Grey Spat Matters...and so does Guided By Voices!

Pure rock and roll magic

Last Friday night at The Grey Eagle saw Ohio's legendary rockers Guided By Voices put on an explosive show for a nearly packed venue. With their most recent release Space Gun having just come out back in March, the crowd was hyped up and ready to have a good time. The front row loudly chanted “GBV! GBV! GBV!” as the clock neared 9:30, with the show originally listed as starting right at 9.

A brief chat with Guided By Voices

We talk pre-show rituals, Italian food, and more with one of the greatest bands to ever do it

Holden Mesk, writer for Asheville Music Guide, spoke to Guided By Voices bassist Mark Shue ahead of their show tomorrow night at The Grey Eagle. Read the full thing below!

Hi Guided By Voices! Thanks for doing this interview with Asheville Music Guide. You've been to Asheville a number of times, what's your favorite part about coming here?

We love Asheville. It’s a beautiful part of the country and we always look forward to coming through town. The shows are a blast. You guys have a lot of great record stores too.

One night, four bands, tons of fun

Fleetwood's brought the jams this past weekend

The sun was just starting to set right before the stacked show kicked off at Fleetwood's this past Sunday evening. The vintage-tinged venue was hosting The Obsessives, Nervous Dater, Cocordion, and Flugel for the night. Some people were conversing outside, others were browsing the quirky and cool retro wares inside—but overall everyone there was ready to rock and roll.

Are you ready to rock?

Fleetwood's in West Asheville will see four equally awesome bands do their thing Sunday night. I'm talking The Obsessives, Nervous Dater, Cocordion, and Flugel all sharing the same stage! Everybody is gonna get their jam on, and for just $5 a pop you and your pals can join in on the fun. If you're still not sold let me delve into some of the deets on the night's performers. 

Respectful mosh pits and more with Diet Cig and friends

A night of indie rock goodness at The Mothlight

Last Sunday night at the Mothlight was as refreshing as the 70 degree days Asheville had seen over the winter weekend. The lineup was full of talented young artists from all over the world: Diet Cig, Great Grandpa and The Spook School. All three acts really meshed well together and were perfectly suited for this awesome tour. Their sounds really complimented each other and kept the energy levels and fun off the charts.
