themothlight2_2013Here’s the announcement from The Mothlight in West Asheville. Congratulations! Background here on The Mothlight.

You found us! We’re so glad that you did. And now that we’re all alone together, let’s get some info into your faces. What do you want to know? Oh right, the shows. We’ve got shows! Opening weekend with Angel Olsen and Richard Buckner? Sure, let’s do this thing.

Skip right on ahead to the full website at any point. No hard feelings if you wanna miss out on this gushy talk that’s about to pour out.

We’re psyched to join the incredibly awesome businesses that already exist on Haywood Road in West Asheville. We are looking forward to contributing to the already amazing Asheville music scene, which rivals that of towns 5 times our size. Huge shout out to everyone who has worked so hard to make this community what it is and for making us feel so welcome.

    Not neighborly. They have consistently blocked the ally and illigally park blocking the side street. All we need is more out of towners ignoring and harassing the neighbors.

    Bartell, eh? So it only took two shows to run out of interesting local openers?
