KickStart Your Health  (4 classes series)   In a public health climate where 68% of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. Depending on one's perspective, the Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health classes are about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. For some people, it's the first time the idea of not restricting amounts of food, but rather choosing the right food, has been the guiding principle for losing weight and staying healthy. Lower cholesterol, better disease control, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood are some of the many benefits people experience on this diet. The Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health classes offer a chance to discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In the classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive setting. Featured Class Topics: Power of Your Plate Let's Go! Getting in Gear Breaking the Food Seduction Keys for Natural Appetite Control Digestive Health Healthy Blood Pressure Each class is 2-hours and includes a 15-20 minute DVD lecture by Dr. Neal Barnard, nutrition discussion and tips, live cooking demo of THREE new recipes each class, and lots of sampling of delicious plant-based foods. Space is limited, so register today! http://www.eatplant-based.com/ 4-Class Series Instruction = $100 ($25 per class) followed by optional 30-minute cooking demo with FREE samples Wednesdays 6-8 p.m.  July 13, 27, & August 3, 10                                                  1856 Hendersonville Road, Asheville , NC 28803                                                   Phone: 828-210-0100                                                  https://www.earthfare.com/our-stores/asheville-south

Jarrod Harris‘ act is an oddly comfortable mix of trailer-park filth, comic angst and hipster irony. While his style may fit into several categories along the comedy spectrum, his clever writing only fits into one: funny.”   Noah Gardenswartz – Creative Loafing. Jarrod is best known for his former character work on Action Figure Therapy, lending his voice and writing for the Jungle and Snow characters which were featured in LA Weekly’s “Top Comic To Watch in 2012″ as well as the front page of the Huffington Post Comedy section in 2011. Jarrod’s stand-up has been seen on TBS’ Lopez Tonight and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. Campus Activities Magazine named him as one of the Hot Comics of 2009 and Top Comics to Watch in 2010. In 2009 Jarrod was final 4 at the San Francisco Comedy Competition and in 2010 was invited back for Detroit Comedy Festival’s “Best of Fest” as well as host of 2010/2011 Laughing Skull Festival.

The Italian tradition of Comedia dellarte grows strange wings in Tarocco: A Soldiers Tale, a mesmerizing fusion of circus arts, dance, mask-and-puppet theater, original music, elaborate costumes, and animation. Tarocco tells the story of an Italian WWI infantryman, trapped behind enemy lines after narrowly escaping the gas attacks at Caporetto. To pass the time, the soldier comforts a dying comrade with stories using the images from an ancient deck of playing cards known as the Tarocco Piemontese (a predecessor of modern Tarot cards). What follows is a spellbinding and dark narrative based on the Fools Journey of the Tarot.

LinksWayland is a four piece rock n' roll band consisting of Mitch Arnold on vocals, Phillip Vilenski on guitar, Dean Pizzazz on bass, and Tyler Coburn on drums. All four members have deep roots in the midwest, and the band is named after Phillip Vilenski's hometown of Wayland, MI.

Managed by Jesse James Dupree, (Jackyl, Full Throttle Saloon) the band released their first album (self-titled) in 2010. They have since released a four-song EP, "Welcome To My Head." The title track had a successful run on Active Rock Radio.

The bands 2nd single Reno won many "best of" radio awards in 2013 all across the country. Wayland's current single "Get A Little" peaked at #6 on the iTunes rock chart and was labeled the "Friday Song" on radio stations nation wide. Wayland is currently in the studio working on a new album.
Staying true to the their midwest work ethic, Wayland has a reputation for high energy live shows. . "Always on tour," the band averages 2-300 shows a year.

They have shared bills with some of rock's biggest acts such as Alice in Chains, Volbeat, Halestorm, Rob Zombie, Brett Michaels, Sammy Hagar, Theory of a Deadman, Black Stone Cherry, Seether, Hinder, Shinedown, Buckcherry, Jackyl, Slash, Alice Cooper and many more. Perfect harmonies, riveting guitar solos, and lyrics that connect to working class America, keeps this band in demand.

Since first hitting the road in January 2012, the band has steadily built a grassroots following. Wayland is very true to staying connected with the their fanbase, the Wayland Warriors, and is active on many Social Media platforms.
The Low Counts

LinksThe Low Counts are an Americana/Roots/Rock duo. Their original music is a hodge podge of the all of the music that influences them the most, finding the Low Counts effortlessly combining early 40's and 50's Mississippi/Urban/Piedmont Blues, 50's Sun Records styled Rock/Rockabilly, Psychedelia, 60's Garage Rock, 70's Stoner Rock, old Country, Stax Soul, Hip-Hop or whatever else he can find to throw in the pot. As long as it comes out of the mash-up sounding original, real, fresh and if it rocks, it gets the stamp of approval. This duo isn't easy to categorize, but one thing anyone could agree on is that whatever comes out of it, it's always no-nonsense, raw, energetic, primal and coming from many music avenues at once, weaving them into one unique sound.

Links710 OIL began when Chris Johnson stole Vincenzo Mastropasqua from a hardcore/death metal band. Then Ian Switz saw an ad in a music store for a band needing a lead guitarist, and within weeks was a member. Shortly thereafter, Les Moseley, a longtime friend and audio technician, was called upon to take over as bass guitarist.

In August 2007, they won the 100.5 MAX FM Battle of the Bands. In October of 2007, they released their first self-produced, full length album, No Name. In 2008, and 2009, they were nominated in Portfolio Weekly’s Hampton Roads Music Awards for Best Local Metal/ Hard Rock, and Best Live Performance. In 2011 they were nominated in the Veer Local Music Awards for Best Hard Rock, and Best Live Performance. They've shared the stage with several popular national acts such as Dokken, Apocalyptica, Steel Panther, Buckcherry, Hawthorne Heights, Lit, Otherwise, and Adrenaline Mob. And best for last, WINNERS of the 2010 Guitar Center/KISS Contest for Virginia Beach where they opened up the entire show at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater.

Every show combines great music with a stage presence that matches it. Simply put, no song sounds the same, yet each song sounds like 710 OIL.

Ages 18+

I started Swans in 1982 in NYC. At the time, I had no musical skills whatsoever, just instinct and a need to make something happen. The music changed constantly over the years, and I’m gratified it reached, and continues to reach, a fair number of people. After 15 years, I decided to end Swans, as the name had become a burden and the associations no longer fit with what I wanted to do into the future. I started Angels of Light in 1999, and that’s my main musical focus now. I also run Young God Records and release (and sometimes produce) music by people whose music I enjoy.

Dozens of people came and went through the 15 years of Swans existence. These are the people that spring immediately to mind: Michael Gira, Norman Westberg, Roli Mossiman, Harry Crosby, Sue Hanel, Jonathan Kane, Algis Kizys, Jarboe, Ted Parsons, Steve Mcallister, Larry Mullins, Virgil Moorefield, Vudi, Joe Goldring, Ronaldo Gonzales, Vinnie Signorelli, Christoph Hahn, Ivan Nahem, Bill Rieflin, Bill Bronson, Phil Puleo, Anton Fier, Jenny Wade, Clinton Steele…and more…

PS – Jarboe was the longest-lasting Swans contributor of those listed above and contributed more than can be mentioned here. To learn more about her, go to thelivingjarboe.com

Here’s some of the music that I enjoyed during the time of Swans: Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, The Stooges, Brian Eno, Teenage Jesus And The Jerks, DNA, The Contortions, Glenn Branca, Black Flag, early Pink Floyd, This Heat, Kraftwerk, Herman Nitsch, Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Public Image LTD., SPK, Ennio Morricone, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and always, always Bob Dylan and The Beatles…ha ha! I’m sure there’s 100s more, but who cares and I can’t remember anyway… – Michael Gira / Young God Records 2008

FAN FORWARD ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS:
http://www.waylandtheband.com/

Wayland is a four piece rock n’ roll band consisting of Mitch Arnold on vocals, Phillip Vilenski on guitar, Dean Pizzazz on bass, and Tyler Coburn on drums. All four members have deep roots in the midwest, and the band is named after Phillip Vilenski’s hometown of Wayland, MI.

Managed by Jesse James Dupree, (Jackyl, Full Throttle Saloon) the band released their first album (self-titled) in 2010. They have since released a four-song EP, “Welcome To My Head.” The title track had a successful run on Active Rock Radio. The bands 2nd single Reno won many “best of” radio awards in 2013 all across the country. Wayland’s current single “Get A Little” peaked at #6 on the iTunes rock chart and was labeled the “Friday Song” on radio stations nation wide. Wayland is currently in the studio working on a new album.

Staying true to their midwest work ethic, Wayland has a reputation for high energy live shows. . “Always on tour,” the band averages 200-300 shows a year. They have shared bills with some of rock’s biggest acts such as Alice in Chains, Volbeat, Halestorm, Rob Zombie, Brett Michaels, Sammy Hagar, Theory of a Deadman, Black Stone Cherry, Seether, Hinder, Shinedown, Buckcherry, Jackyl, Slash, Alice Cooper and many more. Perfect harmonies, riveting guitar solos, and lyrics that connect to working class America, keeps this band in demand.

Since first hitting the road in January 2012, the band has steadily built a grassroots following. Wayland is very true to staying connected with their fanbase, the Wayland Warriors, and is active on many Social Media platforms.

Description:

The Mantras, a six piece jam machine born of Greensboro, NC have been conquering crowds and melting minds all over the country progressively for 10 years. The bands music can be described with all types of varying rock and roll terminology, but is absolutely best defined by each listeners ear and, equally important, their experience.The Mantras are a family of rock; their closely knit bonds can truly be felt by the crowd whilst the band performs. This is a critical feature of their community. One can easily tell that the musical pockets created by the likes of dueling guitars, gut checked baselines, screeching synthesizers, a complete projection light show and two incredibly symbiotic drummers are no accident. This group of people knows each other and the musical conversation on stage is simply beautiful to watch. The feeling is not exclusive just to the members on stage. The Mantras loyal fan base can testify to the reciprocation of love between performer and attendee, a concert feature which can absolutely lock The Mantras into a new listeners brain, and shortly after forever into their rolodex of favorite bands. In a scene where it is sometimes difficult to stabilize a fan base and a consistent identity, The Mantras music is transcendent. It has all of the ebbs and flows, peaks and valleys and patterns of constriction and release that can hook someone for life. Each show is a story. Each story is unique.In addition to the collaborative element between band and fans, The Mantras have shared the stage with some of the foremost titans of jam. Their most recent studio release, entitled Jam Bands Ruined My Life was recorded at Umphreys McGee, axe man Jake Cinnigers home studio, where Jake is featured on two tracks. Shortly thereafter recording, The Mantras opened for and shared the stage with Umphreys McGee members while performing the thumping single entitled, Kinetic Bump. In addition, The Mantras have collaborated with members of The String Cheese Incident, Tea Leaf Green, and Perpetual Groove among many others. The year 2013 saw The Mantras play over 180 shows, culminating in their annual Mantrabash music and arts festival, held in the beautiful back country of Ferguson, NC.The festival stands as a testament to the loyalty of the fan base and the engagement of The Mantras within their local, regional, and national music communities. Attended by thousands, Mantrabash has become the landing spot for live music fans from all over the country to enjoy the hard work and dedication of The Mantras in addition to the other stellar musicians who appear over the 4 days.

In this largely hands-on lab, students apply concepts learned from Brewing Science in order to diagnose and correct a series of "off" brews. Exercises are designed to encourage critical tasting and thinking about coffee brewing, as well as to simulate common café situations, such as dialing in a new brewer or coffee and adjusting an existing recipe for taste and quality. *Brewing Science is a prerequisite for this lab. Contact your local rep for more information. FAQs What can/can't I bring to the event? Please bring a water bottle and notebook. Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Find your regional support team's contact info here. Can I update my registration information? Yes! You have until 24 hours before the lab to update your registration.
