Tonight in Asheville

Tonight is a big night for electronic music in Asheville. In fact, this weekend is a big weekend for electronic music!

Live and direct from San Francisco CA, Bassnectar will be taking the stage tonight at the Orange Peel in front of a capacity crowd – not the first time he has sold out the Orange Peel. Bassnectar has made quite a name for himself in the Asheville area, and so much so that his Orange Peel show now warrants an official afterparty! The site of that afterparty will be at Club 828 …

Bonobo (aka Simon Green) will make his debut performance in the Asheville area when he spins a late-night DJ set at Club 828, after the conclusion of the Bassnectar show. Quite an accomplished musician and DJ in his own right, the UK-based Bonobo’s 2006 release, Days to Come, was awarded album of the year honors on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide (BBC). Simon Green has now released the first single from his yet to be titled, forthcoming album – the new single “The Keeper” featuring Andreya Triana (video: Having been recording in Barcelona, San Francisco, and Hackney, Bonobo will now crisscross The United States rocking DJ sets in advance of his new release (on Ninja Tunes) – Friday night’s stop being in Asheville.

Also featured at the “Official Bassnectar Afterparty”:

* Chicago-based DJ trio Orchard Lounge who has several times visited the Asheville area – most recently while spinning a late night set at the 09-09-09 Trinumeral festival. While we have worked with them previously, this crew’s popularity is growing exponentially!

* Asheville’s down-tempo, trip-hop duo Paper Tiger, who was also featured at the Trinumeral festival. Paper Tiger is about to release their debut album – the feature single, “Me Have Fun,” now has a video available for your viewing (video:
Tonight joined by nebCinema on live visuals!

* DJ Mingle, who is truly one of our favorite DJs in Asheville area and who stylistically pairs with Bonobo as good as any. Mingle is quite the unassuming master of his trade, with three full-length albums already released!

* VJ Megan McKissack who will handle visuals throughout most of the evening and is becoming a regular at our events.

As always, we request that all those coming to Club 828 conduct themselves in a socially acceptable manner, treating the club patrons and employees with the utmost respect – the same way they will treat you.
