Asheville-by-way-of-Portland-by-way-of-Asheville folk-noir outfit (and sometimes one-man band) Drunken Prayer was, according to press, inspired by a conversation with Tom Waits at a fish market in Sebastopol, Calif. The band, fronted by Morgan Geer, is back on home turf this week. Still touring this year’s gutsy, country-informed Into the Missionfield ("a journey down a path less traveled, but always more rewarding"), Geer takes the stage at Get Down on Friday, Aug. 31. The Treatment and DJ Lil Lorruh also perform. 9 p.m., $7. http://www.drunkenprayer.com.
