Shine on: According to the band's bio, "The Shine Brothers achieve an alchemic balance of slanted sunshine pop song structures with howling devilish rhythms, crowned by dirty, weaving vocal harmonies." Sounds good to us! Catch the rowdy, recent Asheville transplants (featuring members of The Black Angles) at The Double Crown on Thursday, Oct. 3 with Clear Plastic Masks and Death Ray.
Fight for your right: The Odditorium hosts a benefit for embattled local women's clinic Femcare on Thursday, Oct. 3, featuring live music, auctions, food and more. Performers include folk duo Jen Duke and Kyle Campbell, local blues guitarist and songwriter Aaron "Woody” Wood (pictured) and electronic acts like Third Nature, KRI and J-Hecht. All proceeds benefit FEMCARE.
Rough around the edges: Skunk Ruckus has deep roots in traditional Appalachian music but embraces the gritty side of rock and roll for a sound the band describes as "hillbilly gutrock." The local trio celebrates the release of its latest album, Raised on a Stick, at Altamont Brewing Company on Saturday, Oct. 5.
