The Avett Brothers bring their shiny brand of folk pop to town this weekend. Scott and Seth Avett come to Seattle on the heels of their eighth studio album, “Magpie and the Dandelion,” which came out Oct. 15. Fans turned off by the corporate sheen of 2012’s “The Carpenter” won’t find much relief, but on the whole “Magpie” is a stronger set of tunes. Nicholas David, who finished third on NBC’s singing competition, “The Voice,” earlier this year, opens the show.
