The Avett Brothers Live from Red Rocks, This Saturday on iClips.net

The Avett Brothers’ sold-out show, taking place on July 9th from Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, produced by AEG LIVE Rocky Mountains, will be available for live webstream on a pay-per-view basis at iClips.net. The full performance will also be delivered in real-time to the world's largest HDTV screen at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, bringing the Avett Brothers’ amazing local fan base the opportunity to view the historical show from Red Rocks.

The Charlotte Motor Speedway, home to the massive 80’ x 200’ Panasonic HDTV, will host Avett Brothers fans on the evening of July 9th, supplying concert-grade speakers to turn the infield area in front of the video board into a one-of-a-kind concert venue. Tickets for the July 9th simulcast are on sale now and can be purchased at the speedway ticket office or by calling 1-800-455-FANS (3267).

“The speedway has been a hometown landmark for us our whole lives and we're proud to have an opportunity for our music to echo through that historical infield,” said Seth Avett. “For us, performing at Red Rocks and airing live in Concord is about the most ideal situation for being in two amazing places at once.”

The Avetts’ popularity skyrocketed on the heels on their major label debut, the 2009 album “I and Love and You.” Recently, the band has become accustomed to performing sold out concerts and in February they performed at the 53rd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles alongside Bob Dylan. “We are so fortunate to travel and play the many places we do,” stated Scott Avett.

In addition to delivering the famed Avett Brothers, the online broadcast will also offer the full performance of the evening’s opening act, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. The performances for all the artists will be made available for fans to purchase at iclips.net.

“We are so fortunate to travel and play the many places we do,” said Scott Avett. “To have an opportunity to share that with our supportive home town in a setting where great men like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and David Pearson competed adds to the sense of pride that we feel to be a part of the Charlotte community and this event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.”

Get Familiar with The New Familiars

Justin Fedor, Josh Daniel, Daniel Flynn, and Patrick Maholland all grew up playing music in some form or fashion and together make up The New Familiars. Together they’ve created a crew of thick-skinned, rowdy, determined musicians and songwriters. Multi-instrumentalist talents of Justin and Josh keeps the ever evolving sound. Willie Nelson, The Band, My Morning Jacket, and Otis Redding are named as a few of their heroes. They’ve shared the stage opening or closing shows with Johnny Neel (Allman Brothers), Levon Helm (The Band), Del McCoury, Emmitt-Nershi Band, and the Infamous Stringdusters. They’re also happy to be in their fifth year in the festival circuit.

“It’s American rock and roll” they’ll tell you. As much as they love bluegrass, rock and roll, and country, they skirt along the edge of all three. Blossoming out of a music scene that’s birthed loads of bands that blur and bend genre lines, The New Familiars happily sit in that place. Regardless, they’ll keep you on your feet, and that’s the important part right?

Their album Between the Moon & The Morning Light is a milestone for their career, which brought band member changes, and united the members that remained. Songs about love, luck, traveling the road, and finding one’s place in the world are what will be heard on Between the Moon & The Morning Light. Recorded by Joe Kuhlmann at 34th & Hudson in Charlotte, North Carolina, and mixed by Dave Glasser at Airshow in Boulder, Colorado.

Guests like Bob Crawford (Avett Brothers),Tania Elizabeth (the Duhks, Mary Gauthier), Sam Quinn, assure a level of energy, quality, and talent that The New Familiars plan to continue to share throughout their recordings and touring.

G. Love Premieres "Fixin' To Die" Video

G. Love premieres the video for title track "Fixin' To Die" featuring Scott and Seth Avett today over at Vevo. Be sure to catch G. Love on tour in support of his new country blues and roots album, Fixin’ To Die, set for release on Brushfire Records on February 22, 2011. Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, and produced by Scott and Seth Avett, the album is arguably G. Love’s most sincere and candid work to date.
Inspired by the shared musical heritage between G. Love and The Avett Brothers, the result is Fixin’ To Die, a collection of rearranged traditionals, a classic cover, and a slew of G. Love originals, many simmering for over a decade, all sharing a common goal: to strip away all pretense and capture the original spirit and sound G. Love has cultivated over his entire career but never fully embraced until now.
G. Love will make his first ever appearance at SXSW in 2011. Performance locations will be announced at a later date. The title track from the album is now available for free download.
