Time to celebrate the best of WNC as selected by the readers of Mountain Xpress… (Thanks again for voting Ashvegas BEST BLOGBEST WEBSITE and BEST SOCIAL MEDIA PERSONALITY!)

This year’s event includes smooth soul from the Secret B-Sides, plus local hip-hop from  Crazy Horse and Colston and drag from the stars of Scandals. And you can win two tickets.

Just be the first correct commenter to tell us:  What’s Mountain Xpress’ news handle on Twitter?

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 weekdays, though we reserve the right to run a contest anytime.

Doors open at 8 p.m. From Xpress’ Facebook page for the event:

Remember the dazzling and endearing two-issue blowout of the 2012 Best of WNC? Of course you do — they were unfor-cat-able!

On Saturday, Nov. 17, you’ll have the chance to experience your local favorites in 3-D! And you won’t even need glasses (unless you wear glasses, in which case, you should wear them so you can see the spectacle in sharp relief).

Please join Mountain Xpress and Grey Eagle (#2 music venue) for a celebration of all things Best of WNC! The confetti of festivities includes music, comedy, trivia, a drag show and more.

A portion of the proceeds from the evening benefit the top-three nonprofit organizations: Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, MANNA FoodBank and Asheville-Area Habitat for Humanity.Music with two of these year’s smoothest favorites
