Smart Bets: Secret Agent 23 Skidoo

It's been a year and a half since Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, the king of kid-hop, left Asheville for sunny California. Where, perhaps surprisingly, his days are not filled with surfing and movie star spotting. Instead, he's kept busy playing shows (like New Year's Eve at Legoland for the third year in a row) and returning regularly to WNC. Appropriately, he'll turn up again for a Groundhog Day Jamboree at The Orange Peel on Sunday, Feb. 2, at 1 p.m. Banjo the Whistlepig, the mascot of local magazine Asheville Flyer for Kids, will be on hand. "We'll see how his shadow is doing, and kids will get to take a pic with him," says Skidoo. The Moodees also perform and young breakdancer group the Underdogs will be there. $9/free for kids under age 3. theorangepeel.net. An afterparty (complete with Bill Murray film Groundhog Day) takes place at The Millroom, from 3-5 p.m. ashevillemillroom.com.
