Last Saturday Night (March 8, 2014), Boston's TD Garden welcomed The Avett Brothers and openers Old Crow Medicine Show. It was a full of boot-stomping, hand-clapping and all kinds of dancing.

OCMS began the night with a set chock-full of their high-energy bluegrass and old-timey vibes, bringing out crowd favorite "Wagon Wheel" alongside some of their most fun tracks (including the incredible "Humdinger"), traditional classics and a finale made up of a cover of Tom Petty's "American Girl". They're a fun live band and it was great to see them bring their turned-up-to-10 show to the Garden.

Then it was time for The Avett Brothers. Going into their shows, it's always a guessing game as to where they'll bring the setlist. Saturday was a spectacular mix of old ("Gimmeakiss") and new ("Skin and Bones"), country ("I Killed Sally's Lover") and rock ("Paul Newman vs. The Demons"), fast ("Kick Drum Heart") and slow ("Murder in the City"), all topped off with unbelievable covers of Jim Croce ("Operator"), John Denver ("Thank God I'm a Country Boy") and more, proving that these brothers are undeniably capable of anything. Even taking on a venue as big as the Garden.

Please, head over to my slideshow to revisit some of this incredible show.
