Re: “Interview: Scott Avett Talks The Avett Brothers' True Sadness, Not Becoming a Farmer, And Not Making a Statement on HB 2

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.

Many bands communicate human empathy and support of social justice without being overly preachy or political. If you want to see an example, Shovels and Rope does it beautifully.
