Dig Local is proud to interview some of the awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.
Things To Do
Get your Groove On
We dig The Get Right Band so much and have missed seeing them live. Lucky for us The Grey Eagle will be offering up a
 free live stream of the band tonight at 7:30. Y'all probably know that The Get Right Band is a psychedelic indie rock power trio from right here in Asheville that focuses on "following their muses to honest self-expression, to whatever excites them and pushes them into unexplored territory." Cool, right?
