(ITHACA, NY and COOPERSTOWN, NY) DSP Shows and Brewery Ommegang are proud to announce that The Avett Brothers will open the pair's 2017 Summer Concert Series on June 2 at 7:00 pm at the brewery in Cooperstown, NY. The Avett Brothers are an American folk rock band that combines several exciting genres of music including bluegrass, country, punk, and rock and roll to delight crowds around the county. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, December 16 at 10 am via DSP Shows.

The Avett Brothers played to a sold out crowd at Ommegang in June of 2015, and this show too is expected to sell out quickly. "We are thrilled to announce the first show of our 2017 Summer Concert Series," says Tara Ritchko, events, Hospitality and Visitor Experience Manager at Ommegang. "DSP Shows and the brewery team have worked hard to make sure 2017 will be an exciting year filled with great music, quality beer and great memories for all that attend. We couldn't think of a better band to kick off the season with than The Avett Brothers."

Tickets are $50 in advance. Families are welcome for this all-ages show, and children ages five and under do not require a ticket. Camping passes are available on a first come, first served basis for the first 1000 people to purchase a ticket. Camping is an additional $15 per person and available only through DSP Shows' website.

About The Avett Brothers' current album

True Sadness is a patchwork quilt, both thematically and stylistically. Wherein a myriad of contrasting fabrics make perfect sense on the same plane, this album draws upon countless resources from its writers and performers. Sonically, the album is as multidimensional as its makers. The same could be said of its long list of influences. So the quilt is sewn, in part, with the brightly colored threads of Queen, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Jimmie Rodgers, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Gillian Welch, Aretha Franklin, Walt Disney, Pink Floyd, Kings of Convenience, calypso of the 1950s and country of the 1930s. Rock and roll is here, as always. There are moments of undeniable celebration and camaraderie, others of quiet and lonely exhalation. Throughout the album, we stitched together the boldest red and the calmest green, polka dots and stripes, the roughest denim and the smoothest velveteen. They came together because they are the best patterns we have and because each of us brought our own fabric to the quilting frame.
