Genre: Roots Rock ReggaeTickets: adv. $13 / dos. $15Show: 8PM (Doors: 7PM)Ages: 21+ Akae Beka One of life’s chief lessons is the consistency of change. The Earth, once conceived flat, is now thought to be round. The Book of Enoch, Noah’s great-grandfather, was obscured for generations until three copies were brought out of Ethiopia by a prominent European explorer. Events like these have triggered paradigm shifts in the evolution of human thinking, yet the same principle applies to individual growth as well. Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. Following a quarter of a century as lead singer and co-founder for the legendary, St. Croix-based band, Midnite, Vaughn Benjamin was inspired to intensify his light when life situations led him to revisit the Book of Enoch. He then realized his preparedness to answer the calling of a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same. Much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, his personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in his newly declared name. Vaughn and his brother Ron Benjamin, sons of Antiguan music legend Ronnie Benjamin, Sr., together sowed the seeds of Midnite in 1989. During the mid-1990s, the band embarked on a 5-year sojourn in Washington DC, where they became area legends for their nightly 3-5 hour sets. Albums such as the debut Unpolished (1997), Ras Mek Peace (1999) and the seminal third release, Jubilees Of Zion (2001), collectively set the tone for what would become more than 60 albums  leading up to 2014. That year, their album Beauty For Ashes (a Midnite – I Grade collaboration) was named ‘Reggae Album of the Year’ by iTunes. Though his signature voice and edifying poetry graces an incredibly vast catalog of recordings, Akae Beka was unleashed by Fifth Son / VPAL Music in November 2015 with the debut album, Homage To The Land. The sophomore follow up, Portals, was released in collaboration with I Grade Records in April 2016. Livicated, released October 2016 on the Zion High Productions label, is the third and most recent project continuing Benjamin’s reputation for prolific output.  JahSayDo, the fourth release under Akae Beka, will be released on March 31, 2017.   Still he explores and introduces ancient, esoteric knowledge in ways applicable to present day realities. Akae Beka is accompanied by the following players of instruments: Peter Willock (drums and percussions), Lyndon ‘Ras L’ Williams (bass), Edmund Fieulleteau (guitar), Legrand Lee (guitar) and Suren Fenton (keyboards). Consisting mostly of former Midnite band members, the Akae Beka sound builds on a strong foundation of trance-inducing performance experiences across five continents and countless festivals such as Bonaroo, Outside Lands, Reggae on the River, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Summerjam, Rototom Sunsplash and Reggae Jam.  web: https://www.akaebeka.comvid: https://youtu.be/53puYBjvfdE?list=PLNJzOJwqkEXmbBu611jNVPUUgvYst1OSk Dub Kartel It more or less took an act of Jah to bring the Dub Kartel together. On January 12, 2010 a devastating earthquake struck in Haiti. After the Haiti earthquake a group of allstar Asheville reggae and ska musicians decided to do a fund raiser benefit for Haitian relief. Bringing together Agent Ishi (Strut), Coleslaw (Gnomebirds), Mike W. (Shining Rock, Natural Healing), Jeremy S.(Natural Healing), Tablesaw (Shining Rock, Cosmic Wind ) Horn players Courtney Hall, Sean Singer and JP Furnas(Empire Strikes Brass/Common Foundation), from this initial benefit show the seeds for Dub Kartel were sown. Dub Kartel pays tribute to the golden era of Jamacian music. Drawing on the tradion of Studio One, Treasure Isle and Dub luminaries like King Tubby and Scientist, DK brings a classic roots tradition into the modern era. music: http://soundcloud.com/dub-kartel

Description:

Ministry’s Al Joursengen, the acclaimed pioneer of industrial music, doesn’t muck around, doesn’t sugar-coat, doesn’t pull punches.  He’s highly opinionated, exceptionally well read and articulate on subjects ranging from politics to alien conspiracies to American history to his beloved Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls/White Sox/Bears.  He is an avid follower of NASA scientist David S. McKay, ancient civilizations scholar Zecharia Sitchin, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Scottish writer/archaeologist/scientist Graham Hancock.  During a layover at the Las Vegas airport this past summer, Jourgensen spotted U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff, introduced himself, and took full advantage of the encounter to let the Congressman know of his views on tax reform and the possible perils of redistribution of wealth, the current obstruction of the “Russia-gate” investigation by the House Intelligence Committee lead by Republican Chair Devin Nunes, and to inquire about the status of the possible impeachment of the President, on not only obstruction and collusion charges, but for treason.

You see, Al Jourgensen is angry, really angry about what’s going on in America – sexual abuse and the disrespect of women in our society, the waning respect for the U.S. Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of the our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House. Yeah, Al is angry, and that takes us straight to Ministry’s upcoming album AmeriKKKant.

Before all of that, the industrial machine that is Ministry has manufactured immense amounts of sound during its 30+ years of musical artistry. Initially coming into existence in 1981, Ministry was to be the lifetime passion project of front runner and founder Al Jourgensen. Often associated with ideas and imagery that are easily recognized today, in part because of Jourgensen’s insanely dreaded hair, pitch black attire, vampiric glasses, and exquisite top hat, the band has become incredibly symbolic. But like any creature cursed with the gift of creativity, “Uncle Al” has shed his skin several times over the decades. The development of Ministry and all of Al Jourgensen projects has been purely organic, which is a huge reason why the masses following his projects are so vast.

Often referred to as one of the founders of Industrial Music, the true outlook of Ministry as well as Jourgensen’s other projects, is far more fluid than just one specific genre. Surgical Meth MachineRevolting Cocks, and anything Al “Fucking” Jourgensen has produced all explore different realms of sound and thought.

In the year 1981 in Chicago Illinois, Ministry was initially born. With an original line up of Al Jourgensen doing lead vocals, guitar, programming and overall production, Stephen George on drums, Robert Roberts on keyboards and backing vocals, and John Davis also on keyboards and backing vocals. New sounds were constantly being developed in the 80’s especially as technology improved. At first the band had a very catchy, synth-pop sound. They began by releasing four 12” singles on Wax Track! Records starting in 1981, and released their first LP “With Sympathy” in 1983 via Arista Records.

As time progressed however, so did Ministry, and they quickly developed a harsher, and even more stylized industrial sound that they soon became infamous for. In the mid to late 80’s the band gained a progressively greater following as it released albums Twitch (1986),  The Land of Rape and Honey (1988), and The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste (1989). The darker, heavier sound that Ministry had developed into was often a direct reflection upon modern concepts, society, and politics. It was also during this time that Al Jourgensen himself reached one of his many peaks of creativity and branched off into what would be one of his many side-projects: Revolting Cocks. He also began producing a vast amount of other music by artists similar to his realm in one way or another such as Nivek Ogre/Skinny Puppy, The Reverend Horton Heat, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, Cheap Trick and Red Hot Chili Peppers. With the release of Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and The Way to Suck Eggs (1992), Ministry hit an all time high in the mainstream musical realm and even received a Grammy nomination. Filth Pig was released in 1994 and by then Ministry had not only grown a solid fanbase, but a solid reputation as well.

Famous for a hellaciously unique talent and sound, pure heinous insanity while on tour, and endless energy filled performances at countless festivals, Ministry had developed a cult following and would go on to release several more records throughout the years before eventually taking a hiatus. On December 23rd, 2012 then guitarist Mike Scaccia suffered a heart attack and passed away. It was not long after this that Jourgensen took what was to be an indefinite leave from doing anything Ministry related as he could not bare to continue without Scaccia. It wasn’t until recently that Jourgensen decided that if the circumstances were right, he would consider reawakening Ministry to release something new to the world.

Now, in 2017 Ministry has reunited, revamped its line-up, signed to Nuclear Blast Records, recently returned from a full world tour, and is now preparing to release their 14th studio album, AmeriKKKant, on March 9th 2018. Society and Politics have taken a turn for the insane and frightening in the United States and across the globe, leaving much inspiration and frustration for Ministry to draw from. Jourgensen remembers his shock while witnessing everyone and everything around him during the recent election process, and awoke on the morning of November 9th 2016 proclaiming: “We are making a fuckin’ album – right now.”

AmeriKKKant, like all Ministry projects, is an organic reflection of not just the band’s talent and sounds, but of the society in which we all live and breathe. Jourgensen says “I’ve spoken my piece on the societal conditions that would elect such a blithering idiot. It’s not an anti-Trump album, it’s like a- ‘did you pay attention in School? Does anybody have any intellectual curiosity anymore?’- album. [It’s] basically just holding up a mirror to ourselves and saying: ‘Look at this, is this what you really want to be?’”

With a new line up, incredibly full sound, and some might say a return to the roots of Ministry, the band is prepared to release a record that is socially relevant and sonically effective. Fans can look forward to a hearty future for not just Ministry, but Surgical Meth Machine, and Revolting Cocks as well. There is simply too much insanity in this world for Jourgensen not to speak his mind and keep our senses alive with his vast array of decibels and visuals: “I’m afraid for the stupidity of not embracing nonsense. I think nonsense is a great escape from the rigors of being in life’s hamster wheel.”

Worthwhile Sounds Presents: Andrew Marlin (of Mandolin Orange) with Josh Oliver WHEN: Tuesday December 11, 2018 WHERE: Ambrose West 312 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 DOORS: 7pm SHOW: 8pm SEATING: Seated Show TICKETS: $15 ADV / $17 DOS / $22 VIP (Guaranteed 1st 3 Rows) Andrew Marlin You may be familiar with Andrew from his involvement with Chapel Hill, NC duo Mandolin Orange. As the songwriter for the band, Andrew has become known as a gifted lyricist, producing powerful yet subtle, thoughtfully crafted songs. With Mandolin Orange, Andrew has toured the world, gracing famous stages including the Ryman Auditorium, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Newport Folk Festival, to name just a few. Buried In a Cape, Andrew’s first solo project, was released September 14, 2018. The album is a collection of his instrumental work. He wrote the songs on and off the road, and the recording session was scheduled on a whim at the Butcher Shoppe in Nashville, TN with Eli West (guitar, banjo), Christian Sedelmyer (fiddle), and Clint Mullican (bass). The compositions highlight Andrew's skills as an instrumentalist, while showcasing that his writing skills are not confined to poignant lyricism. With Buried In a Cape, Andrew follows in the footsteps of his previous accolades. The Mandolin Cafe said "Marlin joins his heroes as a mandolinist of note, and a talent for the ages," while Red Line Roots praised the album saying "Buried In a Cape is (in my opinion) the best record to be released in 2018. For those of you who are already fans of instrumental music, this will be your go to for years to come. For those who are not fans of instrumental music, listen to this album and then I’ll say ‘welcome to the club'." For these shows, Andrew will be joined by his Buried In A Cape recording band (Christian Sedelmyer, Eli West, and Clint Mullican). This cast of players have history with a list of roots music luminaries including Jerry Douglas, Bill Frisell, and Tim O’ Brien alongside their acclaimed solo projects. http://www.andrewmarlin.com

Progressive Crust band from Salt Lake City, UtahAll heavy/aggressive music comes from the same place. The biggest distinction that should be made between bands of this type shouldn't be by (sub) genrefication, but simply by how authentically and effectively they convey what they're trying to convey. Hopefully the sounds we make and the way we operate makes that point clearer than words can, but in case they don't, here are the words. This is where we are coming from, forever have, and forever will.Sam Richards - BASSMike Mason - GUITARCasey Hansen - DRUMSAnthony Lucero - VOCALS

Worthwhile Sounds Presents:  "An Evening with Jill Andrews: A Night of Original and Holiday Favorites" WHERE: Ambrose West, 312 Haywood Road, 28806WHEN: Thursday December 13, 2018DOORS: 7pm | SHOW: 8pmGENRE: Indie Folk / AmericanaAGES: All Ages TICKETS: $15 adv. / $18 d.o.s. / $20 VIP (guaranteed seat in 1st 3 rows)SEATING: seated general admission Watch a Video Jill Andrews On her last solo record, The War Inside, Jill Andrews shines a light on her own struggles and successes, tying the songs together with a new sound that mixes her folk background with a wider set of influences. “When I set out to make this album," she explained, "I wanted it to feel like me -- but me moving, me progressing. “As such, The War Inside reached into the pop and indie rock world, while still tipping its hat to Andrews' Appalachian, East Tennessee roots. Longtime friend Seth Avett even made an appearance, singing a duet with Andrews on "I'm so in Love with You." Andrews kicked off her songwriting career as co-founder of The Everybodyfields, a band whose mix of Southern genres — folk, country, bluegrass — and male-female vocals helped pave the way for future groups like The Civil Wars. It earned The Everybodyfields a wide fanbase too, as well as appearances at Bonnaroo, The Kennedy Center, and a cross-country tour with The Avett Brothers. After three albums, Andrews left the band and launched a solo career, starting with a self-titled EP and a full-length record, The Mirror, which built something bigger and broader on top of her Americana roots. Andrews also signed a publishing deal during this time, and began landing songs in multiple TV shows and movies, including Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife, Nashville, American Idol, Hart of Dixie, and Me, Him, Her (2015), among others. Of late, Andrews has been writing and recording with fellow Nashville songwriter Peter Groenwald under the moniker Hush Kids. Their debut self-titled album comes out on September 21st. Andrews returned to the studio this fall to record her next solo album, due out in 2019.

CARRYING TEAR GAS, BILLY CLUBS, AND PLEXIGLASS SHIELDS WITH “PORTLAND POLICE” PRINTED UPON THEM, DOZENS OF RIOT POLICE MOVED PAST THE CROWDS GATHERING TO SEE RISING APPALACHIA PLAY. It was a warm evening in the fall of November 2016, and the sister-led folk band was performing to a sold-out audience at the Crystal Ballroom, blocks away from protests occurring in the capital city of Oregon. Somehow, despite the animosity and unrest in the streets, there was a palpable sense of joyful togetherness, community and celebration in the theater that night. In the middle of the set, as the band bent a hip-hop inspired anthem into an old gospel spiritual with the words “No more weeping and wailing,” the audience erupted in a long, raucous roar. The concert was offering not so much an escape from the drama outside, but an opening for a way through it.

Leah Song and Chloe Smith, founding sisters of Rising Appalachia, have long witnessed themselves – by both choice and coincidence – carrying harmony into settings of upheaval and discord. Soon after their eponymous release in 2006, the siblings moved to New Orleans to assist in rebuilding efforts following Katrina. There they gained not only a deeper sense of connection to the roots of American music, but also an abiding sense of purpose as musicians. The band, which has now grown to include musicians David Brown on upright bass and baritone guitar, and Biko Casini on world percussion, has settled into its stride and purpose through creating original music with a mission, rooted in the traditions of folk songs, storytelling, and grass roots activism. The band manages to meld traditions and genres the same way Leah and Chloe blend their voices; it’s casual, beguiling, and effortlessly singular.

As the name connotes, the band’s sound arises most directly from the old-time music traditions that were passed down from Leah and Chloe’s parents, who often took the young girls to fiddle camps and gatherings in the Appalachian Mountains. Their home was in a different setting altogether, though. It lay smack dab in the heart of urban Atlanta Georgia, a humble craftsman house where, on most afternoons, fiddle tunes and blues guitar still get played by their mother and father. The traditional melodies within can blend with the city’s other sounds: a passing car’s subwoofers shaking out deep drum and bass notes, and some accordion driven boleros from a soccer match down the road. It’s not hard, sitting on their porch, to understand where this band’s persuasive and powerful new genre of acoustic folk comes from – one that melds old-time music with a thick rhythm section, southern soul with West African instrumentation and an occasional Colombian love song thrown in. The diverse influences converge through the voices of Leah and Chloe, which go together as only two siblings’ can.

In addition to their original approach to their music, the band has embraced a similar independent spirit with their touring. Outside of many industry norms, they have built a significant, loyal following as evidenced by recent sold out shows across the U.S, Canada, Australia and throughout Europe. After years of performing in coffee shops and on the streets of New Orleans, Dublin, Florence and Stockholm, they have risen to grace stages such as Red Rocks, the Kennedy Center, the Vancouver Folk Festival, Urkult, Winnipeg Folk, Woodford and Envision festivals, Pickathon, Kate Wolf, among many others. In spite of a busy touring schedule, a manifesto known as the “Slow Music Movement” guides the band in deliberate and often anachronistic means of touring. In support of their last studio album, Wider Circles (2016), the band travelled the US by rail, and in then in 2017, they toured the gulf islands of British Columbia in a wooden sailboat named La Libertatia. Accompanied by a film crew and a hearty bunch of sailors, they played shows on farms across the islands in support of issues such as food justice, indigenous rights, and protecting clean water. The band routinely provides a platform for the causes local to the cities they play, and frequently incite their fans to gather with them in converting vacant or under-used lots into verdant urban orchards and gardens.

Both onstage and off, Rising Appalachia exudes a sense of rootedness, playful exploration, and inspired action. Their sound and message, such as revealed in the newest single, “Resilient,” suggest that voices and traditions, brought together through song, may be one of the saving graces to a world in distress. In a time when the fabric of community and culture often appear to be unraveling, their interweaving of music and mission, old traditions with new interpretations, creates an atmosphere of contagious hope and bliss.

Come sit in ceremony with us during this sacred time of year! We will be offering devotional music and guided healing meditation along with ceremonial cacao (hand made formula using Keith's Cacao from guatemala). There will be oportunities for heart sharing and connection within sacred space. You will learn about the practice of ceremony and cacao as sacred medicine as well as other tools to access the inner realms and create healing in your life! Reviews for Sacred Cacao: "The event I went to was amazing. This is something that I will always remember. I plan to go to another event. I was blown away by such beautiful voices and music. You will be surprised in the best way possible. I had a great feeling of release and healing. I had no idea that Cacao was sacred, which now gives me all the more reason to love chocolate! Come with an open heart and open mind to this ceremony. You are in for a treat!" Bethany Otten “Wow, where do I even start? Binah’s Cacao Ceremony was definitely the highlight of my trip. Before booking, I really had no idea what to expect but I knew I wanted to attend. And thank goodness I did! Binah’s studio is in a great location right on Wall St. Her energy is warm and welcoming. And her Cacao blends are so delicious. I couldn’t leave without purchasing a bag to bring back home with me! The ceremony itself was beautiful. It was sacred and connected and I left feeling calm, peaceful and empowered. Asheville is such a beautiful city because of people like Binah. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with her and the others in attendance!  If you have the chance to partake in a Cacao Ceremony with Binah, do it!” Emily Foran Please Note: This is a facilitated group healing ceremony. Please refrain from any other substances of plant medicines prior to the ceremony. For an enhanced experience fasting the day of is recommended, though not required, a light meal before hand is also a good idea, especially if you are sensitive. Please bring any instrument or song to share and your favorite mug for ceremony! ***No one turned away for lack of funds, there are 5 spots available at a sliding scale rate ($20-$40) so choose 'donation' for this option at check-out.

Genre: Folk/BluegrassTickets: *Limited Early Bird* // tier 1. $17 // tier 2. $20Show: 9PM (Doors: 8PM)Ages: 21+ Billy Strings Billy Strings plays hard and he lives hard, picking so fast and intensely that he’s known to break multiple strings per song, and basing the songs he writes on the hard lives he grew up around in the abandoned rural communities of America. His new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, taps into a deep vein of psychedelia in Americana, referencing everything from the Dead to Sturgill Simpson, but all underlaid by Billy’s undeniable virtuosity and his knowledge of the roots of American music. He’s one of the most beloved young bluegrass guitarists today within the bluegrass community, and his front porch in East Nashville is constantly filled up with Nashville’s best roots musicians just picking up a storm. The tricky part of making the new album, Turmoil & Tinfoil, was translating Billy Strings’ incendiary live show into the studio. Returning to his home state of Michigan, Billy enlisted acoustic roots wizard Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass) as producer, and centered the music around his new band, featuring Drew Matulich on mandolin with banjo prodigy Billy Failing and much-loved Nashville bassist Brad Tucker. Rich with special guests, Turmoil & Tinfoil shows off Billy’s East Nashville community of picking friends, among them Miss Tess, Molly Tuttle, John Mailander, Shad Cobb and Peter Madcat Ruth. Of special note is a virtuosic duet between Billy and bluegrass guitarist Bryan Sutton on “Salty Sheep” that shows the speed, precision, and creative craftsmanship of bluegrass when it’s done right.web: https://billystrings.com/vid: https://youtu.be/sY29AOp1Wi0
