Description:
In the United States and Canada government policies and popular media create a misleading narrative that places people of color at society’s margins. From cultural restrictions to harmful stereotypes the seemingly opposite experiences of the first and most recent people to live on this land share the same struggles. Framed within the Native American and immigrant experience, Crafted Strangers explores how craft can be used as a tool for regaining control over how one chooses to define themself. The seventeen artists featured in Crafted Strangers represent a diverse and unique perspective of racial and ethnic identities within the Americas. While craft has been a common means of expression historically across cultures, Crafted Strangers focuses on contemporary artists reinterpreting tradition. Through the materials selected, the tools used, and the method of display, traditions of beading, weaving, tufting, sewing, collage, braiding and drumming are reimagined. This treatment of the craft genre allows for a sophisticated dialogue that questions how strangeness or otherness are crafted and broken. What does it feel like to be a stranger in home, society, and country? Look beyond first impressions and see identity as an evolving collection of experiences rather than a fixed story. The curators would like to acknowledge that we are guests in the unceded territory of the Tsalagiyi Detsadanilvgi people of what is presently called Asheville, North Carolina. Exhibition will open Friday, September 15th, with a public reception from 5-8 pm. Exhibition open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-6 pm, following. Crafted Strangers is curated by the 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellows Matters Unsettled (Cass Gardiner and Quizayra Gonzalez) and organized by CCCD. The 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellowship was made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. Exhibition programming is supported by Donna and Ralph Briskin. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Benchspace programming is supported in part by Sara and Bill Morgan.

Description:
From the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Girls of Atomic City comes the fascinating true story behind the magnificent Gilded Age mansion Biltmore--the largest, grandest residence ever built in the United States. Help celebrate the launch of THE LAST CASTLE: THE EPIC STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, AND AMERICAN ROYALTY IN THE NATION'S LARGEST HOME. This is a hometown story from one of Asheville's finest writers. Author Karen Abbott (Liar, Temptress, Soldier Spy) will join Denise in conversation for this not-to-be-missed in-store event. About the book: Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York's best-known families. She grew up in Newport and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George Vanderbilt was one of the most watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House. Before their marriage, the wealthy and bookish Vanderbilt had dedicated his life to creating a spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 acres of North Carolina wilderness. He summoned the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to tame the grounds, collaborated with celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt to build a 175,000-square-foot Chateau, filled it with priceless art and antiques, and erected a charming village beyond the gates. Newlywed Edith was now mistress of an estate nearly three times the size of Washington, DC, and benefactress of the village and surrounding rural area. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore--and secure the future of the region and her husband's legacy. The story of Biltmore spans World Wars, the Jazz Age, the Depression, and generations of the famous Vanderbilt family, and features a captivating cast of real-life characters including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Teddy Roosevelt, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Henry James, and Edith Wharton. The Last Castle is the uniquely American story of how the largest house in America flourished, faltered, and ultimately endured to this day. Karen Abbott is the pen name of Abbott Kahler. She is the New York Times bestselling author of SIN IN THE SECOND CITY, AMERICAN ROSE, and, most recently, LIAR TEMPTRESS SOLDIER SPY, named one of the best books of 2014 by Library Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, and Amazon, and optioned by Sony for a miniseries.A native of Philadelphia, she now lives in New York City, where she's at work on her next book.

The Messthetics is a new instrumental trio with Brendan Canty (D), Joe Lally (B), and Anthony Pirog (G). Brendan Canty and Joe Lally were the rhythm section of the band Fugazi from its inception in 1987 to its period of hiatus in 2002. This is the first band theyve had together since that time. Joe has returned from Italy, and is ready to play. Brendan is very happy to have him back. The two missed each other, and the playing of the music together, so the feeling of the world being righted is right there in the foundation. Anthony Pirog is one of the greatest guitarists anywhere. He challenges our preconceived notions about genre and guitar sound. He continues to shape, tear down and reshape his unique conceptions of what guitar can be. The Messthetics is an unsupervised sonic playground that is driven primarily by Anthonys imagination, and his not-so-latent desire to torture his rhythm section with odd time signatures. The three of them, Canty, Pirog, and Lally, are The Messthetics.

with Kathryn Dean
When David Cook moved to Nashville in 2012, the expectation was that this singer-songwriter from the Heartland would emphasize the rootsy side of his sensibility, and sure enough, he had immediate success co-writing country tunes, including the Top-20 single Kiss You Tonight for David Nail in 2014. But new album Digital Vein is something else entirely, with Cooks powerful voice and dynamic guitar work knifing through vibrant soundscapes that boldly juxtapose man-made grooves and electronic textures.Working in Nashville opened me up creatively to trying different things, Cook explains. Writing for country acts has been freeing in the sense that I can bring out that side of my creativity, and it brought some freshness to the other side of what I like to do. So I ran with it, going into the creative process with the blinders off. I just wanted to try things, and there was no formula. Honestly, I didnt even know if I was gonna make another record; I decided to just write and have fun and see what happens.As an experiment, Cook applied what hed learned from working with Music City craftsmen in that time-honored narrative vein to the material he was writing for his own use. It was fun and a new challenge to try to attack my own songwriting in that way, he begins, then says with a laugh, In hindsight, what the hell was I thinking trying to take this on? But it ended up being an amazing process, and it led to a record that Id put up there with my prouder moments.Asked why he decided to title the album Digital Vein, Cook explains, My last independent record, back in 2006, was Analog Heart, and after my major-label journey, with circumstances being what they are, this record is certainly a progression. I dont think its very much like Analog Heart at all, but the process of putting it together was similar in the sense that I worked with a very small team, and I put a lot of myself into every aspect of it. It felt like a throwback in that regard, so I wanted the two records to be connected, if only in name.Analog Heart and Digital Vein bookend a tumultuous decade in Cooks life and career, as, after fronting a Kansas City-based bar band for 10 years (Wed be lucky to get 10 people, he quips, and most of them would be family members), he accompanied his younger brother Andrew to auditions for American Idol, auditioned himself on a whim and wound up winning the competition in 2008. Released later that year, his self-titled major label debut album sold 1.5 million copies, and though the follow-up, 2011s This Loud Morning, debuted in the Top 10, he wound up as an indie artist once again. As one door closed, another opened, and Cook forged a new career as a songwriter after moving to Nashville in 2012, but he continued to tour as well, as his personal songbook grew thicker. In 2014, he began the process that led to the recording of Digital Vein.Cook recorded the new album in his home studio, working with his longtime friend and onetime bandmate Andy Skib, who engineered, and the rhythm section from his touring band, playing the bulk of the parts himself. The whole thing, he says, was an experiment to see if (A) I could make a record this way, and (B) if I could enjoy doing it this way. Im a control freak, and to have this level of control has been empowering. It was definitely a different process for me, but I cant recall ever having more fun making a record.The project was funded in part by contributions from fans through a highly successful PledgeMusic campaign. Weve had an awesome experience with PledgeMusic, says Cook. The best part is that fans have become a bigger part of the process than in records past. The hope is that, by continuing to build those relationships, well be able to hit the ground running, and ultimately get this music into more peoples ears. I was a little apprehensive about that dynamic at first, but it turns out that its a great way to humanize yourself to your audience. Its nice to tear down that wall, because the end game is that people hopefully will feel more connected to the humanity in the record.Humanity pulses through Digital Vein, from impassioned opener Heartbeat to the haunting metaphysical question of Where Do We Go. On the first single, the rocking Criminals, written with Nashville song-smith Blair Daly, Cook presents his own take on the classic theme of lovers on the run, a notion that has long transfixed the American consciousness, from Bonnie and Clyde to Bruce Springsteen. We started with a Wallflowers One Headlight kind of groove and went down that path, Cook points out. Its a story thats been told before for sure, the idea of young lovers trying to beat the odds its you against the world, and youre gonna make it work, no matter what. Thats what I wanted the cover of this book to look like.Theres a duality on the album between ardently devotional love songs and others shot through with a dark undercurrent, enabling Cooks subtly intense cover of the Chris Isaak classic Wicked Game to function not simply as a vocal showcase but also as a thematic link between these two vectors.Everybody goes through experiences of love and loss, and Im no different, says Cook. In that regard, its natural to pull from that database for inspiration. But what I enjoyed the most was pulling from outside sources, like reading a newspaper article or seeing a painting that just hits a nerve. There are songs on this record that have to do with subject matter that Ive never personally experienced, but things that have inspired me all the same. When I pay attention to the peripherals, it leads to records like this one.Another highlight, the languid yet propulsive Better Than Me, was written by Chase Foster, but Cook fully inhabits it, delivering the self-lacerating lyric knowingly and with beguiling nuance. Killer song, says Cook. It had been on my radar for a couple years, and we were finally able to get it cut.The albums most personal song is the poignant Home Movies. As Cook recalls, Not too long ago, I had the chance to look over old photos with my family, and that brought back memories of my brother Adam. The experience got me in a certain mindset, and I consciously wrote that song about growing up and spending time with my older brother, who passed away of brain cancer in 2009. Hes been a part of every record Ive made, but with Home Movies especially, theres a tangible aspect.Since Adams death, David has devoted himself to fighting the disease, to the extent that philanthropy is now as important to him as his music. I think I would have been involved either way, he says. But seeing what he went through, and what his wife and his kids all went through, touched me deeply. And thats another avenue where the fans have been insane. We crossed the million-dollar threshold last December, which is unfathomable to me still. Records are going to sell or not sell, but raising that money for cancer research puts everything in perspective it makes you realize what really matters.Cook becomes reflective as he looks back on his journey, with its ecstatic highs and devastating lows. I have no regrets, he says of his Idol experience. It has ultimately let me do some amazing things in the last seven years, culminating in this record. Who knows where Id be right now if werent for all that. Prior to the show, I was tending bar to pay the rent, and I was a really bad bartender. So to have the resources that I have now to be able to make a record this way its huge. Ive still got a platform and an avenue that most dont. So, yeah, no regrets.Redemption is a weird term, he continues, but I dont think thats really what this record is. I see it as a different chapter. The best way I can sum it up is that, succeed or fail, Im going to fall on my own sword which is nerve-racking as hell, but its also super-exciting, and I wouldnt have it any other way. It may sound like lip service to say it, but I really do love this record, and if I loved it any less, I dont know that Id be putting it out. Im treating this record like this is it. Every album from here on out could be the last one, so Id better swing for the fences, and thats what we did on this one.

Description:

Almost born on the airplane from Columbus, Ohio, where his family lived, to Philadelphia, because his mom, a native of Philly, only trusted one doctor. Then the infant Edelman was flown right back to Columbus. "I was a very serious kid, and I think that's why. That's a lot of stress for a baby." His best friend in Columbus was a weeping willow tree. From there Paul's family moved to the north shore of Long Island, one of the natural habitats to the privileged dirtbag." There was a lot of money in that town, we stood out like sore thumbs." His family was always musical. Paul's uncle narrowly avoided success when he refused to sell one of his songs to Joe Cocker." Everyone in the family had talent, my mom had a beautiful voice."Paul spent a year at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh before settling into Philly. Paul spent years hosting open mics all through town, meeting folks and drawing influence from his peers. " My strongest asset is the ability to surround myself with people that are better than me." Eventually, Paul began connecting with some serious players with real ambition and talent. Paul found himself being a sought after player in town. "One of my first bandmates insists that I invented the term Grunge as a musical genre." He learned how to give other songwriters what their songs needed, and in so doing, was learning how to craft his own music with unique vision.Paul was a Boxcar, a Butcher Holler Boy and lead guitar for Naked Omaha, three of the hottest tickets in town, simultaneously. It was no surprise then when Paul broke out on his own with the Jangling Sparrows, he was selling out the World Cafe and sharing bills with James McMurtry, Robert Earl Keen and Langhorn Slim.Tough and tender, from a holler to a whisper. from timeless, original, Soul, Folk and Country to ferocious twang rock.Paul has also shared stages with: The Drive By Truckers, Neko Case, Scott Miller, Big Sandy and his Flyrite Boys, Slim Cessna, Marah, The Bottlerockets, The Sadies, and if you include stage crashing, Sarah Mclaughlin, Chrissie Hind, Cheryl Crow and the Dixie Chicks."Edelman makes short work of simple but effective lyrics, driving percussion, searing guitars and hooky melodies....Hints of Springsteen and Mellencamp are balanced with Edelmans original sound; an imperfect but comfortable voice and addictive narrative songs" Alli Marshal-Mountain Xpress

Description:
There are plenty of classes on how to write dynamic first sentences, opening chapters, and closing lines, but very few resources to help an author conquer the hardest part of a book: the middle. Encountering the depressing middle work is often referred to as "sag syndrome," and many would-be novelists abandon their projects altogether during this period. This 5-week class is designed to save you from that. During The Art of the Middle, writers with a novel-in-progress will work intensely to add new sections to their book each week by roughly drafting the middle of their novel. Each 2.5-hour weekly class will feature manuscript feedback on your work, critical reading, craft talk, lively discussion, and in-class writing time. You will also write outside of class. In six weeks, you can potentially add six more chapters to your novel. We will dive into short but specific examples of how authors use time (Graham Greene, John Banville), place (Jessie Burton, Patricia Highsmith), character (Donna Tartt, Paul Yoon), POV (Jeffrey Eugenides, Lauren Groff), and backstory (Michael Chabon,Stephen King) to buoy the dense midsections of their novels as well as maintain pace in plot. This will help class participants better understand how to write a novel in which the middle sustains momentum and narrative depth. For more information, including instructions for how to register by check, go to www.flatironwritersroom.com.  About the Instructor: Catherine Campbell is an award-nominated fiction writer and essayist. Her work appears or is forthcoming in The New York Times, The Millions, Kenyon Review, McSweeney’s, The Atlantic, Daily Muse, Arcadia, Drunken Boat, Ploughshares online, and elsewhere. She also ghostwrites articles for high-profile clients in national magazines such as Inc., Harvard Business Review, and Foundr Mag. Catherine earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Writing at UNC-Asheville and her MFA in Writing at Queens University. She was born on a little homestead in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, and lives in Asheville with her son Thaddeus and her partner, the writer Brandon Amico. Refund policy: The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may cancel your registration up until 5 p.m. on August 16, 2017, via Eventbrite for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.

Craig Brown Band

Watch
LinksOne of Detroit’s most beloved and powerful musicians has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a dynamite musical act together and called it Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album, The Lucky Ones Forget, was recorded almost live at Brown Rice Studio with Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive)—and is now available on Third Man Records. It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, fishing and vans—built upon the work of those daring punks of yore who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al). And it’s one of 2017’s must-hear records.

Quick rewind. For years, Craig Brown shared manic lead vocals and guitar squealies in the completely unhinged punk band, Terrible Twos (Urinal Cake Records). He’s gigged with King Tuff (Sub Pop) and shredded with local Detroit acts the Brownstown Gals and the Mahonies. He concurrently batters with New Jersey’s Liquor Store—a band so notorious, they sell their own brand of switchblades at the merch table, defying all sorts of local ordinances.

Whatever the band and whatever the avenue, Craig brings effortless musicianship and his damaged honkey-tonk howl to the mix. He has the ability to shred licks hotter and tastier than the Tres Hombres gatefold while breaking your heart with his crestfallen tunes. And despite being in bands for years, he’s just beginning to amaze with his eclectic and accomplished, beyond-pro-as-fuck guitar playing and songwriting abilities.

Live, the Craig Brown Band might look like a pile of dirty clothes but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound that will have even the gnarliest of disenfranchised young people looking up from their phones—for at least a few tunes, anyway. The good ol’ boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-jukebox classic rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of the Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie. Just the kind of band you scratch your head to in the beginning but rave to your friends about how much they fucking rule in the end.

With the increased focused on pollinator conservation in recent years, gardening and landscaping with native plants is becoming a significant point of emphasis. But what is all the “buzz”; about? In this workshop, we’ll discuss the incredible ability of native plants to function in your garden. From providing habitat and food for wildlife in urban and suburban settings, to establishing plant communities in a wide range of garden/landscape settings, native plants can bring great possibilities to any garden. We’ll draw on the ideas of Doug Tallamy, E.O. Wilson, and voices on the cutting edge of landscape design to give you renewed energy and perspective for the outdoor spaces around your home, and give you some easy, practical tips for your garden. $0 - 15 per person, sliding scale Nathan Buchanan started Wildbud Natives in Madison County, NC in 2015 with a focus on growing perennials and woody shrubs native to the Southern Appalachians and southeast. As a Mitchell County native, Nathan’s love of native plants was born on a Frasir Fir farm in the valley below Roan Mountain- one of Earth’s true botanic treasures.

Description:
You demanded we show this Tim Burton classic so now... "IT'S SHOWTIME!" An incredible cast led by Michael Keaton's spectacular performance makes this movie one of the most original, funniest and weirdest comedies ever. We know our audience will be dancing in their seats during the dinner party scene! September is 80's Movie Month at Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. We're showing four unique 80's movie classics and creating a brand new beer for each movie. We let the public vote on the films and name the new beers via our social media sites. We'll do it again, so find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to vote next time. THE NEW BEER WE CREATED FOR THIS FILM IS... a passionfruit & peach double IPA with vanilla and milk sugar that will be released at our locations on September 28th. Watch this fantastic film in Asheville's original dine-in theater. There are tables in front of our big, cushy theater seats. Order dinner from our huge diverse menu (vegan options!), and enjoy this rare cinematic experience with 140+ other fans of this film. Also, enjoy a huge selection some of the best local beer in WNC! OUR SPECIAL SCREENINGS ALWAYS SELL OUT SO BUY TICKETS NOW! CONTENT GUIDE: Rated PG-13 for language, violence and scary images. FAQs What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking in front of the building, on each side, and also in a big parking lot behind the building. All parking is free. Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. on Merrimon Avenue is very easy to find, and only a few minutes from I-26, I-240 and Downtown. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions. Please do not call our location as the staff who answers will likely not be able to know the answer.  Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? After you purchase your ticket we will have your name on a list. Please check in at the ticket counter AT LEAST 15 MINUTES before showtime. We strongly suggest you have a printed copy of your ticket or purchase confirmation OR you can show us the email purchase confirmation on your phone.  Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends? Yes, just make sure they check in with whatever name the tickets were purchased under.
