Smart Bets: Drunken Prayer

"If I lived in Brazil, would you come visit me?" asks Morgan Christopher Geer of Drunken Prayer on "Brazil," the opening track from his new album, Into the Missionfield. First this bit of news: You don't have to. While Geer has been based in Oregon in recent years,  with the release of Missionfield he's officially back in Asheville. Also good news: Missionfield rocks with a gritty conviction matched by crisp production and interesting arrangements. Here, Geer’s previous lo-fi folk-noir is traded in for the growl of electric guitars and the smack of a drum kit. Drunken Prayer holds a CD-release party at the LAB on Saturday, Feb. 25. The Treatment and DJ Lorruh also perform. 10 p.m., $5. http://lexavebrew.com.
