Live Friday the 15th at 3pm: BROWNOUT

Feb 13, 2013

Brownout is the Austin-based psychedelic funk alter-ego of the Grammy-winning Latin big band Grupo Fantasma.  The 8 (or more?)-piece band visits Studio B for the first time on their way to their Friday night show in Asheville, with songs from their latest release "Oozy". 

To compose the songs for his terrific 2012 release, Corb Lund hunkered down in the remote cabin he built with his girlfriend and favorite uncle in rural Alberta. Just as the cabin was finished, his relationship crumbled and his uncle passed away.  Following weeks alone there, "Cabin Fever" was born.  The songs range from rockabilly to Western swing, cowboy balladry to country-rock.

Live Wednesday the 13th at 3pm: JOE PUG

Feb 11, 2013

Giving up his career as a carpenter to pursue music full time four years ago, Joe Pug has followed the path of countless other daring musicians, trying to establish a sustainable livelihood through grass-roots, one-fan-at-a-time efforts.  “Unless your surname is Dylan, Waits, Ritter or Prine, you could face-palm yourself to death trying to pen songs half as inspired as the 10 tracks on Joe Pug’s debut full-length”  (Paste Magazine).   Pug plays Knoxville, Asheville, & Charlotte this week.
