Saturday, Sept. 4
• Shortwave Society from Knoxville “uses elements from orchestral and electronic soundscapes to create a unique accompaniment to their off-kilter pop songs. Violin, cello, and a sea of vocals weave intricate tapestries while guitar and pianos pulse, and electronic bleeps and blips fill every nook and cranny of your subconscious.” They’ll be at White Horse (105C Montreat Rd., Black Mountain, 669-0816) at 8 p.m.

• Funk/jamband Kung Fu Dynamite gears up for a 10 p.m. show at Mo Daddy’s (77 Biltmore Ave., Asheville, 258-1550). New-on-the-scene alt-rock/pop trio Arbor Bueno opens.

  1. Young Couples

    Unfortunately, Rat Jackson will not be performing due to a family tragedy. Young Couples will now be headlining, with supporting act TBA.
