The 8th annual Asheville Fringe Festival, a four-night marathon of performances held at three venues in downtown Asheville, was an extravaganza of wild and weird performance art that continues to thrill, challenge and tantalize local audiences. If you missed this year’s eclectic offerings, here are a few videos clips from Friday night’s performance of “Fringe Audio,” held at the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center and of “Fringe on Wheels,” the outrageous LaZoom tour that carried a rowdy crowd to various locales in town.
