Indivisible Asheville/WNC will host a town hall meeting for congressional candidates for Districts 10 and 11 at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Lord Auditorium in Pack Library at 67 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville. All are welcome to attend this free event. All candidates for congress in Districts 10 and 11 have been invited to participate: David Wilson Brown (D-10) and Patrick McHenry (R-10), and Phillip Price (D-11) and Mark Meadows (R-11). “We had hoped this event would be a debate, so the voters from each District would have a chance to hear both the Republican and Democratic candidates, and fully understand the differences in political philosophies,” said Cindy McGrayne of Indivisible Asheville/WNC. “But neither of the incumbent candidates, Mark Meadows or Patrick McHenry, accepted our invitation.” Rep. Patrick McHenry declined to participate. Staff for Rep. Mark Meadows stated that he would only participate in one debate during the campaign season, which was to be held at Western Carolina University sometime in October, although challenger Phillip Price stated that he has not received an invitation or any notice of such a debate. "We are disappointed that Meadows and McHenry have refused this opportunity to engage with their constituents," McGrayne said. “In their absence, we will do our best to give a fair summary of each congressman's record on the topics to be addressed." Indivisible Asheville/WNC will host an additional town hall featuring area candidates for NC Senate and House at 6 p.m. on October 23, 2018 at the Wesley Grant Sr. Southside Center in Asheville. Indivisible Asheville/WNC is a non-partisan action group dedicated to defending Democracy with informed community action in WNC.

Carrie is a singer/songwriter/pianist whose style has a big range - Celtic, blues, folk, rock, and a whole bunch of other styles she couldn't possibly categorize (as she has no idea what they are). She writes strong melodies and wise lyrics. Her ballads break your heart in the best way, and her blues-y wit makes creates a wry smile. Carrie, an exceptional children's teacher in Transylvania County, has lived in WNC for 15 years, and has been a working musician most of that time. She released her first full-length album, Miles and Miles, in fall 2017. The project was produced by Chris Rosser of Free Planet Radio. Her EP, Carolina Blonde, produced by the late Terry Wetton, was released in 2014. She performs regularly in WNC venues, and collaborates with many regional musicians onstage and in the studio. An avid hiker when not gigging, Carrie loves the mountains and the artistic community here. She is grateful to share her music and connect with her audiences.

September is 90's Movie Month at Asheville Pizza & Brewing's movie theater in North Asheville.  Every Thursday during September a different classic movie from the 1990s.  It's the 20th Anniversary for one of the most wild, hilarious and psychedelic movies of all time, FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS.  It's a rare treat to experience this visually stunning movie on the big screen. Based off of true events from the novel by the legendary writer/journalist Hunter S. Thompson, the story recounts Thompson's setting off on an initially assigned journey with journalistic purpose which turns out to be an exploration of the Las Vegas setting under the effect of psychoactive substances. Directed and co-written by the brilliant Terry Gilliam (Monty Python, Brazil, Twelve Monkeys), it features perhaps the best performances ever by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro plus appearances by some of the best actors of the 1990s. TICKETS:   Tickets are only $3.00, and can also be purchased at the Main Bar of our 675 Merrimon Avenue location. WE ARE EXPECTING THIS SHOW TO SELL OUT, SO GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY! MOVIE SYNOPSIS:   Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) drive a red convertible across the Mojave desert to Las Vegas with a suitcase full of drugs to cover a motorcycle race. As their consumption of drugs increases at an alarming rate, the stoned duo turn Las Vegas upside down and lose their grip with reality. CONTENT GUIDELINE:  Rated R for pervasive extreme drug use and related bizarre behavior, strong language, and brief nudity. 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 from the third oldest brewery in WNC! 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 on Merrimon Avenue is very easy to find. Only five minutes from I-26, I-240 and Downtown. Should I arrive early? ABSOLUTELY!!!  We strongly suggest you arrive at least 30 minutes early so you can order and get settled into your seat before the movie starts. Can I order food and beverages inside the theater? Yes!  You can order anything from the diverse menu of Asheville Pizza & Brewing and drink any of Asheville Brewing Company's delicious beers!  The menu has pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, vegan options and more!  The full menu can be found on our website.   Is there any pre-show entertainment? Doors usually open one hour prior to the showtime with a pre-show collection of unique and funny videos playing before the movie begins. Regulars to our theater always arrive extra early to enjoy our pre-show which changes with each movie. 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? It isn't necessary.  After you purchase your ticket we will have your name on a list when you arrive, so we really only need the name the tickets were purchased with.  You can also show us the email purchase confirmation on your phone, but you can bring in a printed ticket if you prefer.  Please check in at the ticket counter at least 20 minutes before showtime to find a good seat. We expect a sellout.  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.

Description:

Hailing from the musical mecca of Athens, Georgia and built on the idea that the sum is greater than the individual parts, Family And Friends has steadily gained a loyal following with their spirited live performances and good music, good people mantra since releasing their 2015 EP XOXO. Their new highly anticipated album Felix Culpa, produced by Chicago-turned-L.A. auteur Brad Wood and due out June 8th, is nothing less than an epic coming-of-age tale with a massive sound that amplifies their former indie-folk roots onto a technicolor, Cinemascope screen.Whereas Family And Friends first EP focused heavily on love, and the second on nostalgia, Felix Culpa is caught somewhere between adolescence and adulthood and finds Family And Friends at a pivotal moment in their maturation both as artists and individuals. With a classic coming-of-age narrative, the albums theme focuses on a precipice of lifes journey, as we begin the quest for existential meaning and come to terms with the fact that people, relationships, and seemingly universal truths are more complicated than we perhaps realize. Balancing scintillating textures with bright guitars and beautiful vocal harmonies, Family And Friends sharply observant lyrics are cloaked in the bands contagiously upbeat instrumentation, leaving the listener with a sense of hope by albums end.Family And Friends collaborative concept extends well beyond the members of the band. With a live show that begs audiences to feel as much a part of the experience as the musicians onstage, their fiery performances have been turning casual viewers into full-on believers all over the southeast. The bands infectious, dynamic anthems become even more intoxicating in a live setting, with epic builds that crash over the roar of two dueling drummers, who perform facing each other and feed off one anothers energy. A Family And Friends show is pure, unadulterated fun with a lightning bolt of enthusiasm and a familiarity that is immediately endearing and undeniably gratifying.Family And Friends includes Mike MacDonald (guitar, vocals), Casey Harper (vocals), David Tuna Fortuna (bass), Ryan Houchens (drums, vocals), Alejandro Rios (drums), and JP McKenzie (electric guitar). The forthcoming album title, which loosely translates to blessed mistake, illustrates the notion that while we may continue to search for some semblance of meaning, the fact that we are here at all deserves to be celebrated, and Family And Friends intends to do just that.

I am also a sucker for music that gets me moving. On its latest album I Love You Madly, Black Masala hits both of those targets. . . If you're a fan of energetic, uptempo music, this album is definitely for you.” – Examiner.comBrassy Washington DC-based outfit, Black Masala, is part of the new generation of go-anywhere brass bands. You can hear this sound all over the world now – from New Orleans (Hot 8) to Belgrade (Boban & Marko Markovic), Paris (Fanfarai) to Cotonou (Gangbe Brass Band), and right here on the east coast area as well (Red Baraat & No BS! Brass). A major party alert for this band – Black Masala puts on an amazing, high-energy live show!In 2015 Black Masala released their second studio album, I Love You Madly as well 3 volumes of remixes featuring DJ's from all around the world. I Love You Madly was well received and reached #2 on the CMJ World Chart and #4 on Canada's national Earshot radio chart. On their second album it is clear that Black Masala are having a lot of fun incorporating various musical influences into their go-anywhere Brass sound. Ranging from Gypsy punk, Balkan brass and New Orleans funk, to Bhangra and bounce, this is an album for the multicultural music listener. The heavy horns and danceable rhythms tie “I Love You Madly” together and create an album that can be played for a wide range of audiences.Whether they are performing live shows or releasing new music, Black Masala push the boundaries between genres and explore new musical frontiers. This unorthodox and highly creative approach is what makes the shows so much fun with a wild and unpredictable vibe for the audience."Black Masala is a first rate band who are among the growing numbers of groups who make fun, energetic world beat mash-ups that show a good deal of imagination." -- The Graham Album Review“If you haven’t seen them yet, DC’s Black Masala is one of the most exciting live acts anywhere in the USA right now. Playing a unique mix of punk rock, Balkan brass, Indian bhangra and New Orleans funk, this horn-driven (trumpet, trombone and sousaphone) septet is a guaranteed party-starter. . . This is a regional band that deserves to go national and international, one of the most exciting projects in our part of the world these days.” – Bill Lupoletti, WRIR Global A Go-Go“Black Masala is a D.C. outfit that has found success riding off of its own inventiveness. Experimenting with a flirtatious combination of gypsy punkiness and brass, the band can expertly churn an audience of awkward head-bobbers into a livened stew of aspirant dancers. Their big-band sound seems able to adapt to any venue; readily filling out the cavernous space of the 9:30 while simultaneously fitting to match the intimacy of Tropicalia. For them, no groove is off limits.” – WRGW Music Blog"Sure, having an album that can stand the test of time is important, but so is exhibiting that piece of work onstage. Black Masala is your gypsy carnival circus of music that knows no limits of genre. You are rocking out, grooving like you would to funk music, yet you feel like you may be at some ska gypsy punk show, and you become overwhelmed with their uncanny stage presence. Their music must be experienced in person to fully understand this band and that is what makes them so much fun. You won’t be served soft underhand pitches of predictable songs and setlist structure. Instead, you’ll probably find a Sousaphone standing next to you in the crowd while Kristen Long reaches deep into your soul with her powerful vocals." - Live Music Daily "D.C.’s rich history of producing great funk and soul while embracing our funkin’ future, which, if Black Masala is any indication, it looks pretty damn good."-Zeke Leeds - Brightest Young Things
