It's Foxygen time!

The California based rock duo sets their sights on The Orange Peel

Tomorrow night at The Orange Peel, Foxygen will bring their classic-rock leaning experimental pop sound to the hearts and souls of Asheville. The duo is touring on their fourth studio album Hang which was released at the start of this year. Opening the show is Gabriella Cohen, an Australian singer/songwriter influenced by the fuzzy sounds of '50s and '60s pop.

Explosions In The Sky make their way to The Orange Peel

The post-rock quartet heads back to AVL for the first time since 2012

The godlike hype that surrounds Explosions In The Sky speaks volumes to the power and energy that the Texas based band possesses. Founded in 1999 under the name Breaker Morant, the four piece post-rockers have gone on to put out some of the most interesting releases in modern music. Asheville will be graced with their musical talents this Saturday evening for a sold out show at The Orange Peel with Thor & Friends.

A spiritual night at The Mothlight with Avey Tare

The experimental musician's Tuesday night performance goes deep

The lights were dimmed, but that was about the only ordinary thing occurring at The Mothlight this past Tuesday evening. Animal Collective founding member David Portner was doing a solo show under his Avey Tare moniker and blowing everyone's minds. Opener Sugar Cat even kicked the evening off with some guided meditation to get the crowd into the right headspace. 

Avey Tare headed to The Mothlight

This is a show you can't miss

Avey Tare AKA David Michael Portner is set to jam out at The Mothlight on Thursday night. You may know him best as a co-founder for the experimental pop band Animal Collective. He's also done quite a bit of work with fellow Animal Collective member Panda Bear AKA Noah Lennox. His solo album Down There is a true work of genius and has gained a massive cult following since its release in 2010. 

Allah-Las get groovy at The Grey Eagle

A psychedelic night of music and fun

The Grey Eagle felt like a time machine on Thursday night, with the Allah-Las and The Babe Rainbow providing transportive sixties-riffic sounding tunes. At times throughout both band's performances, it felt as if you could be right in a cool club back in 1964. Nostalgia aside, both artists put on killer performances that won't be soon forgotten.
