On off nights, there is a club under the Orange Peel called Pulp. Off nights for upstairs that is. This is an intimate room and one of the best places to see local bands like they were playing in your very own man-cave.
This night saw a newish band to the Asheville music scene, The Black Rabbits, but I am sure you will hear more about and of them. They have a really tight sound that kept my foot moving, and a great look.
Following to the stage was Mystery Cult, who are rapidly gaining a cult following from those who dig their mixture of roots and psychedelic music. The 8-piece band filled the small stage, and blasted out a great sound tonight with their usual interesting mix of voices and instruments.
