The Avett Brothers -- known for blending country, folk and rock 'n' roll melodies -- are no strangers to Charlotte, since band members stem from Concord, a city right around the corner. The group sold out headlining New Years Eve shows last year at Belk Theater, and now the band is moving onto even higher musical grounds. They'll be opening up for the Dave Matthews Band at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on April 24. $38-$68. 7 p.m. Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, 707 Pavilion Blvd. 704-549-5555. www.livenation.com.
