Clubland features: Grandchildren and Minstrel Radio Yoghurt

Indie orchestra: Philadelphia-based Grandchildren began as a solo recording project but eventually spawned a six-piece “electro-coustic orchestral pop band” that melds acoustic folk stylings with live electronics and dance-inducing percussion. The band plays Apothecary on Sunday, March 10.

Behind the Mic
Asheville FM hosts dozens of weekly shows that run the gamut of musical styles and tastes (you name it, they’ve got it). But don’t take our word for it: take theirs. Xpress brings you this weekly feature — direct from the DJs — highlighting a few of the station’s stellar offerings.

Dip a toe into the probiotic bliss with Minstrel Radio Yoghurt, featuring post-punk, pre-punk, new wave, old wave and whatever else seems right for the time. Host Tom Peters keeps the aural cultures flowing with interviews, phone calls and even the occasional live performance. Mondays at 7 p.m. Photo by Max Cooper
