"The idea for Mipso arose out of freshman year daydreaming at UNC Chapel Hill," says the bio for the roots-inspired trio. "After the usual band-making delays — Jacob took a year off to study winemaking in New Zealand, Joseph detoured to Argentina for Tango guitar lessons, Wood earned his chops in the Carolina jazz department — Mipso quickly went from idle picking to a campus staple." The group has since expanded its reach with a tour that's taken them as far as Japan and a new album, Dark Pop Holler (produced by Mandolin Orange's Andrew Marlin). Mipso holds a CD release party at The Isis on Saturday, Nov. 2, with guest David Holt. 9 p.m., $12/$15. isisasheville.com. Photo by Leon Godwin
