Clubland features: Snarky Puppy, City and Colour, Yawpers

More is more: Texas- and New York-based fusion outfit Snarky Puppy isn't a band in the traditional sense: it's a collective of nearly 30 musicians swapping styles, instruments and influences to produce what bandleader Michael League has described as ""jafunkadansion." The highly respected ensemble visits Asheville on Thursday, Sept. 26 for a performance at Asheville Music Hall.

A literal pseudonym: City and Colour, the recording project of Alexisonfire's Dallas Green, is noted for its gentle melodies and often somber aesthetic. The Canadian songwriter visits The Orange Peel on Thursday, Sept. 26 in support of his latest full length, The Hurry and the Harm, released in June.

East meets west: Asheville gets a taste of the Rockies on Saturday, Sept. 28 when The Grey Eagle hosts Bandswap, "an initiative designed to create and grow relationships between Fort Collins' thriving independent musicians with like-minded artists in cities around the U.S." Featuring Colorado-based rock/Americana outfit The Yawpers (pictured) and Asheville's own Enlightened Rogues.
