Laughter's the best medicine: A host of local comedy organizations join forces at Isis Restaurant and Music Hall on Thursday, Oct. 10, to raise money for a local child battling acute lymphoblasic leukemia. Memphis-based stand-up Mo Alexander headlines the evening, and all proceeds benefit the 2-year-old's medical expenses.
Green with envy: Colleen Green's self-described "stoner pop" is fuzzy, bouncy and melodically irressitible (whether you're a stoner or not), drawing on influences as disparate as minimalist punk and '60s girl groups. But Green's style doesn't require you to know any of that. Her lighthearted musings are about as straightforward as one is likely to find in modern indie rock. Green visits Asheville for a show at The Odditorium on Saturday, Oct. 12, with experimental rock duo Albert Adams.
If you build it, they will come: The latest addition to West Asheville’s burgeoning Haywood Road scene, The Mothlight, hosts its debut performance on Friday, Oct. 11, with experimental alt-country songwriter Richard Buckner, whose new album, the dense, literary collection Surrounded, was released last month.
