It's been several years since The Baker Family Band (led by Baker spouses singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Stuart and vocalist/keyboardist Liz) left Asheville for the sunny climes of Austin. Seems like Texas has done right by the Bakers. They recently released new EP When the Internet is Down (stream/download it at http://thebakerfamily.bandcamp.com) which showcases Stu's existential-meets-fantasy-meets-surprisingly-poppy song craft along with catchy melodies and explosive percussion. The band's current tour brings them back to Asheville — at least for one night. They'll be at The Grey Eagle on Sunday, April 22 with John Wilkes Boothe & The Black Toothe. 8 p.m., $8 at the door. http://www.thegreyeagle.com.
