What do you do with an Ol’ timey band born in the 80’s?

tar and rosin

You enjoy them! Tar and Rosin has an energy like I haven’t seen in a band for awhile. These folks have wisdom and cadence in their playing that makes you want to get rowdy! With a fiddle, banjo, gee-tar, and wash board, along with collaborations, Tar and Rosin will get your body moving as you order another local brew. Based out of Des Moines, IA at the moment, this mutlicultural band loves Asheville so much, they’re thinking about moving here! If you love a fast string sound, with the passion of a unionist from the 30’s, check out Tar and Rosin. The name of their CD says You Can’t Get There From Here, but if you’re listening while drinking whiskey, you will get there, and you’ll enjoy every minute. They played at a variety of venues around town, including the Westville pub and Highland Brewing Company, while they were here. The band is in Eastern North Carolina right now. They’re headed on up the east coast, but I’ll put money on them coming back here as soon as they can. Just some words of warning: Don’t invite them back to stay the night at your place, and DO NOT call …

Blues Jam at Westville Pub

Blues Jam at Westville Pub

Westville Pub attracts a fun crowd on Tuesdays with their Blues night. The Westville All Stars headline, and other folks interested in jamming are welcomed up to play. The music starts at 10 P.M., but the sound checks start earlier. If you’re there around 9, you may get to hear Somewhere Over the Rainbow sung in a grizzly ‘ol bluegrass voice while the mics and instruments are tuned up. The crowd is eclectic, the music was hopping, and I haven’t had shrimp and grits that good since I was in Charleston! The space is comfortable and Westville Pub is an easy place to be. With a small dance area, a pool table in the back, and different places to perch, it’s no wonder West Asheville is proud to claim this neighborhood pub. If you’re free on a Tuesday, come dance and buy me a Magic Hat stout at Westville Pub on Haywood, and best of all, no cover charge!

In the woods with the Wicked

Flight from Wicked Weed

Wicked Weed, Ashevilles’ newest taste topic who had originally intended to open on the 21st, welcomed A-Town to pull up a thirsty stool December 28th, 2012. And bring in the New Year they most certainly did, with 15 specialty craft made brews. Half American, half Belgian style ales, lagers, stouts and sours. The best part is they plan on having more to come throughout the year. I didn’t have a chance to find out what the staple beers were but I did get a taste of 7 delicious ales, all with Wicked Weeds wickedly clever titles: Freak double I.P.A. (8.4%) Dark age burbon stout (10.5%) Transgressor red (7.2%) Vixen cocoa stout (8.8%) Bedeviled golden strong (9.4%) Black angel cherry sour (5.6%) I was concerned at first that two guys from Dogfish Head wouldn’t have the flavor and style to compare to Ashevilles unique scene and culture. But gladly mistaken I was. This beer is on point. The freak double IPA hints at the 60/120 minute IPA but lacks the sweetness, which in my humble opinion, is a good thing. Citrus hops immediately punch me in the face and leave me wanting more right before noticing the subtle sweetness calming me back …
