Lucius has a big night at The Orange Peel

A wildly theatrical show by the indie pop band lights up the Peel

A slow stream of people made up a slightly sleepy crowd at the start of this past Tuesday night's Lucius show at The Orange Peel. The sleepy vibe didn't last long though, as opener Sam Evian got the steadily growing floor of the venue into the musical mindset. Before long, the Peel was filled with peeps and Lucius was up on stage giving an A+ performance.

Lettuce shreds The Orange Peel

Costumes, colorful lights, and groovy tunes

If you weren't dancing, then you weren't there. Lettuce played a nearly sold out show this past Friday night at The Orange Peel to kick off Halloween weekend. Opener Eliot Lipp got the night started off on the right foot with a super fun DJ set. The night just kept getting crazier from there, with many of the attendees dressed in costume while busting a move on the floor.

Deliciously Lucius

The Brooklyn indie pop five piece heads to The Orange Peel

Tuesday night Asheville will get a chance to see Lucius, a Brooklyn indie pop five piece that has risen to fame thanks to their infectious style of songwriting. Opening the show is Sam Evian, a fellow New Yorker known for keeping things on the mellower side of life. The Orange Peel will be hosting the two artists and is hopefully aware of how much dancing is going to happen.

Lizzy Ross and Fireside Collective make The Altamont Theatre swoon

A peaceful night of music in downtown Asheville

The shiny wood floors of The Altamont Theatre were just as inviting as the softly lit stage that would soon elevate Fireside Collective and Lizzy Ross in front of a crowd of people. The intimate, tucked away music venue that's Asheville's self-proclaimed “best listening room” was the perfect spot to appreciate the elegant night of talented musicians.
