Acoustic Asheville: Dangermuffin

By Jesse Hamm

Folly Beach, S.C. is not only the official beach destination of most of Asheville, but the home of Americana roots-rockers Dangermuffin. According to the trio’s bio, their sound “encompasses ska, calypso, and even Southern rock, often within the same song.” And Relix wrote, “Just like many a funny named band before them — Phish, The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee come to mind — Dangermuffin is likely to become synonymous with those fans who love bands that deliver something new and promising each show.”

Here, the band performs “Nowhere Path” and “Skinimin” during a special acoustic performance at Pisgah Brewing Co.

Both songs are on the band’s new record, Songs for the Universe, to be released on Tuesday, Nov. 11. Dangermuffin returns to the area, playing at Asheville Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 3, at 10 p.m. Jon Stickley Trio also performs. $8 in advance/$10 day of show.
