It’s been awhile since Athens, Ga.-based reggae band DubConscious has played an Asheville venue. Which is not to say they’ve been resting on their laurels. Since coming together in 2002, the five-piece group has opened for the likes of Michael Franti, Burning Spear and Steel Pulse. The band’s most recent album is NonViolent, which fits perfectly with their mission: “spreading the word on sustainability, unity, and a greater understanding of the human experience.” DubConscious plays the Asheville Music Hall on Saturday, Jan. 28. 10 p.m. show, Dub Cartel opens. Tickets are $8 in advance (here) or $10 day of show. Want to win a pair of tickets? Xpress holds a giveaway tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 27) in the noon hour on Facebook.
