Have you opened the letter yet?
Open Letter Records brings another stellar, off-the-beaten path show to Asheville. “You were wondering where a rock aesthetic has improved jazz rather than compromising it? Here,” writes the New York Times, about Endangered Blood, a quartet of New York City heavy hitters. Featuring bassist Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, John Zorn’s Masada), drummer Jim Black, bass clarinetist Oscar Noriega and tenor saxophonist Chris Speed. Asheville’s superlative Ahleuchatistas opens. At the LAB on Wednesday, April 4. Doors 8:30, show 9 p.m. $10.
Healthy Easter? You bunny believe it
Come out to Pack Square Park for a family friendly Easter event on Saturday, April 7. With egg hunts, egg rolling contests, bunny-tail tossing, obstacle courses, a giant inflatable slide and more, it’ll be an Easter-y good time. Earth Fare is the sponsor, so the candy and food will be all-natural, say organizers at the Asheville Downtown Association. 2 to 6 p.m. Free. More at ashevilledowntown.org.
