SMART BETS: The Goodies

The Goodies, in case you haven't been formally introduced, are an Asheville institution. The art-rock band dates back to the '90s. Led by Holiday Childress, the Goodies put on a show that's part storytelling, part theatrics and mostly unbridled rock 'n' roll. Over the years, the Goodies have taken on various forms — Childress has honed his stage presence as a solo performer and in theatre (Terpsicorps’ The Many Deaths of Edward Gorey & other works; Magnetic Field’s MILF: The Musical). The band reunites for a pre-New Year's performance on Saturday, Dec. 29 at Asheville Music Hall. Doors at 9 p.m., show at 10 p.m.. $10 in advance or $12 day of show.
