Smart bets: RBTS WIN

“We just want to show West Asheville peeps a good time before they go into their holiday family hangs,” says Javi Bolea of RBTS WIN. “The goal is a sticky floor by the end of the night.” Bolea, along with bandmates Cliff B. Worsham and Josh Chassner, follows a multifarious musical recipe — one influenced by soul and R&B, but served up in a modernized, synth-laden format. Tracks like “Beach Child” and “Mountain Child” offer additional flavor, showcasing the musicians’ disparate geographic pasts. The chill-pop trio will treat fans to unreleased songs and a few cover tunes after an opening set by Charlotte rapper Stranger Day (aka Shane Coble). DJ J. Overcash will also be on deck, prompting dance parties before and after bands. Performances start at The Mothlight on Friday, Dec. 19, at 9:30 p.m. $5. Photo by Andrea Coon
