The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers

Updated Feb, 19th 2013

Ihave decided to the create a poster for The Avett Brothers show at Artpark Mainstage Theater in Lewiston, New York (right outside of Buffalo) on May 24, 2013.

My wife and I have been listening to The Avett Brothers since their album 'Emotionalism' was released in 2007. We had also attended a concert at the Water Street Music Hall in Rochester NY during the tour for that album. 

At that show I watched, in amazement, as Scott Avett picked away on his banjo to so many of their great songs. He played so hard that he broke a string or two. As a member of the crew approached him with a new banjo I noticed that there were several backups. While they played the rest of the show Scott must have played through about another 5 string on the different banjos. I thought "Damn that guy is playing the hell out of these songs." It is part of the reason we still love The Avett Brothers to this day, because they play with so much passion.

This memory brought me to my first idea for the poster I want to design for the gig at Artpark. *See images below.

So after reading the great feedback I got from everyone. I am going with Concept 3 the shoe shine box. I think it is the most unique of the 3 concepts and I liked the suggestions by DKNG to add the polish tins and brushes. I am excited to keep working on this. Let me know what you think. Thank you.
