Low volume was not a problem at the Avett Brothers show at the Boulder Theater Saturday night. Oh no, not at all. The Avett Brothers were making a ton of sound for three guys and 16 strings, give or take a couple dozen broken ones.
See, I won these tickets to go to the show. And I was going to give them away because the Avett Brothers are bluegrass and I’m not so into that. Plus, we have a couple of their CDs and, from my point of view, they’re just okay. Pleasant, for sure, but nothing I was really excited about. But I ended up going to see them anyway, and while I’m not sure what I heard Saturday night, it definitely wasn’t straight-up bluegrass.
