Avett Brothers fan who don’t get to see the band perform on New Year’s Eve in Asheville (or heck, even for fans who do make it to the sold-out Thomas Wolfe Auditorium show) get a second chance in May. The band’s sole N.C. date during the first half of 2010 will be at Merle Fest in Wilkesboro, N.C.
The Avett Brothers will close out the 2010 roots music festival with a Sunday, May 2 set at 3:30 p.m. Log on here starting at noon today to purchase pre-sale Sunday-only tickets for the Merle Fest date. (Pssst! The password is: northcarolina.) Pre-sale ends on Monday, Nov. 2.
