Groundation at the Grey EagleJune 29thIf you have not heard Groundation before, you are in for a treat! Groundation is by far my favorite reggae band, but, I can not say that they are your typical reggae band. They incorporate creative time signature changes, interesting chords, and awesome solos into their music. Tickets are 12 dollars in advance, 15 dollars at the door. Doors open at 7p.m. and show is at 8 p.m.
Trinumeral Music Festival August 8th,9th & 10thTrinumeral Music and Arts Festival will be located at Deerfields (20 minutes south of Asheville) this year! This is exciting news because this festival has been held at many different locations in the past, and finally it will be close to home! Each year Trinumeral has been held on the day of the year when the dates “align in an auspicious numeric sameness”. It started on January 1st, 2001 (01-01-01) and this it will start on 08-08-08. The line-up is looking really good for this year; it includes Galactic, Lotus, Particle, GZA/Genius, Midnite, Kaki King, The Mahavishnu Project, EOTO and many more. Not only is the line-up great, but Deerfields is by far the best venue to have a festival in this region of the country
