Concerts in Asheville

One of the many appeals of Asheville is that there are abundant opportunities to enjoy live music here.  Known for being an artistically diverse and embracing city, Asheville has hosted musicians from Bob Dylan to Arcade Fire, so no matter what your taste in music, you can be certain to find a show.  Last June, for example, my brother attended a Wiz Khalifa performance, and last night, he went to a Dr. Dog concert.  UNC Asheville students love to take advantage of Asheville’s music scene; many of my classmates and friends have told me that this was one of the attractions of our school when they were choosing colleges.  Below, I have listed several (of our many) local venues to give you an idea of the kinds of places you can go to catch a live show when you're in town.
1.        The Orange Peel

2.       Asheville Civic Center
3.       The Grey Eagle

5.  Jack of the Wood Pub

6.       Diana Wortham Theatre

If you are considering UNC Asheville for college, or even if you're just visiting a friend here, I strongly recommend taking advantage of all the musical opportunities Asheville has to offer.  You won't be disappointed!
