An Avett Friday night at the Cap
Another weekend where I wish I could just spend it all in Port Chester, but I had to pick one and we decided on Friday night. There really was no wrong choice as all three nights the Avetts spent in town had amazing set lists and incredible performances. I hope the Brothers never stop coming to the Cap, but considering I saw them sell out MSG last year, I know it must be tough for them to play small venues that sell out so easily. Friday night was fantastic with one of the most diverse sets of their own music I've ever seen plus some great covers including Merle's Mama Tried and Dylan's I Shall Be Released. After a brief break to get some chairs on stage, the band came out to do an encore (more like a short set) of some of the old style bluegrass classics that they had used in their Doc Watson set at MerleFest. I can't wait until the next time we get to see the Avett Brother and the best part it's going to be in just a few weeks at the Ommegang Brewery.
