Sherwood’s Music opened in classic Asheville form on Friday with a boozy party of friends and well wishers that included stellar sets from Electric Owls, Ice Cream and curtains. In addition to offering repair services for everything from large-format consoles to classic Moog gear, the shop hosts an assortment of vintage instruments and amplifiers on consignment, which lined the walls during the dim-lit, late-night affair. The crowd was familiar and well acquainted, the space cozy and crowded, and the celebration had the comfortable familiarity of a college house party. We arrived just as curtains, the moniker for Dash Lewis’ one-man vocal landscapes, closed the opening set, but even catching a few minutes of the soaring display of looping enginuity was enough to leave an impression. You can catch curtains again on Oct. 22 when Lewis opens for If You Wannas free performance at The Grey Eagle. Here’s some footage from the rest of the evening.
