The mountain enclave of Asheville, North Carolina has a well-deserved reputation as a regional mecca for live music. Although it’s not the biggest venue in town, the intimate Grey Eagle beat out the larger, better-known Orange Peel in our poll as touring musicians’ top choice. Known for its excellent sound, great beer selection and attentive audiences, the Grey Eagle was singled out by artists as diverse as singer-songwriter Mason Jennings, post-rock instrumentalists Explosions in the Sky, and indie rockers the War on Drugs.

David Cook
w/ Kathryn Dean
at The Grey Eagle
($20 / $70 VIP)

When David Cook moved to Nashville in 2012, the expectation was that this singer-songwriter from the Heartland would emphasize the rootsy side of his sensibility, and sure enough, he had immediate success co-writing country tunes, including the Top-20 single “Kiss You Tonight” for David Nail in 2014. But new album Digital Vein is something else entirely, with Cook’s powerful voice and dynamic guitar work knifing through vibrant soundscapes that boldly juxtapose man-made grooves and electronic textures.

Rasputina
w/ Eliza Rickman
at The Grey Eagle
($17 adv / $20 DOS)
CANCELED

Pioneers in the use of cello as the sole instrument within a rock band, Rasputina has been inspiring young string players to commit a number of musical sins since 1996. The group’s concept was written as a manifesto, and manifested accordingly by directress Melora Creager as a wily subterfuge for a plot to open audiences to adventure. The funny, the sad, the heavy, the tender – it can all exist together. Employing elaborate costuming spanning a number of historical periods, Rasputina brings marginalized historical female figures and stories to light in the pop form, using archetypal characters such as Indian princesses, Hawaiian handmaidens and Medieval queens.

at The Grey Eagle

The gift of a great storyteller is the bringing of the listener into the story, and the story into the listener. It’s not just the words of the songs that provide that rare lasting transformative alchemy that has become so characteristic of Martha Scanlan’s work, and earned her the small loyal cult following that seems to be steadily growing. It’s the space between the words, the current of things, the sound of the place itself.

The Goddamn Gallows
w/ Skunk Ruckus
at The Grey Eagle
($12 adv / $15 DOS)

The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America’s Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland and later in Los Angeles, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments. In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of “twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly”, they began picking up stray musicians along the way – washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo – creating a sound referred to as “hobocore”, “gypsy-punk” or “americana-punk”, while never being stuck in any one sound.

The Stump Mutts (Album Release Show)
w/ MIKE LIVE & Hard Rocket
at The Grey Eagle
($8 adv / $10 DOS)

Listenasheville.com described the band’s sound as, “crankshaft rock that houses a fair deal of aggression, though its edges are rounded off. It’s logically structured, so the brightest light shines in the portrayal of the feeling.” The Stump Mutts’ songs evoke relatable stories of toxic relationships, love and loss, obsession, rebellion, deceit and desire.

w/ Death Valley Girls
at The Grey Eagle
($22 adv / $25 DOS)
Tickets now on sale

Legendary rock n roll pioneer Roger Kynard “Roky” Erickson hails from Austin, Texas. He is, in the words of music writer Richie Unterberger, one of “the unknown heroes of rock and roll.” As singer, songwriter, and guitar player for the legendary Austin, TX band The 13th Floor Elevators, the first rock and roll band to describe their music as “psychedelic”, Roky had a profound impact on the San Francisco scene when the group traveled there in 1966. While bands such as The Grateful Dead and The Jefferson Airplane had the their roots in traditional acoustic folk music, the Elevators unique brand of heavy, hard-rocking electric blues pointed to a new direction for the music of the hippie generation.

The Whiskey Charmers
at The Grey Eagle
(Free)

The Whiskey Charmers is a Detroit-based Americana band led by Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Fans have often compared their sound to riding through the desert with the top down. Mike McGonigal of the Detroit Metro Times says “There might be a plethora of Americana/ roots-infused acts in the greater Detroit area, but the Whiskey Charmers are a real cut above. This bunch are not poseurs. They do not strum ukuleles. They do not write songs about cowpoke bullshit. Their music is charming, original, and always a delight.”

of Montreal
w/ Showtime Goma & Nancy Feast
at The Grey Eagle
($15 adv / $18 DOS)

The band’s 14th LP follows two full decades of mercurial creative mania: swallowing up ’60s psych-pop, Prince-ly funk, and glammy prog in turn; morphing freely between full-band affair and cloistered confessional booth; comprising lyrics both painfully personal and absurdly fantastical; and recently drawing site-specific inspiration from culture capitals like San Francisco or New York City. The thread that runs through it all is Athens, GA’s Kevin Barnes, and Innocence Reaches finds him at his most light-hearted in years, working a Parisian stint, Top 40 sounds, and his newfound single status into the kaleidoscopic swirl.

Unknown Hinson
Halloween Show
at The Grey Eagle
($20 adv / $25 DOS)

Halloween Show! While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the antiperspirant. But don’t dismiss him as a novelty act. He’s one hell of a talent and has the music to prove it! Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of lead character “Early Cuyler” in the Cartoon Network’s “Squidbillies”.
