The Avett Brothers – Another Is Waiting”

The Avett Brothers have released their newest video for their song “Another is Waiting.” This is the first single off of their upcoming album Magpie and The Dandelion set to release on October 15th. The video explores the price of chasing fame and the dog-eat-dog world of the entertainment industry. The video was co-directed by older brother Scott Avett and features models, skeletons, and was shot right here in Nashville, Tennessee.

 

            In fact, the Avett brothers chose the aesthetic and eclectic Marathon Village, just northwest of downtown Nashville, as their backdrop to their video. The band rolled into town about a month ago and spent the day filming inside Marathon Music Works, Garage Coffee, as well as up and down the Clinton Street block that makes up Marathon Village.  If you haven’t visited, or even heard of Marathon Village we have the perfect reason for you to come to our nick of the woods and check out this exciting neighborhood! On Friday October 18 Marathon Village is throwing a block party with food, music, and all things Marathon Village. Our neighbors are some Nashville’s most creative businesses, they include Marathon Music Works, Corsair Artisan Distillery, The Bang Candy Company, Garage Coffee, and 5 Points Digital Imaging. We will be celebrating all the patrons of Clinton Street with an outdoor stage featuring, the Los Angeles based Vintage Trouble, the Redbull sound select artist coming from Athens, Georgia The Futurebirds, the eleven-piece band from Nashville Kansas Bible Company, and those funky boys from Murfreesboro. DeRobert & The Half Truths. Inside Marathon Music Works there will be a dance party extravaganza as well as an indoor food truck court!

The Avett Brothers in-studio

I’ve been a HUGE Avett Brothers fan for a few years now and was very excited to find out they were coming into the studio.  I delayed my trip to Moogfest in hope of being able to film the performance.  Sometimes with larger bands like The Avett Brothers, I just wait until the artist comes into the studio and sneak in to ask.  95% of the time an artist will be OK with me filming.  The only time I’ve been turned down in two years, was M. Ward who told me, “Maybe another time.”  I’m going to call him out on that next time he comes into the studio.  You time is coming soon….M.Ward!

A day before The Avett Brothers performance at Ryman Auditorium, they had a 5 piece drum set delivered to the studio.  I’m not sure who told them our studio is big enough for that….the artist performance space is 6×5.  The Avetts left their drums behind and performed “Kick Drum Heart” without the drums.  It was worth being a few hours late to Moogfest.  Here is the footage from “Kick Drum Heart” and “Jenny and The Summer Day.”
