Smart Bets: Truth & Salvage Co.

The last time Americana rockers Truth & Salvage Co. rolled through Asheville was in 2013 when the band headlined a Downtown After 5 concert. It’s been nearly a decade since Scott Kinnebrew, Walker Young and Bill “Smitty” Smith — all former members of local swampy ragtime outfit Scrappy Hamilton — moved to L.A. There, they met Tim Jones, Adam Grace and Dean Moore and became Truth & Salvage. But whatever they call themselves and wherever they call home, they’re always welcome back in Asheville. The group plays an intimate show at The LAB on Sunday, May 25, at 10 p.m. $12. (Catch them while you can — rumor has it the band is on the move again and it might be awhile before another local show.) Photo courtesy of the band
