If you have ever been so fortunate to witness a concert from the mighty The Avett Brothers, you'll understand why we're so excited to be giving away a pair of tickets to their Saturday, May 23rd show at the Crystal Ballroom.

Portland and the Avetts have a close relationship, as this city of ours caught on to the North Carolina trio—thanks to a now-legendary Pickathon performance—long before the rest of the country came around. Their upcoming two-night stand in town will feature all the hits from Emotionalism (and beyond), plus some new numbers from the Rick Rubin produced I and Love and You, which will be out August 11th.

To win two tickets into the loving Avett embrace, just comment below on why you think you deserve to go to the show. The finest comment by tomorrow (Tuesday) at noon will be declared the glorious winner. Good luck.
