Smart Bets: Wallflowers

Is it a coincidence that Jakob Dylan's band, The Wallflowers, plays The Orange Peel the day after his father plays The U.S. Cellular Center? Probably. The important point here is the Wallflowers are not only back in Asheville, but back in general, following a seven-year break. Last fall, they released Glad All Over, with which they didn't just come back but came out swinging. The album features the Clash-flavored "Reboot the Mission" and The Clash's former lead guitarist Mick Jones on two tracks. Tuesday, May 7, 9 p.m. Luella and the Suns opens. $20/$22.
