Video from the Avett Brothers' Halloween show in Greensboro

Believe it or not, Friday was my very first time seeing the Avett Brothers. After witnessing their high-energy, crowd-slaying performance, I'm pretty sorry I never saw them during their club days at Kings. Oh well, better late than never.

The crowd really got into Halloween, but no one had better costumes than the Avetts themselves who came out in military uniforms. Seth was Army, Scott Navy, Bob Air Force and Joe Marines.

I had fairly good seats, but the hall was so big, that it didn't really translate into good video. The sound on these videos is very low and echoey. For completists only.

Seth announced this as a new song. Maybe someone out there knows more about it.

I saw the Greensboro show, and it was a first for me aswell! From the angle of your video, I was probably sitting near you too. (did you see a Minnie Mouse? hehe) :) I just got home from the show at UNC. The Greensboro show was definitely higher energy and more fun though. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

I DO remember Minnie Mouse! I also remember the guy in the CCCP T-shirt who was going crazy right behind me, and eventually ran onto the stage!

I was there too (though pretty far back)! You should try to catch them one summer at an outdoor show, I think its even better!
