We usually try to make it to Asheville, North Carolina, at least once a year. It's one of our favorite cities/areas to visit. The last few years has always been during the Bele Chere Festival, the last weekend of July. We already had a room booked for the festival this year. However, an opportunity presented itself a couple weeks earlier when a band we have been wanting to see for a long time, Jack's Mannequin, scheduled a Saturday night show at The Orange Peel, a well-known and respected live music venue that we had also been wanting to check out for a long time. So, away we went for the weekend.
