Smart Bets web extra: Jonathan Scales at The LAB

Steel pan artist/Road warrior Jonathan Scales has been racking up highway miles across the southeast lately. He and his Fourchestra have played about 70 dates since February, with only a handful of those engagements taking place on local stages. But Scales (who just announced that he and his band will be part of Merlefest next spring) will be in Asheville this weekend.

It’s true: The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra plays The LAB on Saturday, Nov. 12 with Nashville’s world/funk/jazz outfit The Great Barrier Reefs. 9:30 p.m., $5.

In case you haven’t seen it (or even if you have) prep for the show by watching Scales’ video for “Muddy Vishnu”:
