Arrested Development @ The Orange Peel :: 08.27.2012

While I’ve seen them perform several times before, Arrested Development never ceases to amaze me and always puts on a fantastic show. The classic hip-hop group from Atlanta, GA played to a packed house at The Orange Peel in downtown Asheville on August 27th.

tUnE-yArDs @ The Orange Peel :: 06.06.2012

This past Monday I shot Down at the Peel, which marked my first shoot at a heavy metal show. Or attending a metal show for that matter. Sure, there have been plenty of hard rock concerts and Lollapalooza’s, but those are child’s play in comparison.

On March 30th, Toronto-based electronic music duo, Zeds Dead rocked out a packed house at the Orange Peel in downtown Asheville. The Living Dead Tour also included rapper Omar LinX and openers XI and AarabMuzik. Definitely no shortage of bass in the place!
