habits. I would LOVE to see them again... I think I would refrain from entering the mosh pit this time though.

Dylan might have had something to do with it, but I'm placing all the blame on Mumford & Sons.

Just found this thread. Our road trip gang saw the Avett Bro's about a month after seeing OCMS three times in three nights. This is what I posted to my facebook page-

"There are some concepts so basic they shouldn't need to be said. If people lived by this rule Facebook would wither and die.

My turn-Seeing a fave band from the edge of the stage is different than seeing a band you kinda like from 100 yards away. Pass it on."


I really liked the Avett's Bros first couple of albums, but it wasn't until I was surrounded by zombies in the cheap seats that I realized I really don't like their new stuff.

I must admit, I've never listened to the Avetts much (not because of a particular dislike, it's just somehow never happened), but this is beautiful.

One of my favourite McTell songs, and Seth sings it beautifully. And what a sweet sound Hank Sr's guitar makes!

I listened and two things became apparent. Seth is not the Avetts. That was a nice version of the song.
But. He for sure ain't Wilie McTell either.

I'm all for the guy playing dead men's music... I actually commend him highly for it. Just don't do it on Hank's guitar. Therein lies the blasphemy for me.

Since this has been done, I want to see Ketch Secor playing Old Jimmy Sutton or the like on Tommy Jarrell's fiddle at the Smithsonian. I demand this!!!!!!!!!!!!
