If you were wondering if Asheville’s vegan, pretentious, goodie two-shoes had something to offer other than a snooty humph because you had a double cheeseburger from McDonalds in downtown after you watched somebody like Miley Cyrus at the Civic Center; you then, are probably looking for something like this.
The Secret B-sides are a friend-oriented, music magic, Soul, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B and Funk-jam-yo-face-off crew combined into a metamorphous wave of sound and rhythm to make you feel good, no matter whats going on in your day. Here’s one of the few funk and soul bansd that seems to be in what we call “a mission from god.” They’ll make you dance, even if you are in the bathroom trying to take a leak. Just because you can’t get that sweet ass rhythm out of your head.
They are greatly influenced by music that your parents probably conceived you in, and from what “I” personally get from them is, they are trying to educate you on the kind of music that truly changed the world. Hopefully they entice you to go and buy ACTUAL records for once in this decade.
Maybe get you to sit your ass down and listen. No multitasking – just thick by thick track. The Secret B-sides, are a perfect example of what great, great talent, can come out of Asheville, and if you where wondering if theres any more? Maybe you can lay off your Facebook, or maybe you’re favorite vegetarian porn site (no secrets here – pun kind of intended), and check out more of the Asheville Music scene on XOAVL.
You will realize that being proud of where you live is not about how good you are at remembering your street names, but its about letting people know, how awesome this place is.
