The Merry Widow invites the area to start the weekend early with a versatile, four-band lineup.

Black Magic Flower Power will mesmerize the audience with its new-school psychedelic rock. This group epitomizes the modern psychedelic rock revival both aesthetically and musically. A smooth, modern delivery of resonant vocals is carried by plucky, wah-wah accented riffs, classic organ and thrilling rock beats

The band will be joined by a trio of groups including Supervillain. With Asheville’s reputation for customary jam rock, a band such as Supervillain is a pleasant surprise. Supervillain’s chosen jam style is an adrenalized delivery of raw, uncut rock sounds in the key of The Stooges.

Birmingham ambient rocker Little Girl will add a set of music that falls somewhere between Siouxsie Sioux and St. Vincent, filled with warm, electric dreams interpreted by dreamier vocals. Ravel will also be on hand to mix things up.
