The All Go West music festival returns to West Asheville today (Saturday, June 7), with music on three stage from 11 a.m.-Sunday at 2 a.m. Read more about the festival and its lineup here. With that in mind, this week’s playlist is for those who can’t make it to All Go West and want to live vicariously, and those who plan to be there and want to get in the mood. Selections include:
• The airy and driving “Arrived Real” by indie rockers Doc Aquatic (listen to the full album, Tombs, here). Doc Aquatic plays the Isis stage, 8:30-9:15 p.m.
• Hip-hop outfit Free Radio‘s “Friend Neckbones,” featuring Philo, Smidi, C-Mills, Jeremy Indelicato and cuts by DJ Ra Mak. Catch Free Radio on the Mothlight stage, 8:10-8:50 p.m.
• The deeply groovy and soulful “Are You Music?” from the album Easy Magic by The Secret B-Sides. That band performs on the outdoor stage, 5:15-6 p.m.
• Secret Agent 23 Skidoo‘s “Gotta Be You,” a kid-hop track that speaks to the inner child in all of us. 23 Skidoo opens the outdoor stage, 11-11:45 a.m.
