With the ability to pick a soft, heart-wrenching ballad or power through a mischievous, punk-soaked Americana rocker — sometimes even in the same song — Scott and Seth Avett have brought enough Southern charm, rare honesty and experimental courage to the stage to capture an expansive, eclectic group of ears. From foot-stomping, volatile bluegrass to melancholy, hard-hitting tearjerkers, the two brothers, who are usually backed by Bob Crawford on stand-up bass, have an archive that allows them to build unpredictable sets that will keep you on your toes. Think those harmonies blend well on album; just wait until you hear them bounce off the walls of the historic Hill.

$35/$45. 8pm. Hill Auditorium, 825 North University Ave. 734-761-1800. www.theavettbrothers.com —SR
