Christmas Jam GritVegas
It's gonna be cold this weekend, Asheville! We've got events and activities to keep you toasty!

Xero God
This coming Friday, 10/28, celebrate BEATLIFE with a free show at the One Stop with headliners Xero God and Mother HOOD.

Huzzah!
We've got your weekend on tap! Check out what Asheville has to offer in this edition of the Asheville GritVegas Weekend Update!

Derrick Curtis
The next BEATLIFE show, thrown by the Asheville Beat Tape Collective, happens Saturday, 9/17, and is a tribute to the late North Carolina producer DFLN (Derrick Curtis). A lineup of special guests and friends of Derrick will show support and love at West Asheville's Mothlight.

PHAZE GAWD
Charlotte rapper PHAZE GAWD (Tony Potts) recently released Definitive Theosis, a new EP produced by deceased artist DFLN, and it's powerful stuff. We talked with the GAWD about music, politics, race, and the state of hip hop in North Carolina and the country. PHAZE GAWD plays BEATLIFE at the Mothlight on September 17th.

Escape from ATL
Atlanta-based producer and Asheville BEATLIFE performer 10th Letter (Jeremi Johnson) recently released new LP, Escape from ATL. It's a vivid exploration of a future that is both strange and strangely like our own.

GritVegas 4th of July Update
It's 4th of July weekend in Asheville, and we've got a lot of ideas for how you can celebrate Independence Day--and all the days around it. From live music to independent bookstores to downtown shopping and, of course, brunch, we've pretty much covered all the bases. Happy 4th, y'all.

BomBassic
There's no better way to celebrate Independence Day than by exerting your personal right to dance your face off. This month's free BEATLIFE show happens on July 4th at the Mothlight with headliners BomBassic and Electrochemical and support from Samuel Paradise, DJ Kutzu, and Musashi Xero.
