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.

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. 

Let's talk Midnight Snack

We talk Mario Kart, tacos, and music with the Asheville band ahead of their single release show

This Saturday night at The Mothlight, Asheville's very own Midnight Snack are having a big ol' party to celebrate the release of their killer new single. "Shadow Chaser" just dropped a couple days ago and has consistently made me smile every time I've listened to it. I got a chance to interview the band about the upcoming show, their travel situation when on tour, and their favorite place to eat here in our fair city!
