Acoustic Syndicate, one of “North Carolina's best kept secrets” is returning this holiday season for a pair of very special shows. They will be at the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh, NC on Friday, November 27th, and return to the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC, for their annual Thanksgiving show on Saturday, November 28th.

Known for its high-energy, positive sound, Acoustic Syndicate delivers a genre-defying performance, masterfully blending its eclectic influences with trademark finesse that only 17 years of cohesive teamwork can bring.

Tyler Ramsey with Wayne Robbins

Despite being a proud Ashevillean (I'm pretty sure I used to see him at the W Avl Earth Fare all the time), singer/songwriter/badass Band of Horses guitarist Ramsey doesn't play a whole lot of hometown shows, so don't miss this one. His recent solo album is a winner. Listen here.
