Music Day 2: The Avett Brothers
Dressed casually, not in their trademark suits, the Avetts delivered a far more relaxed and playful set than their NPR Showcase set the night before. Today, they went deeper into their catalog for songs that emphasized their ragged harmonies (such as the back-and-forth banter of "Distraction #74). Like the previous night, they also played two new (but different) songs. Given the chance to be more rambunctious, the Avett Brothers delivered a highly satisfying set.
