RiverMusic closes out its 2016 season with live music from three acts: The Get Right Band, The Broadcast and Blitzen Trapper. The free show has moved to Carrier Park and takes place on Friday, Oct. 7.
This year’s lineup, scheduled by Jeff Whitworth of Worthwhile Sounds includes a danceable mic of funk, soul, rock, bluegrass and more — and many of the acts are locally based.
Tickets for the co-bill show at the Orange Peel (Friday, Oct. 21) go on sale next Friday, Aug. 12. Fans can also pre-order Blitzen Trapper’s (seen here) forthcoming album.
So you didn’t get tickets to The Black Keys. They swing through Asheville fairly often, and this fall brings a surprising number of rock shows sure to leave your eardrums begging for mercy. Here’s a sampling, from indie and punk to Southern rock and experimental.
