Asheville Symphony: Beethoven's Emperor feat. Yefim Bronfman, Piano
U.S. Cellular Center – Daniel Meyer, conductor Yefim Bronfman, piano Program: Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor” Liszt Les préludes Rimsky-Korsakov Capriccio espagnol We open our 2017-2018 season with a performance with one of the most celebrated pianists of our time, Yefim Bronfman, who makes his Asheville Symphony debut in Beethoven’s beloved “Emperor” Concerto, a work that continues to astonish audiences with its expansiveness and energy. We then feature the virtuosity of our own musicians in two iconic masterworks. Liszt’s Les préludes is his most popular tone poem, harnessing the rich sounds of each section of the orchestra. Rimsky-Korsakov, on the other hand, created a sparkling orchestral suite, which spotlights the individual soloists of the orchestra as well as each section on its own. It caps a night celebrating the mastery of a world-class soloist a well as our own terrific soloists within the ranks of the ASO. —Daniel Meyer Yefim Bronfman, piano Praised for his lyrical gifts, Bronfman has been nominated for six GRAMMY Awards, winning in 1997 for a recording of the three Bartok Piano Concerti. This fall he will open the Israel Philharmonic’s season with Zubin Mehta. More info:

Liars plus Bambara
The Orange Peel – Liars plus Bambara Show: 9pm Doors: 8pm $18 advance $20 day of show Ages 18+ Tickets & Info: Liars have never stood still, and refuse to be categorized. After forming in the Los Angeles area, where co-founders Angus Andrew and Aaron Hemphill met at the famed California Institute of the Arts, the band soon after decamped to Brooklyn, and released their first album, They Threw Us in a Trench and Stuck a Monument On Top (2001). The album saw the band at the vanguard of the newly emerging Brooklyn naughties music scene, and with their next release, Andrew and Hemphill enlisted Julian Gross to the line-up and wilfully confounded all expectations with the groundbreaking They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, a confrontational, noisy concept cycle dealing with German witch trials co-produced by the band with David Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Soon after the band moved to Berlin to create 2006’s Drum’s Not Dead: a conceptual album about the poisonous power dynamic between two fictional protagonists Drum and Mount Heart Attack. The release was accompanied by three different sets of visuals, and the album was awarded #6 in Pitchfork’s Top 50 Albums of that year. The eponymous 2007 follow-up replaced their now trademark themes with an emphasis on stripped-down, primal rock and roll and a rejection of concept. Rolling Stone awarded Freak Out one of their Tracks of the Year. The band returned to LA to create their next release, 2009’s Sisterworld, whose critical acclaim included the #1 slot in The Quietus’ albums of the year. 2012’s WIXIW, saw the band once more climb out of their comfort zone, overcoming a steep learning curve to record “direct into the computer”. The result is a stunning album. Nominated as an album of the year at the AIM Awards and featured in many Albums of 2012, WIXIW achieved the rare feat of being both their most accessible and most challenging work to date. In 2013 Liars were invited by Hedi Slimane to rework a track to soundtrack Saint Laurent’s SS14 Paris Fashion Week catwalk show and touring that year saw them premiere new tracks at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Primavera & Sonar festivals. Liars’ incredible discography leaves the field wide open for their forthcoming album, Mess, which is released in March 2014. Mess is an angry, ecstatic, primal burst of ritualistic electronics, the sound of Liars not only facing their fears, but chewing them up and spitting them back out in all their technicolour glory.

Class: Color that Sings, Pattern that Moves
Asheville Art Museum – CLASSES FOR ADULTS Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in special exhibitions and the Museum’s collection. Color That Sings, Pattern That Moves SEPTEMBER 26, OCTOBER 3, 10, 17, 24 + NOVEMBER 7 – Tuesdays, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Medium: Painting Level: All levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced) Cost: $220 Museum Members, $240 non-members (includes some materials) This six-part class combines explorations of Josef Albers’s color theory with the energy and rhythm of artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Egon Schiele, and contemporary Native American artists like Sarah Sense and Shan Goshorn, whose works are on view in Home Land. Students mix color to create glowing light to convey feeling, then combine color with pattern, repetition, and negative space to create energy. In-class studio sessions provide instruction in water-based media, with tips to make acrylic look and behave like oil. Weekly slide talks kick-start inspiration and provide unusual conceptual options. Individual critiques provide analytical tools to make small visual adjustments in the final work. All subjects are welcome: figure, landscape, abstraction, or combinations of all three! Instructor Glenn Hirsch holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, he taught for 23 years at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program, John F. Kennedy University’s Arts and Consciousness program, and the San Francisco Art Institute’s Public Education program. He has exhibited widely at public and private galleries in the US.

Craig Brown Band w/ Greg Cartwright at The Grey Eagle
The Grey Eagle – Craig Brown Band w/ Greg Cartwright at The Grey Eagle One of Detroit’s most beloved and powerful musicians has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a dynamite musical act together and called it Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album, The Lucky Ones Forget, was recorded almost live at Brown Rice Studio with Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive)—and is now available on Third Man Records. It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, fishing and vans—built upon the work of those daring punks of yore who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al). And it’s one of 2017’s must-hear records. Quick rewind. For years, Craig Brown shared manic lead vocals and guitar squealies in the completely unhinged punk band, Terrible Twos (Urinal Cake Records). He’s gigged with King Tuff (Sub Pop) and shredded with local Detroit acts the Brownstown Gals and the Mahonies. He concurrently batters with New Jersey’s Liquor Store—a band so notorious, they sell their own brand of switchblades at the merch table, defying all sorts of local ordinances. Whatever the band and whatever the avenue, Craig brings effortless musicianship and his damaged honkey-tonk howl to the mix. He has the ability to shred licks hotter and tastier than the Tres Hombres gatefold while breaking your heart with his crestfallen tunes. And despite being in bands for years, he’s just beginning to amaze with his eclectic and accomplished, beyond-pro-as-fuck guitar playing and songwriting abilities. Live, the Craig Brown Band might look like a pile of dirty clothes but deliver a surprisingly polished and tuneful sound that will have even the gnarliest of disenfranchised young people looking up from their phones—for at least a few tunes, anyway. The good ol’ boys in the band, Eric, Perry and Young Andrew hold down the bedraggled hillbilly-deluxe-meets-dive-bar-jukebox classic rock, offset by the pitch-perfect honeyed harmonies of the Drinkard sisters, Caitlin and Bonnie. Just the kind of band you scratch your head to in the beginning but rave to your friends about how much they fucking rule in the end.
