Backstage Sass Asheville

Pretty Lights co-founder Michal Menert brings his brand of electro-soul back to Asheville with a new album and a new band, The Pretty Fantastics. And they are.

The Polish Ambassador and The Human Experience perform Friday, October 9 at the New Mountain Amphitheater. It's one of only 4 tour dates through 2015, so get on it.

Dubstep may be a dirty word, but Minneapolis-based Vaski assures us it can stay fresh with careful craftsmanship and a sonic sensitivity that ranges from chilled, melodic electro to high-energy party bass. He's been crushing the scene since he was a teenager.

Is anyone throwing "official" after parties for local electronic shows? BomBassic’s increasingly popular After Hours are the only ones I'm hearing about and attending. Let's make these guys official, for goodness' sake.

Just as different bars attract different people, a jukebox’s music selection either reinforces the desired clientele or drives it away. Where are the best jukeboxes on the Asheville scene? Where are the worst?
