BAND OF HEATHENS Live Thursday, January 19th at 12pm

Jan 17, 2017

Austin's roots-rock powerhouse five-piece Band of Heathens returns to Studio B for the first time in about six years, this time with songs from their new album celebrating ten years as a band. On "Duende" (a quality of inspiration, passion, spirit, expression...), they've distilled about 40 songs down to cover such varied topics as social media, immigration, materialism, legalization, and life on the road. They play Asheville's Grey Eagle on Wednesday, then pay us a visit on their way to Charlotte and the Visulite Theatre on Thursday. 

Bluesy folk-rocker (and former WNCW host) Laura Blackley won first place in the NC Piedmont Blues Society's Blues Challenge last October. They travel to Memphis to compete in the International Blues Challenge at the end of the month. She and her band (Ian Harrod, Josh Gibbs, Dorsey Parker, & Gabe Rohmann) return to Studio B before a few upcoming shows in Asheville and Spartanburg.
