9th Annual Cash Bash
This annual event not only pays tribute to the music of Johnny Cash, but also offers an opportunity to see some of the area’s finest rockabilly and honky-tonk bands. This, the first of two nights, will feature Asheville’s Southbound Turnaround, Charleston, S.C.’s Sky Paige & The Original Recipe, Greensboro’s The Malamondos and Charlotte’s own JT & The Dragpipes. Head back again on Saturday for Richmond, Va.’s Andy Vaughn & the Driveline, Winston-Salem’s The Bo-Stevens, Greensboro’s The Tremors and fellow Richmond band Venus Throw. $10 each night.
