Xavier Rudd
w/ Emmanuel Jal + Christina Holmes • Asheville Yoga Festival Afterparty
8:00pm at New Mountain AVL
($25 adv / $28 DOS)

Enthralling audiences with his ability to wield so many instruments at once, Xavier's 2002 debut album introduced a sound that was a mix of guitars, yidakis (didgeridoos), stomp box and percussion, blues harp and vocals - something distinctly new, yet tied back through time to the spirit of our ancestors.

Culture featuring Kenyatta Hill
40th Anniversary Tour
9:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($17 adv / $20 DOS)

Culture is reggae’s preeminent harmony group. Born in the '70s golden age of reggae, the ever viable Culture garnered continual US and international acclaim for its long series of classic “roots” albums. Culture’s legendary “Two Sevens Clash” (Shanachie) was Reggae Album of the Year in 1977 and is acknowledged today by Rolling Stone Magazine (April 11, 2002) as #25 of the 50 all time coolest records (the only reggae album to make the list).

Hurray For The Riff Raff
w/ Xenia Rubinos
9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $18 adv / $20 DOS)

For her band's latest recording, Alynda Segarra drew early inspiration from cult favorite Rodriguez, a Mexican-American who translated working-class stories from Detroit into powerful rock ballads, and the Ghetto Brothers, an underground band from the 1970s South Bronx who stitched Puerto Rican nationalist messages into a rough-hewn fabric of Santana and Sly and the Family Stone Afro-Caribbean funk. She reached back to her cultural ancestors in the form of the radical political group the Young Lords and the salsa singer Héctor Lavoe.

Drive-By Truckers – Night 1
w/ Lydia Loveless
9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $27 adv / $30 DOS)
Tickets now on sale

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. These master songwriters wisely avoid overt polemics to explore such pressing issues as race, income inequality, the NRA, deregulation, police brutality, Islamophobia, and the plague of suicides and opioid abuse.

No BS! Brass Band
9:00pm at The Mothlight
($13 adv / $15 DOS)

Based in Richmond, Virginia, No BS! Brass Band has quickly earned a reputation as a premiere band to see for heart-pounding energy and uncontrollable dancing. They take their music into uncharted territory, embracing the spirit of New Orleans into its original East Coast modern funk and fearlessly combining elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound.
