Asheville's Ahleuchatistas is an expertly wrought aggregate of mechanical and organic, structural and free-form, art and math, sweet and bad-ass. Guitarist Shane Perlowin and drummer Ryan Oslance are, according to their bio, "on a musical odyssey of pure imagination, limitless in influences, combining tight-knit composition with improvisation, and delivering powerful live shows." Their journey has been at warp-speed since the release of last year's critically acclaimed Heads Full of Poison
. They played Hopscotch festival earlier this month; this week (Thursday, Sept. 19), they'll be at the Odditorium. Bad Fog and Cumulus also perform. 9 p.m., $5. http://ashevilleodditorium.com. Photo by Courtney Chappell
