The Avett Brothers play a show in Ybor City, Tampa, FL on July 18, 2009.

North Carolina folk-rockers The Avett Brothers come to the historic Orpheum Theatre on Saturday, September 5, and we've got a chance for a couple lucky blogdowntown readers to win a pair of tickets courtesy of Goldenvoice.

The band -- made up of brothers Scott and Seth Avett and bassist Bob Crawford -- is on the verge of releasing a new album, its first on a major label. "I and Love and You" hits stores September 29.

The band also just got a plug from Oprah in the August edition of her magazine.

Opening the show is Oregon-based Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside.

Want to go see the show? We've got two pairs of tickets to give away. Just leave a comment telling us why you should win, and be sure to leave content info via Facebook or email. Contest closes Thursday at 8pm.

Update (Friday): Congratulations to winners ndevelopment and Michael Murphy!

See the band perform an unplugged set in the "studio" of NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.
