Three bands, five bucks — that’s the basics of the local showcase taking the stage at The Orange Peel on Friday, April 3, at 9 p.m. The lineup offers elements of Americana, newgrass, folk, rock and pop. Sidecar Honey features the songwriting of Dave Dribbon and is as rootsy as it is polished and pop-savvy. Mangas Colorado (bonus point for the historic name reference) started as a busking act and cites influences from The Eagles to The Avett Brothers. Pop-rock outfit The Sun Cans is actually made up of brothers, and their sound borrows from retro rock, delivered with a wink. Before the show, Asheville Music Professionals hosts a free gear-repair workshop (facilitated by Sherwood’s Music and Guitar Mama) and swap, 3-6 p.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register or for info. theorangepeel.net.
