The Avett Brothers Kicked Off Three Days of Concerts in St. Louis Last Night

On the band’s first concert night during a three-day stretch, The Avett Brothers created an all-out party of a show last night at the Peabody Opera House.

Led by the two high-energy brothers themselves (Seth and Scott Avett), the band kicked off the evening with a number of tunes from recent albums like 2012’s “The Carpenter” and the most recent full-length album “Magpie and the Dandelion.” Scott rocked out on his banjo, dancing around the stage and leading his strong vocals to powerful tunes like “Live and Die” as well as emotional songs like “Skin and Bones.” Seth represented the band’s signature sound perfectly while keeping the folk edge and blending it with pop-like harmonies and even vintage-rock flair.

Between the brothers and talented, soulful cellist player Joseph Kwon, bassist powerhouse Bob Crawford, and an overall awesome musical team, last night’s show welcomed the group to St. Louis with style and, as Seth put it, “we’re making this our temporary home for a few days.” If you missed The Avett Brothers last night, you can still catch shows tonight or Saturday evening.
