Ok, so it's technically not happening on the weekend, but we'd be remiss not to dedicate this weekend update to the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017.

GritVegas Weekend Update 5/19-5/22
This weekend is all about art and music in Asheville, with events ranging from the first Downtown After 5 to the Spring Stroll in the RAD.

The Eagle has long been a staple of the Asheville music scene, with one of the kindest, most passionate dudes in the business running it all: Jeff Whitworth.

Here at Team WSAVL Call Me we came up with some extra categories we think should have made the cut.

Asheville's music scene and culture is a huge draw to our economy and The Orange Peel has been a big part of that.

Downtown After 5, presented by Harmony Motors, returns Friday, August 15 with soul music from The Dynamites featuring Charles Walker and Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics.

Summertime in Asheville is a wonderland for most of us. Local beers flow from the taps, feet and paws alike run through the river banks, and our forests fill up with happy hikers seeking a quiet moment with nature and a starry sky.
