After being rained out earlier this year, Big Love festival was rescheduled for the fall (Sunday, Sept. 15). But Big Love fans don't have to wait for September to celebrate all that's great about Asheville (music, crafts, food and beer) — there's a pre-party this week. Pleasure Chest provides the soundtrack and there's a raffle with prizes including a year of free advertising at Ray's Weather, a $100 gift certificate to Hip Replacements and special gift packages from Highland Brewing, Asheville Grown and the Big Love Fest. Held at Bywater on Thursday, Aug. 8, 5 p.m. http://loveasheville.org.
