The Avett Brothers Sweaty, stomping punk refrains to spare and tender folk lullabies, the brothers’ raw vocals to Bob Crawford’s owning of the upright bass, this band kicks ass and fills the emptiness. Get saved. October 6, 8 p.m., $40, Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.

Go

War Horse You could feel the oxygen being sucked out of the room when Smith Center president/CEO Myron Martin surprised a VIP audience in February with an appearance by Joey, the three-man equestrian puppet at the center of War Horse. Gasps quickly turned to cheers, and now Smith Center theatergoers who have clamored for a non-musical play on the big stage finally get their wish.
