Happy weekend eve (here’s where to spend it)

• Fourteen-piece Brother Joscephus & the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra play the Emerald Lounge (112 N Lexington Ave., Asheville). Members of Asheville Vaudeville open. 9 p.m.
BroJo made a major impact at the 2009 Bele Chere festival, what with the stage full of people, the white suits, the colorful umbrellas and the Mardi Gras beads. The band also also rocks out the soul and roots tunes with plenty of psychedelic-tinged jammy interludes and feel-good, crowd-pleasing covers.

• Knoxville’s Appalachian roots musicians The LoneTones take the stage at Mo Daddy’s (77 Biltmore Ave., Asheville). 10 p.m.
“We’ve been called modern folk, Americana, folk rock, ‘an Appalachian Belle and Sebastian,’” writes the band. “We’ve been accused of having a unique sound and strong song writing. But it doesn’t really matter what anyone else says.” Instrumentation includes banjo, mandolin and glockenspiel, as well as rock drums, atmospheric guitars and keys, and the hauntingly lovely vocals of Steph Gunnoe.

• Folk/acoustic/roots musician Butch Ross stops by the Westville Pub (777 Haywood Rd., West Asheville) at 8 p.m. Free show.
The Chattanooga-based singer/songwriter also plays the dulcimer. His tag line: “It’s traditional music. It just doesn’t sound like it.” Check out his song “‘Sweet’ Spotted Pony,” which incorporates the melody of “Sweet Home Alabama.”
