CaroMia, performing at ISIS Restaurant and Music Hall, March 6


It's the first official weekend of March (What?!) and we've rounded up just a few of the crazy fun events this town has to offer. 

A Tribute to Sparklehorse

The Mothlight at Mr. Fred's

March 6 | Doors at 8:30 p.m. | Show at 9 p.m. | $5

The name alone suggests a night of fun and musical bliss, which is what you'll get. Sparklehorse, the lo-fi, singer-songwriter, roots pop work of Mark Linkous, gets a well deserved tribute from local musicians that include: Josh Carpenter, Emily Easterly, Christian Funk, Andy Woodward, and J Seger


An Evening with CaroMia

ISIS Restaurant and Music Hall

March 6 | Doors at 5 p.m. | Show at 7 p.m. | $7

This intimate one-woman concert will feature R&B, gospel, country, soul and blues tunes that will make you feel warm and fuzzy. Seriously, this girl can sing. But get there early and grab a drink, as only fifty tickets will be sold.



Rhubarb's Moonlight Breakfast



March 7 | 11 p.m- 2 a.m.

Who doesnt love a little breakfast at night? Or any great meal after you've been out doing your thing? The restaurant, known for an ever changing menu and locally sourced ingredients is offering a Moonlight Breakfast. Reservations are preferred so call ahead.


Travers Brothership with The Deep Fried Five , and The Sun Cans

New Mountain Asheville

March 7 | Doors at 8 p.m.| Show at 9 p.m. | $10

Natives to Asheville, the Travers Brothership will make their headling debut at New Mountain. Their alternative rock 'n roll with funk and soul influences will no doubt be a great ending to an evening that will start off right with some disco and rock by Nashivillle's The Deep Fried Five and locals The Sun Cans (pictured below).
