Avett Brothers

When: Fri., Oct. 8, 7 p.m. 2010

Grumbles about the decision of this Concord trio—by far, the state's most popular and, for the better part of a decade, most potent live band—to take their rock 'n' roll acoustic show to the area's biggest venue have been bountiful. Remember, though, that when the Brothers decided to leave their longtime indie home at Ramseur Records and head to Rick Rubin's American Recordings, the same set of so-called supporters "just knew" that the band's music would suffer. They'd water it down, get dull, sell out. Whoops: The band's answer was I and Love and You, a generous, warm expansion of both their sentimentality and energy. Their live shows have grown in measure, perfectly braced these days by dreamy ballads and nostalgia just as much as broken-string chaos. —Grayson Currin
