The Avett Brothers live at the Fraze Pavilion

Last night the Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio hosted nationally renowned band The Avett Brothers to what can only be described as a “diverse” crowd of college-aged hipsters, the “obsessed super-fans” and every walk of life in between.

The band kicked off their set with Denouncing November Blue while the crowd sang back up for the entire song. A great start to what was sure to be a magical evening. As they worked their way through their vast catalogue, they paid their respects to the recently departed icon and their mentor, Doc Watson - playing four of his songs and introduceing each one with the line, "We learned this from Doc Watson."

What helped put this show over the top was the release of a limited edition concert poster for Kettering, Ohio in which only 100 were printed and finally when they returned to the stage for their encore, they jumped into an instrumental jam that they titled "Pretty Girl from Kettering, Ohio".

Needless to say, The Avett Brothers have love for Ohio and Ohio definitely loves The Avett Brothers.
