KUNG FU (1 Set Kung Fu, 1 Set Steely Dan): The Fez Tour 2017 | $15

  • Salvage Station

The music of Steely Dan is a perfect vehicle for Kung Fu.  Best described from The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock And Roll – “Less a band than a concept, Steely Dan was one of the most advanced, successful, and mysterious pop units of the 1970s. Combining pop hooks with jazz harmonies, complicated time changes and cryptic, often highly ironic lyrics, the band sounded like no one else.”

AVL's 2nd Annual 420 Boogie

Asheville's 2nd annual 420 Boogie will be the biggest 4/20 celebration in town. Come support House Bill 185 to allow sick patients in NC to have safe access to medical cannabis. This is the kick off to our 4/22 March for Medical Cannabis. Special Performances by The Get Right Band, The Digs, Siamese Jazz Club, and Phuncle Sam. Food, local vendors, and live glass blowing. 70% of North Carolinians understand that denying the sick safe access to safe medicine is not only dangerous but morally wrong. We are tired of being locked up and denied rights to what keeps us well. You do not have to smoke cannabis to stand with the sick who need it, to understand this will fight the opiate epidemic, and begin to heal our community naturally. Proceeds to Asheville's NORML fight to raise awareness for HB 185.

Over the years, she’s cultivated her own sound by blending her influences ranging from Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, R.L. Burnside and Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as her musical peers.
