Can we talk about how much fun these guys are having?
I’ve been playing on YouTube this morning because I just learned a new trick and am very excited.
I didn’t know you could make a “playlist” until yesterday when I randomly stumbled upon an “Avett Brothers Mix,” which happens to be amazing. It’s like Pandora, but with videos.
I’m currently digging this song…a lot.
“If it’s the beaches If it’s the beaches’ sands you want Then you will have them If it’s the mountains’ bending rivers Then you will have them If it’s the wish to run away Then I will grant it Take whatever you think of While I go gas up the truck Pack the old love letters up We will read them when we forget why we left here.”
I was working on my own little mix when I came across the above version of “Frankie’s Gun” by the Felice Brothers. They are joined with the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show, Gillian Welch and Justin Townes Earle during The Big Surprise Tour. (And, yes, that is Ketch Secor of OCMS dancing around in the Hawaiian shirt in the background). We had the delight of seeing the tour when it came to Charlottesville, VA in August of 2009 and baby AJ got a workout in my tummy because I didn’t stop dancing the entire time.
