We should have known it all along, considering the band’s name; After a roughly two-year hiatus, Perpetual Groove is back. Earlier this year, the quartet’s two homecoming shows in Athens, Ga. sold out within minutes, and to satiate fans, the band has scheduled back-to-back shows in every single city on its remaining 2015 tour — except Asheville. Perhaps that means the rock musicians’ largely improvisational performance will be delivered with twice as much oomph. But either way, showgoers can expect lively and masterful instrumentation that’s only intensified by the imaginative stage sets and blazing spectacles dreamed up by PGroove’s longtime lighting designer Jason Huffer. The Mantras open the show at Pisgah Brewing Co.’s outdoor stage on Saturday, Aug. 29, at 7 p.m. $22.50/$25 before fees. pisgahbrewing.com. Photo by Lance Bryant
