Avetts in Portland

Scott and Seth Avett brought their raucous, rocking, folky chaos to the Crystal Ballroom on this past Thursday.

Jessica Lea Mayfield opened. It’ll be nice to see her in a cool little room like the barn at this year’s Pickathon. She has an amazing voice.

Two years ago at Pickathon, the Avett Brothers surprised the audience with their energy. I remember there being about a dozen folks stirring up the dust as they danced and sang along. On Thursday, the spring loaded, floating floor of the Crystal felt like a trampoline as nearly all of the 1500 people at the sell out show bounced and sang along with the brothers.
