Given that the Avett Brothers launched their career on the backs of the North Carolina venues and recording studios that are hurting because of HB2, I find "not taking a stand" to be ungrateful at best. I know many members of the Avett camp aren't pro-HB2, so pleading ignorance seems disingenuous. I wonder if when he says Avett shows are inclusive, Scott's focusing on including the people who choose to exclude.
