Concert Review #16 - The Avett Brothers - Toledo Zoo Amphitheater - 08.05.2014

Watch out for the orangutan

I tuned into the live webcast of Lollapalooza this past Sunday to watch one of the highlights of the festival (there weren't many), The Avett Brothers.  They played before closers Kings of Leon in front of a rambunctious young, soaked crowd from the steady rain.  While appreciating the talented Avett's, I decided to go out to their website and see if they had added additional shows close to Cleveland.  I was delighted to see they were playing Toledo two days later on Tuesday.  I looked at my wife, said "Wanna go?" and even though there was no doubt on what the response would be, she said "We have to".  She was right, we had to go.  So, I went to Ticketmaster and bought the best tickets I could, which weren't bad on the ground level...of the Toledo Zoo.
