Live: The Avett Brothers at Sunset Cove Amphitheater
The Avett Brothers
Sunset Cove Amphitheater
Friday, February 10
Better than: Having a priest forgive all your sins.
Under Orion's Belt, a beautiful, chilled wind caressed the faces of the crowd as they shouted back to the Avett Brothers. They rejoiced, as if hearing a sermon that cleansed their souls. Friday night at Sunset Cove Amphitheater, when the brothers sang "Blame, please lift it off" from their song "Shame," a zealous girl cried out, "Please!"
Personal bias: I heard them live at Orlando Calling before I even knew they existed. They won me over within three songs.
Random detail: Scott Avett's falsetto sounds like a beautiful bird singing. How appropriate.
The crowd: Well, they weren't stoned. Security was seriously patrolling.
Overheard in the crowd: About the lyric: "Lucifer below, God above," a man pointed out, "That's a great line!"
Geography: North Carolina might be the heart of America, because that's where the Avett Brothers are from. They shook as many hands as they could at the end of the show.
