The last three bands to play at Harvest Record’s Transfigurations. At the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC.
After leaving the Books at Diana Wortham I went over to the Grey Eagle just in time to catch the last few songs of Jonathan Kane’s set. All five were onstage in a straight line, with Jonathan in the middle. They were absolutely wailing out some serious rock. Quite a change from the mellow pace of the Books. I was impressed.
For their 5 year anniversary local Asheville record shop Harvest Records put on a 3 day music festival. My sister Rebecca arranged for me to attend the shows and take pictures for the local independent newspaper the Mountain Xpress .
It was my first time ever being commissioned to take pictures and it was a great experience. These are all from the first day at one of the best places to see live music in Asheville, the Grey Eagle.
The bands playing this show, in order of appearance, were:
Floating Action from Asheville, NC
The Coathangers from Atlanta, GA
Kurt Vile from Philadelphia, PA
These pictures are all from a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a hike up Mount Pisgah, a Sulock family favorite. It was my last day in North Carolina and it was probably about 65 degrees.
My friend Valerie Hastie made the drive from Charlotte to Asheville for a short and sweet visit. We went and played some disc golf and Asheville’s excellent Richmond Hill course.
