Avett Bros – Spring Tour + SxSW with the Decemberists


It’s almost Spring and we are gearing up to hit the road again! We’ve got a whole bunch of new tour dates posted and some more exciting news to share.

First, on March 18th, we will head down to Austin, TX to play at South by Southwest for the first time. We have been invited to play at NPR’s official SxSW showcase @ Stubb’s Bar-B-Q. NPR will kick off the festival with a special showcase which will also feature The Decemberists and Heartless Bastards. The show will be streamed live, archived and podcast at NPR.org/sxsw, and will be available for broadcast on NPR Member stations across the country. The concert will be anchored by Bob Boilen, host and creator of the show All Songs Considered and its Live in Concert series.

After that, we will head home and rest up for our big Spring tour! Along with the Dave Matthews’ opening dates already announced, we will also be heading out on our own to make stops at Sasquatch Music Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as well as a few places in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, California, Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania and more.

We could really use your help spreading the word for all of our shows, so if you live in or around any of the places we are playing and would be willing to put up posters, please send us your mailing address (city name in the subject line) at [email protected] . Your help, as always, would mean the world to us.

Last, but not least, our 2002 album Country Was is now available for download on iTunes. We hope you’ll enjoy it.

Thank you all for the support and kindness. We’ll see you very very soon!
