Re: “Review: Avett Bros @ Johnny Mercer Theatre

Sounds like a rant against "frat boys" with a concert review thrown in. I dismiss the audience distraction though (maybe you are better off listening to overproduced studio releases in your controlled home). I wonder if the clapping in between songs bothered you too. I actually thought the crowd was subdued compared to last year. But then the show was more subdued also. The audience added a little more energy than the band was giving out compared to last year. Yes, they made some very deliberate decisions along the way. I would like to think that all bands do that. Or did the Grateful Dead just decide to put Jerry Garcia on guitar when he is really better fitted for keyboards? They probably could have had Top 40 success if Jerry never sang a word also since he is more Seth Avett than Scott Avett. But I digress... The Avett Brothers are an original talent and not a cookie cutter band. Label them how you want if you have a need to label them. You either like the music or you don't. You went to this show looking for a steel guitar and were disappointed when it wasn't there. Maybe your taste is a little more Toby Keith or Hanson Brothers. It's clearly not Avett Brothers, but I'm fine with that. Let them be and don't tinker with their deliberate decisions.
