The Asheville-area gypsy punk band Sirius.B will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12 in UNC Asheville's Highsmith University Union Grotto. The concert is free and open to the public.
Sirius.B, which was voted Best Rock Band, Best Acoustic/Folk Band and Best All-Around Band in the 2013 Mountain Xpress readers’ poll, is a self-described “absurdist gypsy folk funk punk” band. Their high-energy style is created with an eclectic mix of multi-lingual vocals and instruments, including the accordion, violin, cello, acoustic guitar, flamenco guitar, charango (an Andean stringed instrument), banjo, African drums, marching band percussion, snare drum, fretless bass, melodica and clarinet.
