West Asheville

New Songs and Tasty Burritos

Goodnight, Texas and Bombadil play The Mothlight

The chilly Thursday evening air was made a little warmer thanks to Goodnight, Texas and Bombadil's show at The Mothlight. The December 1st event in West Asheville marked the start of the tour that is set to travel its way up the East Coast. Goodnight, Texas got to play Asheville for the first time and Bombadil got to play some new songs off of their forthcoming album—a wonderful night of firsts. 

Andy Shauf and Chris Cohen at The Mothlight

The two musicians head to Asheville

Saturday night will see two powerhouse acts come to The Mothlight in West Asheville. Andy Shauf and Chris Cohen are currently on a worldwide tour to bring their songwriting and multi-instrumental talents to the ears of anyone who wants to listen. Listen you should, because these two boys know their stuff when it comes to crafting elegantly deep and pleasant musical stories. 

Ring in December by seeing Bombadil and Goodnight, Texas

Start the final month of 2016 on the right foot

What better way to kick off the last month of 2016 than with an uproarious night of music and fun at The Mothlight? Bands Bombadil and Goodnight, Texas want to make sure that before all the holiday stress and New Year's resolutions you're able to kick back and get folky. The Thursday night show features both artists doing what they do best.

Hungry for good music? Have a Midnight Snack

Asheville art pop band gets ready for a show at ISIS

Everything cool always happens on Saturday nights, and Midnight Snack's show at ISIS Restaurant and Music Hall will be no different. Actually, I take that back, because it'll probably be a tad bit cooler than the typical Satuday night. Carly Taich and DJ Walkhome will open the night to round out the roster on what will end up being a very fantabulous evening of music and fun. 

An evening with Don Gallardo and The Battlefield

ISIS Music Hall hosts two americana music greats

Up close and personal doesn't just describe the space in which Don Gallardo and The Battlefield played in on Sunday night, it also illustrates the depth and passion that's found within the two artists' music. ISIS Restaurant and Music Hall proudly presented the folky musicians in their upstairs lounge to a sold out room of people. It was a full throttle hootenanny of good times and good music.

The Battlefield & Don Gallardo set up to play ISIS

Prepare for a night of acoustic americana at its finest

This Sunday evening, ISIS Restaurant & Music Hall will host two well known figures in the world of americana music. Don Gallardo and his smart style of country opens the show, followed by up and coming musicians The Battlefield. If you or someone you know appreciates the art of songwriting then this is one show that's not to be missed.

An evening with Cass McCombs

Silky smooth songs on a Sunday night at The Mothlight
A wild head of hair isn't the only crazy thing about Steve Marion, the New Jersey based multi-instrumentalist who goes by the moniker Delicate Steve. From the time him and his band were on stage to the time they stepped off, it was a nonstop romp of straight up fun and driving rhythms that made your ears happy.

Hiss Golden Messenger lights up The Mothlight

An uplifting evening of music in West Asheville
An orange light spread its warmth across the front of Taylor's denim shirt as they went into their first song. The crowd immediately started feeling the music, with all eyes transfixed on the stage and all shoulders swaying side to side. A solid mix of old favorites along with new jams from this month's album Heart Like a Levee permeated the first part of the performance.
