Smart Bets: Christabel and the Jons

Knoxville-based Christabel and the Jons have been bringing their jazz-informed indie-folk to Asheville for a number of years now, but it never gets old. Just old-timey. The band centers around Christa DeCicco, lead singer/songwriter/wearer of vintage hats/player of a 1950s Silvertone archtop guitar. She's joined by Seth Hopper (violin, mandolin, trumpet and accordion), Jon Whitlock (the only actual Jon among the Jons, on drums) and Chris Zuhr (upright bass). The heavily-touring group makes its way to Altamont Brewery on Saturday, April 14. 9:30 p.m., $5. Photo by Brian Wagner.
