THE AVETT BROTHERS SIGN TO COLUMBIA RECORDS
These days when I hear a band I love was signed by a major label I'm not sure whether or not to congratulate them or start the stopwatch. In this case, I'm betting on the big show, and I will send a mazel tov out to THE AVETT BROTHERS for their jump up to Columbia Records. Apparently the old Buddha, Rick Rubin, was moved by these kids' brilliance (didn't he also work with The Jayhawks?) and their amazing live show. Couldn't happen to a nicer crew of guys!
