When: Fri., April 15, 9 p.m. 2016
Do you like the Avett Brothers? Well, of course you do. Then allow us to introduce you the Will Overman Band. The Virginia-based quintet has drawn frequent comparisons to the Avetts, owing to a similarly roots-oriented folk-rock sound that harks back particularly to the AB’s scruffier early canon. But WOB aren’t simply an Avetts knockoff. Drawing on its southern roots, the band presents an energetic take on twangy rock as reverent as it is original. The Will Overman Band play Friday, April 15, at ArtsRiot in Burlington with locals Squimley & the Woolens and Little Slugger.
Price: $8/10. AA
