From a song inspired by a Cherokee creation myth ("Ancient Golden Star"), to the use of chords and frequencies intended to facilitate sound healing within the human body, the three members of Dangermuffin live their vision of giving back to the universe through their art and their day-to-day lifestyles. As a touring regional rock band, they work as hard as anyone we know, crisscrossing the Carolinas and beyond, and they've done a great job putting this wonderful corner of our country on the musical map.

This four-piece Nashville/Paducah band blends blues, rock, punk, country, and a whole lot of energy to make their potent brew of Southern Gothic. Try to imagine someone embodying Jerry Lee Lewis, Iggy Pop, and David Byrne all in one, and you get frontman JD Wilkes (also of the Dirt Daubers). They visit Studio B for the first time Wednesday afternoon before heading to their show in Asheville that night, and Charlotte on Thursday.

With 12 years spent as the Dark Star Orchestra's lead guitarist, great gigs supporting Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Furthur, and spots here and there with Melvin Seals, Greg Anton, & others, John's definitely got the chops. His band (Waynard Scheller on keys, Klyph Black on bass, and Nathan Graham on drums) rolls through the area for shows in Charlotte on Thursday and Asheville on Friday. We're opening WNCW's Wednesday night Jar of Jam a bit early this week!
