The Avett Brothers, up close and personal
So two months ago I got really lucky - one of my colleagues at UNC asked me to help him film and photograph a benefit concert. And the special guests were none other than two of the Avett Brothers (Scott Avett and Joe Kwon). The Avett Brothers have been one of my favorite bands since freshman year of college so it was pretty awesome to shake their hands (Scott even gave me a hug).
The event itself (before, during, and after) was absolutely crazy. I’ve never seen so many starstruck people in such a small, confined space. It made me really appreciate the fact that I’m not (and never will be) famous. And despite all the ridiculous fanfare, Scott and Joe still seemed like cool, down-to-earth guys.
