Stopping down in the River Arts District to see what new frontiers of debauchery the Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular will boldly cross has become an annual tradition for many Ashevillians. The show, a holiday sketch comedy romp that delights audiences with completely new material each year, has sold out nearly every performance for the past six years. This will be the second year the delightfully drunken Bernsteins will be in Magnetic 375, on Depot Street, the home of the The Magnetic Theatre. While the cast remains unchanged for the third straight year, the show will see a new director at the helm for the first time since 2012. Jeff Catanese, well-known to Asheville audiences from work with Attic Salt Theatre Company as well as Asheville Community Theatre, is directing the Bernstein crew this season.  “All of the Bernsteins have been excited about the new energy Jeff brings to the team,” said the show’s producer Chall Gray. “Sex-crazed Judy Bernstein complimented both his stamina and smooth pectorals, and stoner Jimbo Bernstein described his lung capacity as ‘whoa.’ ” The Bernsteins’ R-rated screwball skewering of various holiday traditions and tropes was described by Tony Kiss of Asheville Scene as “The holiday show to see in Asheville.” The show stars a number of Asheville’s best-known actors, including Darren Marshall and Tracey Johnston-Crum (who was voted best actress in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC for the fourth straight year this summer). The Bernsteins will bring their signature mix of skits, songs, bong hits, dance numbers, and excessive drinking to Magnetic 375 for a limited run (which will, as with all Bernstein Spectaculars, be intended for mature audiences only). “We look forward to connecting with the cockles of the hearts of our fans this holiday season,” Gray said. The show is expected to sell out, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. The Magnetic Theatre, founded in 2009, has been a leading theatre in WNC since its formation, and the annual Bernstein Christmas Spectacular has become the most anticipated annual theatre event in WNC--don’t miss this essential element of the holidays in Asheville! Directed by Jeff Catanese. Scenic Design by Kehren Barbour. Sound Design by Tommy Calloway. Choreography and Costumes by Elizabeth Evans. Props by Jim Julien. Stage Management by Deanna Braine. Starring Tracey Johnston-Crum, Darren Marshall, Glenn Reed, Erik Moellering, & Kirby Gibson. Written by Lucia Del Vecchio, Genevieve Packer, Peter Lundblad and Jim Julien. Produced by Chall Gray. The 45th Annual Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular will be performed at Magnetic 375, located at 375 Depot St, in the River Arts District of Asheville, December 1-3, 8-10, 15-17 and 21-23, showtimes 7:30 p.m. nightly, and 10:00 p.m. late shows December 10 and 17.

Psymbionic and CloZee head out on a massive U.S tour! Catch one of the premier stops at New Mountain Asheville December 8th!  Cut Rugs and illanthropy bring their unique sound as local support!  Psymbionic:  Cresting the modern wave of electronic producers, Psymbionic creates aural experiences that explore the range of multi-tempo Bass Music within an influential and dynamic culture. With an ear for situational relevance, Psymbionic enjoys turning non-traditional sound design and infectious rhythms into dancefloor heat, while also maintaining his history in the downtempo, emotive side of the electronic sound. John Burcham has been moving bodies and turning heads as Psymbionic for several years in all corners of the USA, playing with acts such as Bassnectar, STS9, Big Gigantic, ill.Gates, Excision, EOTO, and Tipper. His passion and innovation in the music world are showcased through album releases on Muti Music and MalLabel, as well as in his role as label manager for the popular Electronic imprint Gravitas Recordings. In a live show context, Psymbionic confronts mixes that are limited to the scope of the build and release, avoiding an industry epidemic of drop-monotony that overpowers the flow of music. Burcham seeks to prove that there are more powerful influences in moving a crowd than simple tension, providing an interwoven dynamic that relies on the strength of his blend, rather than the sole force or familiarity of the apex. Psymbionic's theory of music is a journey that doesn't visit the same place twice, building excitement for what's next not because you can anticipate it, but because you've never been there before. CloZee: Hailing from Toulouse, CloZee is Chloé, a young music producer who seamlessly combines technical precision with a wild imagination. An accomplished instrumentalist, she began playing the classical guitar at 11. Influenced by edIT, Bonobo, The Widdler and Amon Tobin, she started producing electronic music at the age of 16.Winner of the 2014 'Best International Newcomer' at the UK Glitch-Hop Award, and runner up of multiple remix contests, she was spotted by respected labels such as Gravitas Recordings, Glitch Hop Community, Otodayo Records, Adapted Records, Digital Whomp…In 2015, she launched the electro Orchestral Hip Hop project CloZinger, with a french MPC master Scarfinger.

"Took a whole lot of miles to know what I know now," sings Will Hoge on "Growing Up Around Here," the opening track off of his tenth studio album, Small Town Dreams. "I'm kinda proud of growing up around here."It's been a whole lot of miles, indeed: miles on the road, driving the bus himself from venue to venue since the nineties; miles to and from Nashville writing rooms, where he's spent hours penning songs some for him, some for others; miles exploring lands outside of his native Franklin, Tennessee, chasing the spirits of his musical heroes. Roads meet, roads split, roads led to home.Hoge has spent countless years and miles on the road, but hes just recently recorded the magic fans love, on Solo & Live December 2015 released in March 2016. Known for his connection with audiences as well as his impressive vocal ability, he recorded the album in December of last year. The collection captures the full experience of Hoges show an event thats never predictable. Hoges unique connection with his fans lies in his ability to stir up somber, acoustic moments in one turn and then spring a hard-rocking, plugged-in number the next. "The magic happens in the unsafe moments," he says. The album showcases songs from Small Town Dreams as well as older entries from his catalog, including crowd favorites Through Missing You, Jesus Came to Tennessee and When I get My Wings, among others.An extremely prolific songwriter with ten albums under his belt and countless songs written for others (including a Grammy nomination), Never fitting particularly neatly into a genre box, he's always just made the music that moved him.Keeping with the recurring theme of days and nights spent on the road, Hoge recently crossed the pond and took his live show to Europe, touring through Scotland and England in the fall of 2015 and again in early 2016, traveling to Spain, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands. The tour was in support of Small Town Dreams, which Hoge teamed up with Marshall Altman on. The collection of songs paints a vivid snapshot of the American experience.Throughout everything he does, whether in his live shows or while creating a new album one thing remains central: the stories. Hoges ability to tell stories is part of what has made him a vital force in fan's lives who have followed him across the country and seen countless shows his songs speak to the reality of all our experiences, delivered in a way that is honest, true and ever changing.Whatever the tale may be, both old and new fans alike know one thing for certain Hoges next release will be a chapter filled with an intriguing story. Stay tuned.

Description:
California has enjoyed a string of high quality vintages for the past four years. Vintages 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 were all great with warm, dry, and sunny conditions providing ideal conditions for grapes to ripen fully. The resulting wines are some of the best the state has ever produced, and we are going to let you taste exactly what we're talking about. We'll start with one of the state's top 2015 Sauvignon Blancs before we pour you a splash of one of the great Napa Cabernet values of the 2012 vintage. To finish, you'll get to try the new Pinot Noir from Joe Wagner (Belle Glos, formerly of Meiomi). Yep, we're pouring this big Pinot after the Cabernet -- stop by and you'll understand why! Can't make it by, but want to place an order? Just email us at [email protected] The Wines Save big on all of the tasting wines! Mix any 3 of them and save 10%, mix any 6 and save 15%, or mix any 12 and save 20%! 1. 2015 Smith Story Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc (Sonoma County, California) – Alison Smith and Eric Story are the husband and wife team behind Smith Story Wine Cellars, and we firmly believe that they make one of the best Sauvignon Blancs in the state. Zesty, crunchy, and laced with complex mineral notes, this is California Sauvignon Blanc meets Sancerre. Tasting Price: $17.99 on mixed 3-packs | $16.99 in mixed six packs | $15.99 in mixed cases 2. 2012 Hesperian "Anatomy #1" Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley, California) - Bordeaux-born Phillipe Langner crafts this incredible value Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. His Bordeaux heritage is truly showcased in this classy, balanced, and refined Cab. With medium bodied notes of crisp currant, dark cherry, cigar tobacco, pepper and mint, it honestly reminds us of some of the Napa classics like Montelena, BV, and others. Tasting Price: $22.49 on mixed 3-packs | $21.24 on mixed 6-packs | $19.99 on mixed cases 3. 2015 Boen Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley, California) - Joe Wagner's style of Pinot Noir isn't shy! He was the man behind Meiomi for years, but he sold that brand a couple of years ago for over $300 million! He's reinvested his profit into a couple of new projects, and Boen is his newest Pinot Noir creation. Rich, fleshy, flashy, and flamboyant, this is Pinot Noir for Cab or Syrah drinkers. Tasting Price: $24.29 on mixed 3-packs | $22.94 on mixed 6-packs | $19.99 on mixed cases

Stopping down in the River Arts District to see what new frontiers of debauchery the Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular will boldly cross has become an annual tradition for many Ashevillians. The show, a holiday sketch comedy romp that delights audiences with completely new material each year, has sold out nearly every performance for the past six years. This will be the second year the delightfully drunken Bernsteins will be in Magnetic 375, on Depot Street, the home of the The Magnetic Theatre. While the cast remains unchanged for the third straight year, the show will see a new director at the helm for the first time since 2012. Jeff Catanese, well-known to Asheville audiences from work with Attic Salt Theatre Company as well as Asheville Community Theatre, is directing the Bernstein crew this season.  “All of the Bernsteins have been excited about the new energy Jeff brings to the team,” said the show’s producer Chall Gray. “Sex-crazed Judy Bernstein complimented both his stamina and smooth pectorals, and stoner Jimbo Bernstein described his lung capacity as ‘whoa.’ ” The Bernsteins’ R-rated screwball skewering of various holiday traditions and tropes was described by Tony Kiss of Asheville Scene as “The holiday show to see in Asheville.” The show stars a number of Asheville’s best-known actors, including Darren Marshall and Tracey Johnston-Crum (who was voted best actress in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC for the fourth straight year this summer). The Bernsteins will bring their signature mix of skits, songs, bong hits, dance numbers, and excessive drinking to Magnetic 375 for a limited run (which will, as with all Bernstein Spectaculars, be intended for mature audiences only). “We look forward to connecting with the cockles of the hearts of our fans this holiday season,” Gray said. The show is expected to sell out, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. The Magnetic Theatre, founded in 2009, has been a leading theatre in WNC since its formation, and the annual Bernstein Christmas Spectacular has become the most anticipated annual theatre event in WNC--don’t miss this essential element of the holidays in Asheville! Directed by Jeff Catanese. Scenic Design by Kehren Barbour. Sound Design by Tommy Calloway. Choreography and Costumes by Elizabeth Evans. Props by Jim Julien. Stage Management by Deanna Braine. Starring Tracey Johnston-Crum, Darren Marshall, Glenn Reed, Erik Moellering, & Kirby Gibson. Written by Lucia Del Vecchio, Genevieve Packer, Peter Lundblad and Jim Julien. Produced by Chall Gray. The 45th Annual Bernstein Family Christmas Spectacular will be performed at Magnetic 375, located at 375 Depot St, in the River Arts District of Asheville, December 1-3, 8-10, 15-17 and 21-23, showtimes 7:30 p.m. nightly, and 10:00 p.m. late shows December 10 and 17.

with Sinners and Saints, Chelsea Lynn Labate
Megan Jean and the KFB, or Klay Family Band, arrange a demented blend of americana, punk, dance, and the avant-garde that they've taken to describing as, "a metal band, if it was 1927."Inventive percussion, electrified banjo, and a voice like the Devil Herself have earned Megan Jean and the KFB a dedicated following all over the East Coast. Calling the road home on a "never-ending tour," this transient married duo has taken their nomadic musical lifestyle and transformed it into a kind of Voodoo that unites scenes, fans, and musical styles. This is a band that lives to perform, and is fueled by sheer guts and know how.
