I attended a fantastic concert at the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels on Friday night. The Avett Brothers headlined but the main draw for me was the opening act, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real. I was mesmerized by the set they played at the Luck Festival back in March and eager to see them again. Lukas not only looks and sounds a lot like his father in his younger days but his songwriting skills are impressive. Lukas and POTR have a new album coming out next month, Turn Off the News (Build a Garden), and I love, love, love the title song.
“Turn off the news and build a garden,
Just my neighborhood and me,
We might feel a bit less hardened,
We might feel a bit more free”
Note: There is one F bomb near the beginning but please don’t let that deter you.
