Clubland features: VietNam, Earth Day and Asheville FM

Don’t call it a comeback: Brooklyn-based indie rock outfit VietNam quietly dissolved after the success of its self-titled debut in 2007, but principle songwriter Michael Gerner is back with a new lineup and drony, atmospheric take on the group’s dark blues rock. Vietnam plays Double Crown on Saturday, April 20 with Curtains and Wyla.

Love your mother (Earth): Along with eco-friendly speakers, children’s activities and a host of local environmental organizations, the Asheville Earth Day celebration on Lexington Avenue will feature an eclectic mix of performers including The Infamous Stringdusters, Yarn, Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics (pictured) and more.

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.

And the Address is a program of strange, yet compelling music in a free-form setting … OK, it's more like a record party that gets a bit out there, but it's always about having a good time. Along with old and new heady sounds, host Randy Booher offers entertaining and informative chatter, occasional guests and lots of surprises. Friday nights at 9 p.m. Photo by Max Cooper
