The Avett Brothers come to UNC. No, you can't go, State student.



According to a nicely detailed story in the Daily Tar Heel, Concord, N.C.'s The Avett Brothers will play UNC-Chapel Hill's Memorial Hall on Sunday, Nov. 2. The room holds 1,434 people, which, of course, isn't quite sufficient for a band that played for 7,000-plus folks in Cary earlier this year. UNC's solving the problem by paying the band $30,000 anyway and charging $15 for each student seat. Tickets won't be available to the general public. Like, at all. Oh, how things have changed since the band played UNC's student union a few years ago...

But if you like The Avett Brothers and are bummed about missing their set, Gym Class Heroes plays the same room the following night for Homecoming, Part II. Yeah, that was sarcasm. Tickets are $15 for students and $30 for non-students.
