With threats of severe thunderstorms in the forecast, Lucero held strong to their rain or shine plans for their annual Family Block Party held on Saturday, April 22. While the rain did indeed pound Memphis in the morning, by mid-afternoon when the music started, the precipitation had died down to a not-bad-enough-not-to-go-but-just-enough-to-be-annoying level.
The Avett Brothers watched the music like the rest of the fans on night three of their At The Beach festival at the Hard Rock Hotel Maya Riviera. They had the night off, as Band of Horses played the role of headliner with Brandi Carlile as opener.
Full write-up to come, but here are a couple of pics from the night.
Night two is in the books for the Avett Brothers At the Beach, and what a night it was!
The Devil Makes Three opened the show and delivered an energetic set of mashed up throwback folk/bluegrass, and then gave way to the Avetts.
The headliners delivered a much more impassioned set than the night before. A full review will come post-fest, but highlights were a cover of “Mama Tried” and “Murder In the City” with Brandi Carlile sitting in.
The Avett Brothers At the Beach festival kicked off last night at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya with two strong sets of music – the first from opener Lake Street Dive and then a headlining set by the Brothers.
While there will be a subsequent review post-fest, enjoy a couple of pics from night one.
