Pop Asheville Festival

Reverbnation reports:

"POPAsheville is a 2-day, 34-band modern music festival held at several venues in Asheville, NC USA, with a 3rd (pre-fest) day for advance ticketholders!

To our knowledge, POPAsheville is the first venue-based music festival ever held in Asheville.

POPAsheville supports a thriving scene for modern touring bands and recognizes the importance of community and information-sharing within this scene. In the midst of a highly transitional music industry, POPAsheville seeks to bolster partnerships between touring bands and to amplify Asheville's presence on the national music map.

There will be 34 pop/indie/alternative band performances, all showcased between 7:30pm and 2am both nights at The Grey Eagle, The *new* Rocket Club (West Asheville), and Stella Blue. Additional entertainers will perform on the LaZoom shuttle/entertainment bus, free to attendees!
Sunday events include a Music Biz Panel Discussion (at The Rocket Club) and tours at Echo Mountain and Collapseable Recording Studios. For full schedule, visit!

A FREE shuttle, courtesy of LaZoom tours, will transport chilly festivalgoers between music venues both evenings.

Ticket Info: An all-access wristband is a fan-friendly $15! Advance purchase recommended (for free Friday surprise event!) and can be done locally at The Grey Eagle, Stella Blue, The Rocket Club, Orbit DVD, Static Age Records, Harvest Records, Honeypot, or thru the above link (Tickets for individual nights may be purchased night-of-show for $10, based on availability).
