From the Lovelies at Asheville Grown, who will be presenting at Friday evening’s Green Drinks at Bobo Gallery on Lexington:

Come out this Friday after work for some local brew, local treats, good company & good conversation. Asheville Grown Business Alliance will be presenting. Find out how you can get involved in the Buy Local Campaign!

We’ll also be presenting ideas and ways in which we can help grow the local economy, boost local business and create more job opportunities.

This is a free event open to everyone, so bring your friends and show your love!

From those boys over at Harvest Records:

THIS SATURDAY, April 17th, 2010

Harvest will be participating in the 3rd annual “Record Store Day” in a major way this year…

First & foremost, there are literally almost 200 different exclusive & very limited releases, only available in indie stores on Saturday — on any format imaginable (LP, CD, 7″, DVD, book…)
Examples include Modest Mouse’s “The Moon & Antarctica” reissued on LP, Flaming Lips doing “Dark Side of the Moon” on limited vinyl, Budos Band & Sharon Jones splitting a 7″, Bon Iver &Peter Gabriel covering each other, and on and on and on…

We will also be providing you folks with some major freebie action. Not only will the first customers of the day receive a free bag’o’swag with all sorts of interesting nuggets, and not only will we have some treats to snack on while flippin’ thru the stacks, BUT we will be giving away free raffle prizes including a
“Beatles In Mono” 13-disc limited box set (retail price = $274.99!!!)…

And of course, the cherry on top is (most likely outdoors) live performances by Drive-By Truckers and Langhorne Slim!

PS- the treats? Cupcakes.
