Behind the mic: Asheville FM

Image 1. Turn it up, pour a drink, dance in front of your mirror: This is She-Bop Radio, a quirky pop culture show where music meets magical musings on life, love and juicy gossip. Your life's about to get funky as we mix topics like relationships, sex and celebrity scandals with the musical stylings of artists like Madonna, Michael Jackson and Boys II Men. Of course She-Bop always throws in a few calls from friends around America and interviews with local artists and interesting folks in Asheville as well. So join JaimeLeigh Weidenmiller Wednesdays from 6-7pm and feel what you want to feel … thrills, chills, and eargasms. Image 2. Delightful dissonance: Cursive is closely associated with the Omaha scene that spawned country-leaning indie rock outfits like Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley, but the band's noisey rock ballads are heavier, faster and more explosive than all their Midwestern peers combined. The band visits Asheville for an earth-shattering performance at The Grey Eagle on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
