Ben Lovett has a habit of going big. From his free record release at The Grey Eagle last year to the epic Ghost of Old Highways project, the rocker/composer/producer/multi-iinstrumentalist has a penchant for flare. Last week, Xpress dropped by the Masonic Temple to check out the set of his latest video, “Black Curtain.” (Photo by Bill Rhodes)
Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center and Norte Maar, a nonprofit arts organization based in Brooklyn, N.Y., host a night of collaborative performance, poetry, music and dance at the Masonic Temple Saturday, Aug. 6, at 8 p.m. The show’s title remains prospective: Untitled (as of yet). They’d better hurry! The event is tonight!
While the theatre-going experience is, first-and-foremost, about the play, there’s certainly something to be said for ambiance. And, in the case of Dauntless Productions’ performance of Dracula, I have to recommend the play to anyone with even a passing interest in Halloween/vampires/things spooky/the Masonic temple. See this show — which runs through Saturday, Oct. 30 — if only for the experience of being in the appropriately spooky auditorium of the Masonic Temple.
Take a peek at the Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville, which has opened up its 270-seat auditorium for public concerts, dramatic performances and lectures. The Land of Sky Symphonic Band performs tonight, Thursday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m.
