CONTEST OVER Win tix NOW to see Toubab Krewe Friday at the Peel


Toubab plays a two-night stand at the Peel, and we’ve got tix to see them Friday.

African jams meet Southern rock and killer musicianship as Toubab Krewe–Asheville’s entry into the world-music scene on the National Geographic label–returns.

Get global with TK: Two tickets to the first person who can tell us the name of the band’s most recent CD.

Only commenters who have not won anything from Ashvegas in the last 30 days are eligible to win. Please use your correct first and last name in your comment, so we know who to hold your tickets for.

Ticket contests on Ashvegas (USUALLY) happen at 9 a.m. and/or 3 p.m on select weekdays only, though we reserve the right to run a contest anytime.

From the Peel:

Some music cannot be found on a map or within iTunes categories. Some music is so original it seems snatched from the great, invisible substrata that runs below all human activity, a sound aching to be born without a flag or fixed allegiance – free, questing, overflowing with immediate, tangible life. This is the music of Toubab Krewe, the vibrant Asheville, NC-based instrumental powerhouse that creates a sonic Pangaea that lustily swirls together rock, African traditions, jam sensibilities, international folk strains and more. While nearly impossible to put into any box, it takes only a few moments to realize in a very palpable way that one is face-to-face with a true original who recognizes no borders in a march towards a muscular, original, globally switched-on sound.

Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 9pm Tickets: $16 advance / $27 two night pass
