Smart bets: Worldline

The photos for local sci-fi rock band Worldline, on the group’s website, all evoke the fantastical otherworldly environs of  planetariums, film sets or well-conceived theme parties. Suspended orbs and strands of fairy lights glow against dark backdrops. It’s no wonder that the project — conceptualized by producer/singer-songwriter Andrew Schatzberg — also lends itself to live art. Look for just such an event at UNC Asheville in March. But first Worldline puts in an appearance at The Mothlight — the band’s first show at that venue. It’s also Worldline’s first local performance since its album release extravaganza for Compass Sky last spring. “We’d love to see your faces, then melt your faces,” the band says on its Facebook page. Luxury Spirit and George Terry & The Zealots share the bill on Saturday, Feb. 7, at 8:30 p.m. $5. themothlight.com. Photo by Carrie Turner Photography
