Tickets for good seats are still available at a very decent price for the upcoming Avett Brothers concert at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Thurs. Sept. 17. On a huge roll behind a tuneful, critically-acclaimed new album titled I and Love and You, the Concord, N.C.-based roots/Americana (or, as they sometimes call it: “punk-grass”) trio returns to a very loyal Charleston crowd. Local indie pop-rock band Slow Runner is schedule to open the show at 8 p.m.
The Avett Brothers formed in 2001 when banjoist Scott Avett and guitarist Seth Avett joined forces with stand-up bassist Bob Crawford. At the time, the brothers fronted a neo-punk band called Nemo.
I and Love and You is a 13 song collection produced by legendary studio and record label man Rick Rubin, who signed the Scott, Seth, and Bob to his American Recordings label last year.
“As soon as I heard the depth in their singing and songwriting, I was in for the ride,” says Rubin in a recent press release. “The Avetts’ songs have such a sincere emotional resonance. The purity of the messages stops you in your tracks. It’s unusual to hear such open-hearted personal sentiment from young artists today.”
