Best Indie & Rock in Asheville

Mother Mother at The Orange Peel

Mother Mother

Formed in Vancouver by siblings Ryan and Molly in 2005, Mother Mother expanded their upbeat alt folk-rock empire with the additions of keyboardist/singer Jasmin Parkin, dummer Ali Siadat and bassist Mike Young. Fusing catchy melodic hooks with driving, groove-laden bass-lines, sparkling synths and glorious three part harmonies, the quintet have solidified their status as indie pop heavyweights!

Vampire Weekend at Rabbit Rabbit

Vampire Weekend

Breaking out with their timeless track 'A-Punk', the delectable indie four pieces are back out on tour in 2024, bringing with them the witty and honest songs, sartorial elegance and accessible style that makes them continually popular. Catch them on the road this year as they present their fifth album, 'Only God Was Above Us'.

Barenaked Ladies at Harrah's Cherokee Center Asheville

Barenaked Ladies

Canada's finest purveyors of bouncy pop-rock are heading out for a handful of shows in 2024. The multiple Juno Award-winning band never fail to deliver hook-laden goodness, from their iconic single 'One Week', to the theme tune for TV's The Big Bang Theory, and their live shows are always fantastic fun.

Violent Femmes at Rabbit Rabbit

Violent Femmes

As well known for their infamous feuding as for their ground-breaking punk rock work, Violent Femmes have no trouble showing us why they are one of the best acts in punk as they set off on tour across America this year! They became the chosen soundtrack for angsty teens everywhere thanks to irascibly intelligent anthems like 'Blister In The Sun' and 'Kiss Off'. Don't miss these absolute icons of 90s rock!

Cold War Kids at The Orange Peel

Cold War Kids

Alternative rockers and indie darlings Cold War Kids are heading out on a new tour in 2024, with pop duo Hovvdy and indie pop artist Joe P on select dates. Known for their jangling guitar riffs and heartfelt lyrics, CWK cite influences as far-ranging as Fiona Apple to Led Zeppelin, which all come together in a blues-rock-infused jam fest.

Ben Folds at ETSU Martin Center For The Arts

Ben Folds

The frontman of his self-named band, rock artist and producer Ben Folds continues to work with some of the most eclectic names in music and entertainment (remember his Common People cover that featured William Shatner and Bill Clinton?), as well as pushing the envelope on alt-rock ever further. A self-confessed enigma, he prefers to stay out of the limelight except when touring, but can easily claim credit for some of music's most unlikely trends.
