The colors of the Avett Brothers’ show at the Palace Theatre on Sunday night were mostly pinks and blues, with a bunch of red thrown in, and a gorgeous turquoise near the end. Visually the concert was a feast of light and color with backgrounds comprised of either diamonds or roses.

And a rocking concert it was. Faster, more furious and louder than anything the Avetts have put out on recordings, the brothers and band mates are often referred to as Americana music, folk-rock, roots, indie, or alt country, but on Sunday night they put all the ingredients through a high-speed blender and cranked out mostly a rollicking rock, even punk feeling, made with mostly acoustic instruments. There were solo acoustic moments for both Scott Avett and his brother Seth… and just the two of them together thrown into the mix.
