Checking in with Brother Oliver

The folky bros gear up to play ISIS and drop their new album

I got a chance to speak with Andrew Oliver from the psychedelic folk-rock band Brother Oliver, which is a music project that he and his brother Stephen started back in 2011. The brothers have a big show this Thursday evening at ISIS Music Hall along with Triptych Soul that will mark the start of their East Coast tour. To make things even more exciting, the day after the show their self-titled third album comes out for all the world to hear!

A weekend getaway with Al Petteway

The fingerstyle guitarist treats ISIS Music Hall to an intimate performance

Last Sunday night at ISIS Music Hall the upstairs dining room not only got to enjoy great food but also got to enjoy great music. Al Petteway was there to play a super relaxed set of tunes to the sold out room of fans, friends, and family. With a freshly shaven face, Petteway wasted no time in showing off his super skilled guitar work.

The masterful guitarist brings his talents to Asheville

Tomorrow night Isis Music Hall welcomes Al Petteway to the stage. Are you in the mood for some seriously impressive guitar work in a super cozy West Asheville setting? If so, this might be just the show for you. Much of Petteway's work is deeply inspired by the Appalachian mountains, so it's a perfect fit to be showcasing his immense talents in Asheville.

Chill jams and good times

Chastity Belt and Darren Hanlon get groovy at The Mothlight

This past Sunday night at The Mothlight was chock-full of chill jams and good times thanks to Chastity Belt and Darren Hanlon. The warmth of the music was welcomed on the surprisingly chilly summer night. Both acts are well-loved by many and it was amazing to see them come together and do their thing for the excited folks crowding the West Asheville venue.

This Sunday night, get ready for a double shot of wonderful, because Darren Hanlon will be joining Chastity Belt on their international tour, and they'll be making a stop at well-loved West Asheville venue The Mothlight. If you're feeling like maybe you don't have quite enough amazing music in your life then this is probably the show for you. 

Black Marble and Body Of Light bring the coolness

The Mothlight + these bands = perfect combo

This past Tuesday night at the Mothlight was a nonstop dance party. You can always count on the Haywood Rd. venue to deliver interesting acts in a comfortable atmosphere, and Tuesday night was definitely no different. Black Marble and Body of Light came together for a stunning night of ultra-cool music.

This upcoming Tuesday night, you better get ready to dance. The Mothlight is hosting two super synthy bands for one night of pure musical pleasure. Black Marble and Body Of Light will be in the house to whet your '80s whistle and get your head bobbing. The combo of these bands together is gonna be a dark and moody dance party that you'll never want to end.

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!
