The Avett Brothers: Newport Folk 2009

When The Avett Brothers performed at the NPR Music offices recently, Scott and Seth Avett sang/shouted with such volume that All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen asked Scott, "Did you swallow an amplifier as a child?"

Without fail, the enthusiastic roots-rock band generated massive volume onstage at Newport, given the addition of microphones. The Avetts brought their emotionally charged and frenetic live show to the Fort Stage at Folk Festival 50 less than two months before the release of I and Love and You, stomping and hollering through a set of old and new songs.

Set List

"Left on Laura, Left on Lisa"

"Paranoia in B Flat Major"

"Murder in the City"

"Kick Drum Heart"

"Denouncing November Blue"

"Distraction #74"

"Ballad of Love and Hate"
