New Mastersounds cancel tonight’s show; DJ Logic, Laura Reed and others to play

The New Mastersounds won’t play tonight, but they’re about the only ones who won’t. A lengthy roster of Asheville-area all-stars will perform tonight at the Grey Eagle. Here’s the word, from promoter Rhoni Sampson.

“The New Mastersounds work visas were held up by the US Embassy. Here is the new lineup.

Headliner: DJ Logic

Performing with DJ Logic:
Laura Reed and Debrissa McKinney (Laura Reed and Deep Pocket)

Sam Hovey (SPAM All Stars, Damien Marley)
Mary Francis (Eymarel).”
