The Avett Brothers at the Pavilion

The Avett Brothers at the Pavilion

I arrived at the breezy Bank of America Pavilion this past Sunday evening with nothing but expectation– ten years behind the rest of the world, I was relatively new to the work of the Avett Brothers and the enormous gathering they’d picked up from fans of all genres and wasn’t sure what sort of audience […]

It’s a crazy world out there and sometimes all we need is a little bit of group therapy to keep us all together.

Bon Iver at the Pavilion

Bon Iver at the Pavilion
