A special event on Tuesday at the Sly Grog is also not to be missed.
The Jon Stickley Trio's show this weekend is their first local gig featuring a band's new drummer, Hunter Deacon.
The Haywood Road venue will be focused on weddings and events, as well as being a neighborhood listening room.
Also, Luella's BBQ is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a big party at its north Asheville location Saturday, and more.
The first ever Fritzgiving was a show for the ages.
Acoustic Syndicate, Shane Pruitt Band and Friends and Phuncle Sam will all perform at the event to benefit WNCW, FATE and Habitat for Humanity.
