Carolina boys croon on Conan

You can't say "Avett Brothers" to a 16-year-old girl in North Carolina with out her losing her cool. It's true. These boys, who hail from the Carolinas, play a fascinating mix of punk and bluegrass with their unapologetic brand of rock and roll that always asks permission before blowing off the bar-room doors.

I'll admit it, I'm smitten. Especially given banjo player Scott Avett's former life as a painter, the poor boy must suffer something fierce, because his art is beautiful.
