Seeing the Avett Brothers in a sweet outdoor spot like Whitewater is ideal. In this situation, the stalwart folk/pop/rock band’s occasionally bland yet usually deft Americana mish-mash has not only the benefit of being liberated from the studio — which hasn’t always done the band justice — but also being ensconced in its proper setting. With the band at work on its forthcoming 10th album, fans can expect to hear some new stuff, the first since the material on 2016’s True Sadness.

Also on the bill is the rapidly ascendant Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, a real gem of a roots-rocking outfit fronted by Willie Nelson’s son Lukas. All in all, this excellent Americana bill shows the way forward in the genre.



$66-$395, Fri May 10, 8pm, Whitewater Amphitheater, 11860 FM 306, New Braunfels, whitewaterrocks.com.
