Concord’s own The Avett Brothers, a band we’ve written about several times in the magazine and once or twice on this blog (caution: links on old blog post aren’t working until we update the archives on our new site), are currently touring the West Coast, and crowds are coming out in droves. I just got this email from Dolph Ramseur, who works with the band:
The Avett Brothers sold-out SLIM’S in San Francisco last night. They had 628 paid! The tour out west is going great. They sold out their show in Chico, CA on August 7th. Los Angeles is on Saturday night and I expect they will sell 500 or more tickets. This will be the first time the band has played in Los Angeles. The buzz is really spreading in California as their show at the Lobero Theatre on October 20th in Santa Barbara, CA is already sold-out! They play Bumbershoot in Seattle, WA on September 1st. Bumbershoot is a huge music festival. The Avett Brothers already are at the stage of pulling out 750 paid in Seattle and this will really step things up. I just wanted to keep everyone posted in North Carolina how the tour was going. Tour dates are below.
