Smart Bets: Tav Falco

Musician/photographer/actor/author Tav Falco has said his main artistic purpose is "to stir up the dark waters of the unconscious." He'll stir those waters twice this week when his tour beings him to Asheville for a show and a book reading (yes, that’s right). Tav Falco's Panther Burns (an "art damage" rock band, formed in Memphis in the late '70s) performs at Asheville Music Hall with The Krektones and Pleasure Chest on Thursday, June 27 at Asheville Music Hall (9:30 p.m. $15/$18. And earlier in the day on Thursday, he’ll read from Ghosts Behind the Sun: Splendor, Enigma & Death, Vol. 1 of the Mondo Memphis the encyclopedic history and psychogeography of the Tennessee city on which he collaborated with rock writer Erik Morse (4 p.m. Free. Battery Park Book Exchange).
