Seemingly in the Goombay! spirit, two bands — world/jazz group The Brand New Life from Greensboro/Chapel Hill and locally based Afro-beat band The Klavenauts — share a bill and an Afro-funk focus at One Stop on Friday, Aug. 26. The evening showcases the Klavenauts' Sean Smith on trumpet and Brand New Life's Mamadou Mbenge, "a Senegalese talking drum master, recently moved to North Carolina from West Africa," according to press. Come ready to dance. 10 p.m., $6. http://ashevillemusichall.com
