Power, or “Amandla,” exists in “every fiber of the living experience,” according to Claude Coleman Jr. (formerly of Ween), who christened his band with the Zulu word. In live format, the psych-soul rocker takes on frontman and guitar duties alongside fellow Ashevilleans Jon Lauterer (drums), Rachel Waterhouse (keys, vocals) and Dave Gilbert (guitar, vocals). In the recording studio, Coleman morphs into a one-man band, playing all instruments, engineering and producing his own songs. In anticipation of Amandla’s upcoming album release, Coleman and company will perform Laughing Hearts in its entirety for the first time ever. Local bands The Toothe (psychedelic folk) and Press (guitar-driven rock) open the show at The Mothlight on Saturday, Nov. 15, at 9:30 p.m. $10/12. themothlight.com. Photo courtesy of Coleman
