I had never heard them but was pleasantly surprised at their little gem of a performance in 07.

My friend is a music writer in NC and so she came out to Coachella and did a story on them that year.

I wonder if the Avett Brothers new album will be out by Coachella 2009, I'd love to see them back. They put on such a good show.

I missed them at Coachella 07 and I seriously regret it. I have seen them twice since then, and they are pretty incredible live. I love em and I would LOVE to have em back!

I'm going to give this a much needed bump. They've been working on their follow-up to I and Love and You throughout 2011 and are expected to release it early 2012. I only watched them briefly at Sasquatch 09 before I had ever really heard them but remember being really caught up in how exciting of a live band they are. With Mumford bringing alt-country/folk (what the fuck ever) to the masses I think it would make perfect sense to have the Avetts back again.

They played 2010 on the Outdoor with some sound issues.

Avett Bros is one of my favorite Coachella memories. I remember walking over to the Gobi tent to see Grizzly Bear and walking into their set cause I got there too early. I hadn't heard Grizz yet, just had heard a bunch of hype and wanted to check it out. These guys were playing and my jaw dropped. I was completely captivated with their set. Slowly walked up closer and closer to the railing, getting pulled in more and more. By the end of their set I was asking everyone around me what the name of their band was, and finally got The Avett Brothers out of sometime. I bought every record they were selling in the record shop on site. I didn't even remember seeing their name on the poster prior to the show. They were easily one of my favorite sets that year. I remember describing them to friends like punk music with acoustic instruments. After that, I saw them every single time they came to LA, only missing two shows in the past four years. Their Coachella 2010 set was definitely riddled with problems, but they handled it like pros and didn't visibly bitch and moan to the audience. Their Stagecoach set the next weekend was light years better. I told them after the show I really appreciated how they handled themselves on stage the week before. Scott told me they were SO frustrated and were so sorry for the audience to have to deal with that.

But yeah, such a great band. I wish they would play every year. I also hope their next album has less piano and more banjo.

I wish that was my story. I got into them heavily about 6 months after they played in the Gobi tent and then saw that they played Coachella and I was there and I missed them. I did like the outdoor stage set even with the sound problems a few years later.

Same. Only got to see I And Love And You, my least favorite song of theirs. They've supposedly got a new record out soon, it'd be nice to see them this year.

This. Love them, but was very disapointed in their last album.
