Image 1. Here comes the funk: Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band may be based in Asheville, but it spends most of the year on tour. Don't miss your chance to bask in the funk when the band returns for a show at Pisgah Brewing Company on Friday, Dec. 28.

Image 2. Psych-hop: Local hip-hop meets local psych-pop on Saturday, Dec. 29 as Weekend Cult (formerly Fist Fam) and The Critters share a disparate bill at The Grey Eagle.

Image 3. Behind the Mic: Asheville FM hosts dozens of weekly shows that run the gamut of musical styles and tastes (you name it, they've got it). But don't take our word for it: take theirs. Xpress brings you this weekly feature — direct from the DJs — highlighting a few of the station's stellar offerings. On Soul of the Blues you'll hear it all: Chicago blues, country blues, Delta blues, Texas blues, West Coast jump blues, East Coast blues, Louisiana blues, soul blues, blues rock and everything in between. Each week features around five artists, with a particular focus on one album from each. There's also a discussion of the artists' colorful backgrounds to give the music context and humorous insights from the dear departed Grand Daddy Blueshound. So, whether you're an aficionado or just curious about the blues, tune in Fridays from 7-9 p.m. for two hours of mind robbing, butt bobbing blues.
