The Dirty Names play Asheville tonight

From this week’s Smart Bet: “We have played with ZZ Top, The Stone Temple Pilots, Bret Michaels and opened up for The Felice Brothers,” says Annapolis, Md.‘s Dirty Names in an email. This kind of makes them sound old-ish. They’re not. They weren’t born when “Cheap Sunglasses” came out. They might not have been born when “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” was first sung. Lead singer Harrison Cofer has a fantastic head of hair and the oft-mentioned moves like Jagger. These things can not be understated, especially in regard to a band whose bio begins, “Hide Your Daughters.” They open for Whiskey Gentry at The One Stop on Wednesday, Feb. 8. Have Gun Will Travel also performs. 10 p.m. $5.

Watch their video for “Salt Water Jackie,” which won Best Music Video at the Williamsburg International Film Fest:
