One night, four bands, tons of fun

Fleetwood's brought the jams this past weekend

The sun was just starting to set right before the stacked show kicked off at Fleetwood's this past Sunday evening. The vintage-tinged venue was hosting The Obsessives, Nervous Dater, Cocordion, and Flugel for the night. Some people were conversing outside, others were browsing the quirky and cool retro wares inside—but overall everyone there was ready to rock and roll.

A night of indie rock goodness at The Mothlight

Last Sunday night at the Mothlight was as refreshing as the 70 degree days Asheville had seen over the winter weekend. The lineup was full of talented young artists from all over the world: Diet Cig, Great Grandpa and The Spook School. All three acts really meshed well together and were perfectly suited for this awesome tour. Their sounds really complimented each other and kept the energy levels and fun off the charts.

Jens Lekman delivers pure magic at The Mothlight

One big 'ol party

This past Thursday night was a special one over at The Mothlight in West Asheville all thanks to Jens Lekman. The weather outside the venue was chilly and the air was filled with excitement. The sold-out show was already packed even before opener Peter Oren took the stage. People outside were begging for tickets because this was gonna be one of the best shows of the year and we all knew it.

Yay for Jens!

The swedish singer stops by AVL

Tomorrow night Jens Lekman will grace the stage at the Mothlight. Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, he's made room on his tour for some very lucky US cities, including Asheville. He's a global indie pop prince with both critical success and an adoring fanbase all over the world. His music is influenced by artists like Stephin Merritt, Jonathan Richman and Belle & Sebastian. His songs are characterized by bright, charming samples blended perfectly with clever lyrics.

All hail Calvin Johnson

One of the best shows to grace Asheville this year

Last week at The Mothlight was a holy night for all involved. Olympia, Washington native and icon of the DIY music scene Calvin Johnson blessed us with his presence on Wednesday night. Johnson earns his legendary status with decades of musical trailblazing. Calvin founded K Records, an important indie record label with early releases from bands like Beck, Modest Mouse, and Built to Spill. Johnson also found personal success in hugely influential bands like Beat Happening, The Go Team and The Halo Benders.
