Let’s face it; the holidays can be as stressful as they are relaxing. This week, Xpress brings you a few low-cost escapes from the Thanksgiving table.

Mize first gained national attention for collaborating with fellow Kentuckians Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Ben Sollee. However, the multi-instrumentalist’s genre-hopping solo work soon caught the attention of outlets ranging from The New York Times to NPR, overshadowing her backing work and earning the songwriter a deal with Yep Roc Records. Tonight, Mize stops in Asheville for a performance downtown.
Paper Tiger’s Molly Kummerle performs a DJ set as Molly Parti, opening for Gravitron Project at the One Stop on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Xpress will give away a pair of tickets to the show. Photo taken at Moog Music by Erin Brethauer.

Downtown will be filled with free activities this weekend, but with Bele Chere comes lots of people. If you’re not one for crowds, consider these budget-friendly events that offer some distance from the throngs of sun-kissed strangers.
No shame in starting the weekend early. You just finished off a weekend, and it was nice, right? So take a cue from your relaxed state and kick off this coming weekend on Thursday. July 21 has a number of entertainment options (a hip-hop show, The Devil Makes Three and Angela Faye Martin — seen here) worthy of your careful consideration.
The One Stop Deli and Bar is now open (it’s in the renovated space where Stellas used to be). And don’t forget to check out the menu. Get a behind-the-scenes look, via a video tour, at the premises and find out about the artists and crafters who helped create the One Stop.
