Don’t miss your final chance to see the Bernsteins and all their holiday shenanigans! The 10th Annual Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular will be the final year of the raucous holiday favorite, and it will be a year to remember! “We’re sad to see the Bernsteins go—even though it took us until last month to get all of the empty vodka bottles cleaned out of Judy Bernstein’s dressing room,” said The Magnetic Theatre’s Artistic Director, Katie Jones. The Bernsteins have thrilled and cracked up Asheville audiences with their antics for a decade now, and this show will be no exception. This wildly wicked show will feature some blast-from-the-past favorite scenes, as well as all-new antics for Bernstein-lovers! With an all-star cast of local acting talent, the show features Best of WNC Award Winner Tracey Johnston-Crum, well-known Lazoom personality Glenn Reed, Erik Moellering, Sarah Felmet and Darren Marshall, who has played both Santa Claus and Baby Jesus for all ten years of the Spectacular. Directed by Lucia Del Vecchio, the show is sure to be a rollicking comedy romp, that is most certainly NOT a family friendly event! The 10th Annual Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular runs December 5th-21st at The Magnetic Theatre, located at 375 Depot Street in the River Arts District. Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30pm, with two showings on Saturdays at 7:30pm and 10:00pm. Tickets are $28, plus a $3 ticketing fee. For more information, please visit www.themagnetictheatre.org. For questions, please contact Artistic Director Katie Jones: [email protected] or call 828-239-9250.

Genre: Rock n Roll Funky SoulTickets: adv. $12 / dos. $15Show: 10PM (Doors: 9PM)Ages: 21+ THE MAIN SQUEEZE From their origins as a jam/party band in Indiana, The Main Squeeze, has been weaving the veins of Rock, Funk, Blues, and R&B into modern song stylings. Now LA-based and with three albums under their belt (last one being 2017’s Without A Sound), festival appearances from KABOO to Bonnaroo, and features from Billboard and Rolling Stone, they are of turning over a new sonic leaf this year.  The Main Squeeze released their newest single, “Fancy Clothes” on January 18th. Following in the wake of the release of “It Ain’t Me” last October, these two singles mark the start of something new and fresh for the Indiana-to-Chicago-to-Los Angeles transplants. The singles play up the modern dance-pop vibes of Bruno Mars and Charlie Puth - while channeling the swag, grit and soulful sounds of 70s bands like The Rolling Stones and Sly and the Family Stone. Produced by Teddy Roxpin  “Fancy Clothes” is a tongue in cheek dance track that reflects the spotlighted LA culture in which The Main Squeeze lives. With a rich touring history including opening slots for The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, D.R.A.M., Mac Miller, Aloe Blacc, and Umphrey’s McGee, The Main Squeeze are launching into a new musical orbit with plans for a fourth LP in 2019. web: http://www.mainsqueezemusic.comvid: https://youtu.be/nSo76JiQrW8

Register at bit.ly/avlstrikedec! Hosted in conjunction with Asheville Greenworks and Community Roots. Walkouts @ 10 AM, Strike @ 11 AM. With the consequences of climate change becoming ever more clear and dire with each passing day, a new powerful wave of the climate movement has been swelling up over the last couple of years. Young people around the world have been rising up to defend our future, and have been going on strike – every week, all over the planet – for months. In the September Climate Strikes alone, 7.6 million people took to the streets with us. We, as a global society, are at a crossroads. We have a decision to make. Are we going to choose money or power, or are we going to choose the future? The September 20th strike was an invitation to everyone to choose us. Choose the kids, choose humanity, choose the future. Our movement isn't going anywhere. Now, we are preparing for the next wave of Climate Strikes on December 6th. We call on local, state, and federal leadership to take bold action and treat this like the Climate Emergency that it is. If not, we'll use the power of our vote. We must carry this energy to the 2020 elections, and beyond to ensure real, bold action is taken to address the climate crises. This is history in the making, and it’s time we take back the narrative to save our futures. Join us: bit.ly/avlstrikedec

Asheville Gallery of Art’s December show, "Big Art, Small Canvas,” features 23 member artists whose dynamic small works showcase the gallery’s diversity of styles and mediums. The show runs December 1-31 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, December 6, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited. “A small works show is a tapestry of the incredible talent of Asheville Gallery artists,” says Jane Molinelli, a member for six years. “When you walk in and see the collection for the show, you immediately see what we are as a gallery and strive to be as artists. We are as diverse as our art, from abstract to realism, from oils to acrylic, and pastels to watercolor. Yet, we all work together in a business model that inherently fosters both creativity and community.” Asheville Gallery of Art, a collective of local artists, is in its third decade as a vibrant contributor to our city’s flourishing art scene. Co-op members are selected through a jury process. In addition to pursuing their personal artistic goals, members come together to perform the many functions necessary to run a thriving art business. “We are a multi-talented, multi-tasking group of individuals on an incredible journey together. Being Asheville’s longest-established art gallery is a testament to all past and present members' hard work and dedication,” says Molinelli. The pieces for the show, as well as the work of all 31 gallery members, will be on display and for sale through the month of December. For further information about this show, contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

“You can tell when somebody is faking it,” says Cody Cannon, lead singer and guitarist of Whiskey Myers, “and you can tell when it’s real.” This kick-ass band has been steadily building a devoted following with its gritty authenticity, and with their self-titled fifth album, they’re poised to explode.

Each one of the releases from Whiskey Myers has been bigger and bigger — following their break-out third album, 2014’s Early Morning Shakes, their most recent record, Mud, climbed to No. 4 on Billboard’s country charts in 2016. And that was before the group was featured in Kevin Costner’s TV series Yellowstone in 2018 (not just on the soundtrack, but on screen, performing in a bar), which propelled the band’s entire catalogue into the Top 10 of the iTunes country chart.

But playing to larger and wilder crowds — including audiences of more than 100,000 at the Download Festivals in London and Paris — didn’t cause Whiskey Myers to change their approach this time around. “We just bring our songs to the table and make it sound like us,” says Cannon. “We never think about it. We just try to go in and write a good song, whether it’s country or rock and roll or blues.”

“There’s never a plan or the sense that we need to make a song sound a certain way,” adds guitarist John Jeffers. “A country song could end up a rocker or the other way around — it’s extremely organic, and that’s always been us as a band.”

The big change for Whiskey Myers was the decision by the group (which also includes Cody Tate on guitar, Jeff Hogg on drums, bassist Jamey Gleaves and Tony Kent playing keyboards and percussion) to produce the album themselves. GRAMMYwinner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Sturgill Simpson) helmed the band’s last two albums, but this time around, they felt ready to take the wheel.

“We loved a lot of things about our producers,” says Jeffers, “but it was time to be set free and do it ourselves — to take what we learned from them and put it all together, figure it out. I think it just made it more authentically us.”

“We didn’t know what to expect being on both sides of the glass, but we loved it,” says Cannon. “Everybody got along, and we really incorporated everybody’s ideas.”

Jeffers emphasizes how that sense of collaboration and experimentation really defined their whirlwind eighteen days of recording at the Sonic Ranch studio, outside of El Paso. “There’s never a right or wrong answer when it comes to ideas,” he says. “We would run every single idea from everyone — some work and some don’t, but we give them all a shot. And then there’s that magical moment when the whole band hears it, your eyes get a twinkle — ‘That’s it, that’s us!’ It’s usually a no-brainer.”

It should come as no surprise that at this point, the members of Whiskey Myers can communicate and create so cohesively. The band’s roots stretch back decades into the red dirt of East Texas, where Cannon, Jeffers and Tate first began playing together.

They earned a rabid local following on the strength of their 2008 debut album, Road Of Life, and then notched their first No. 1 on the Texas Music Charts with the 2011 follow-up Firewater.

With Early Morning Shakes, though, the rest of the world started to catch up to what Texas already knew. Esquire called them “the real damn deal,” while USA Today wrote that their music had “shades of Led Zeppelin and David Allen Coe.” They took their blistering live show across the U.S. and U.K. non-stop, sharing stages with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr. and Jamey Johnson and racking up more than 300 million streams of their songs.

The band draws as much inspiration from Nirvana as from Waylon Jennings, and Whiskey Myers bursts out of the gate with the raging “Die Rockin’,” followed by such bruisers as “Rolling Stone” and “Gasoline.” Over the course of fourteen tracks, though, songs expand, moods change and songs like “Bury My Bones” and “California to Carolina” explore different stories and emotions.

“You want an album to be like a rollercoaster,” says Jeffers. “Does it really take you for a ride, with ups and downs and some loops and sometimes you’re upside down?”

“Those first songs on the album were the first batch we recorded, and they were really rock and roll,” says Cannon. “That got the juices flowing. But an album should be like a whole work of art that moves, comes out strong, ends strong, flows in the middle — like a good show does.”

Whiskey Myers hasn’t dialed down their Southern Rock rowdiness, but these songs also reveal new maturity and changes in the lives of the band — both Jeffers and Cannon got married since the release of their last record. “There’s always pressure there,” says Jeffers about the challenges of maintaining a relationship and a relentless touring schedule, “‘Bury My Bones’ is about being home. I was on the road and just wanted to go home. It is on your mind, sometimes harder than others, and it shows in the songs. And then sometimes you’re just pissed off and you write a song called ‘Bitch!’”

“We’re growing up,” says Cannon, “and this is exactly the place we’re at, and it comes out in our songs, in our business, everything, We’re not as wild as we were — we’re not totally calm, but you see how your life changes. You always write about little sections of your life — you can write a happy song when you’re sad, but you tend to go to where you are — and I just think this album is happier, more upbeat, doesn’t have too many dreary songs on it.”

For this band of renegade brothers, the goal isn’t to fit into a format or try a new direction for its own sake, it’s to be true to the music they love — and with Whiskey Myers they continue pushing in all directions and sharpening their attack, whether country, rock,  blues, whatever — even adding the legendary McCrary Sisters’ gospel influence to the project on background vocals. “Everybody wants you to pick a genre, but we did this our whole career,” says Cody Cannon. “We like it all, so we’re gonna do it all. We’re better than we were at 20 years old — you try to hone your skills and get better, write better, play better. This is just how it came naturally, and it works better that way.”

On Sunday, December 8, at 6:30 pm, Trinity Episcopal Church will host a candlelit Labyrinth Walk in Tuton Hall. All are invited to take a short time away from the frenzy and busyness of the upcoming Christmas season to prayerfully participate in the season of Advent – the season of anticipation and waiting. If you have never walked a labyrinth before, or if you have walked many times, we invite you to experience this ancient spiritual practice as an opportunity to slow down and take a breath and spend some time in quiet reflection, looking expectantly to the coming of God’s light, Jesus, who shines in the darkness.
