New Years With My Boos

Another New Years Eve, another Avett Brothers concert.  Now that’s the way to ring in 2016.  I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve seen them in concert + each show is more amazing than the last.

After all the food + alcohol that was consumed this holiday, we decided to tailgate in style at the Greensboro Coliseum… with a more healthy spread + some champs.  Because what’s New Years Eve without champs?!

Thoughts I had at the show…

  • Scott Avett can play just about any instrument, including a kazoo.  When they opened the show, he was playing the kazoo while jamming on the banjo. Be still my heart.  The person who caught the kazoo is one lucky SOB.
  • I ADORE their ever-changing looks.  Last year’s NYE show, Scott Avett was clean cut + Seth Avett was the one with long hair + beard.  This year it was Seth who was the clean cut one and Scott had the long beard.  Both can do no wrong.
  • The woman behind us had a constant resting bitch face throughout the entire show.  I couldn’t tell if she was constipated or if that was just her normal demeanor.
  • Joe Kwon had major hat game, bravo!
  • In other Joe Kwon news, I love watching him jam out while he plays on the cello… that’s passion y’all.
  • Of course I have to give some love to Bob Crawford… he’s the master of the upright base.  And I’m not going to lie, I love his casual slightly hipster style.
    • Speaking of style, Scott can totally pull off suspenders.
  • Father Time aka Valient was fantastic. Not only did he ring in 2016, but the man can sing. He sang Time is On My Side + Don’t Do Me Like That with the Avetts as they did the big balloon drop. Major props!
  • They performed Divorce Separation Blues, a new song for their upcoming album. And duh, it was amazing! I know some of my friends will appreciate it + can relate to the song.
