In case you've been wondering, Asheville-based math rock/prog rock/punk/jazz duo Ahleuchatistas takes its name from the melding of two words: The Charlie Parker song title "Ah-leu-cha" and Zapatista (as in the Mexican liberation movement). The band (Shane Perlowin on guitar, Ryan Oslance on drums) is rather like both: a composition of disparate and experimental forces. They've recently released album No. 8, Location Location, on Perlowin's Open Letter label. Ahleuchatistas holds a CD release party on Friday, July 15 at the Get Down. Slaw, IO and the Dispersants also perform. 9 p.m. ahleuchatistas.com.
