Review: The Avett Brothers – I and Love and You

I and Love and You

The Avett Brothers are all about feeling. On Emotionalism, their last proper full length, the Avetts certainly didn’t shy away from feeling; they celebrated it.

High Fiving Hipsters or: San Diego Loves the Avett Brothers

High Fiving Hipsters

The last time I was at the Belly Up I high fived a hipster. The results were fascinating and hilarious; I came out after the show to see my “victim” sitting on a ledge outside being consoled by his girlfriend. “It was a good show though, right baby?” she said with a hopeful and worried […]

Avett Brothers Answer Our Prayers

The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers are obviously readers of Owl&Bear. Just last week I lamented the fact that the band would not be stopping in San Diego on their upcoming tour and, lo, it turns out that the band will be playing at Solana Beach’s Belly Up Tavern on May 10th. We’d like to thank the Avett […]

Avett Brothers Tour East Coast, Make West Coast Sad

The Avett Brothers

Anyone who reads Owl And Bear knows that we sure do love The Avett Brothers. Their beautiful harmonies, mournful acoustic guitars, and intensely relatable lyrics make them one of the most compelling bands making music today.
