Modern Strangers - LIVE AT THE GEM

Modern Strangers is an Asheville-based band playing high-energy, toe-tapping, and melodic rock music! A 4-piece combo of journeymen musicians, they take their varied influences and form them into a JanglePop juggernaut with a mountain twist. Hard to pin down their sound, they've heard comparisons from The Beatles to The Pixies to early REM to Elvis Costello to The Kinks. Catchy songs, vocal harmonies and just the right amount of edge make these guys a fun night whether they're playing originals or quirky covers.

Bluegrass Boogie

In celebration of Balsam Range Art of Music Festival, we here at The Smoky Mountain News and Boojum Brewing Company will also be hosting an event as part of the weeklong festivities. 

The inaugural "Bluegrass Boogie" will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at The Gem downstairs taproom at Boojum Brewing in downtown Waynesville. Popular Western North Carolina bluegrass/Americana act Ol' Dirty Bathtub will kick things off at 8 p.m. as the house band for the evening. 

Balsam Range mandolinist Darren Nicholson (whose band won the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Association "Entertainer of the Year" award) will also be appearing onstage that night, alongside other musician friends and special guests that will be dropping by for some picking'-n'-grinnin'.
