The Avett Brothers packed the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion last night with very little airplay, a following that has taken most of the past decade to build and a style marked by acoustic instrumentation and sentimental songs with not a hint of irony.

Dead on with Jessica Lea Mayfield. She was horrible.

This was my seventh Avett Brothers show; my first being down in Nelsonville in 2008. They really know how to put on a great concert. Jessica Lea Mayfield was definitely out of her element...this would have been a great show for Langhorne Slim to open for them. Regardless, I hope radio stationds *cough* cd101 start playing some more stuff by the Brothers.

your comments about the Avett Brothers were dead on...thoroughly enjoyed the show! However, you must have copied comments about the opening band from another show as Nicole Atkins and her band The Sea provided a nice sound that seemed to get the crowd warmed up! Also, they are from New Jersey and the drummer is from Brooklyn "and owns a pizza shop" as Nicole pointed out on numerous occasions.

hmmm...Curt, looking again at your review, which is from 2010. Sadly, I wasn't at that show but am now surprised that no one was at the show last night at the LC? Probably the same reason the Avett Brothers concert was left out of Thursday's weekender and your on-line list of "musical-related things to do" over this long holiday weekend. Columbus Dispatch missed the boat again. I guess you were all too busy at Hookaville (yawn) to get in tune with the sold out show at the LC!
