The Allen Thompson Band -- East Nashville stalwarts for the better part of the last decade -- could very well be writing the soundtrack for their ever-evolving neighborhood. It's a neighborhood that, like the band, has changed markedly over the years, ever since Thompson -- a Virginia native -- left his home state and headed west. 

They're a rock & roll band with roots in southern soul, California country, and psychedelic music. Along the way, they've grown a bit louder, too, adding a keyboardist to the lineup and replacing Thompson's acoustic guitar — a familiar...

Black Robin Hero plays live in the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC.Fresh off their newly released debut rock n' roll album Narrow Plains EP (recorded at the famed Echo Mountain Studios), Black Robin Hero has been gaining a reputation in Western North Carolina and the Southeast as a band that commands attention. The Asheville, NC based band "comes out of the gate with cymbals flaring, guitars revving, kick-drum taking a beating in the punch and dance. No apologies, no awkward silences, no stammer, no sidelong glances. Just all systems go, full speed ahead, take no prisoners, charge. This is how you make an entrance."

King MacAlpin Release Party in the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company located in Asheville, NC.

Come join us on Friday, July 17th for the official release of our new line of beers, "The Warrior Series". This series forms a new dynasty of beers, first reigned by King MacAlpin Double IPA. Kenneth MacAlpin united the Picts and the Scoti people to form the Kingdom of Scotland, and his descendants' rule spanned most of the Middle Ages. Befitting the King's boldness, this beer is double dry-hopped and packed with 5.5 pounds of Chinook, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial hops. Bright and layered, it hints of pineapple, orange, grapefruit and lemon peel. Then it finishes with a...

Lazybirds is a classic American band with roots in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Formed in 1996, the quartet began by immersing into the old forgotten styles of blues, jazz, country, and ragtime that had been the soundtrack of the American underground several decades earlier. The band quickly developed a reputation in the High Country for playing music that touches people at their core in a way that hearkens back to a time when music was more closely intertwined with nature. With Mitch Johnston on stand up bass and vocals, James T. Browne on drums and vocals, Jay...

Think of a rustic cabin where the roots of the writing were born. Then you open the doors of the cabin and step out to a busy city street, where lights are flashing and you just feel like in a matter of minutes, you've just experienced the best of both worlds. In a nutshell, this is Sidecar Honey. Down home roots sounds with an original modern edge. Vocalist/guitarist Dave Dribbon, vocalist/mandolinist Jeff Honeycutt and lap steel/banjo/guitarist Randy Dzielak are the songwriters. Their songs are Indie/Americana/Rock. With strong vocals/harmonies and a dynamic but sometimes...
