Eliot Lipp has been touring extensively across the country playing venues, events and festivals in support of his new album; Peace, Love, Weed 3D. Peace Love Weed 3D began as a collection of loose sketches made on various drum machines and synthesizers recorded to tape. This source tape was then cut apart, re-sampled, and enhanced with the addition of more samples and live instrumentation. Lipp chose to work for the first time with a studio guitarist. He met Guitar Ron in the Subway station close to his studio. Throughout this album his efforts blend perfectly with Lipp's exquisite taste in sound as the synth and guitar leads weave effortlessly into thick chords and complex drums. It's a pleasant surprise that Lipp found the time and effort to make such a well crafted album. Along with his various side projects, live band, and relentless touring which has made him a crowd favorite all over the country. Last year he started the Old Tacoma Records label to release and promote his music. Peace Love Weed 3D is the first full length on Old Tacoma Records and a true highlight in Eliot Lipp's impressive musical catalog.
Sci Fi has been growing rapidly throughout the east coast over their first two years on the circuit. A favorite to the Asheville scene, Sci Fi has performed at several large events and festivals including; Loki Music Festival, Trinumeral, and Tron-A-Thon. You can find their latest studio album; Sci Fi, at I-Tunes or CD Baby. Sci Fi will be releasing their new album on May 22nd entitled; "Sci Fi - Live at the Whiskey".

Asheville, NC - What are the prevalent social concerns to the city of Asheville? Are there enough community outreach programs in place to satisfy those needs? Western North Carolina's rich history, diverse culture and stunning natural beauty make it a perfect launching point to develop grassroots projects that speak to the concerns of the community.
In an effort to identify programmatic solutions to pressing social issues, this summer Concepts4Charity, Inc. (C4C) will provide a platform for Asheville citizens to weigh in on topics that hit close to home in a new documentary entitled PhilanthroPEAK. We will be engaging a diverse spectrum of community musicians/artists, educators, philanthropists and entrepreneurs to get an inside look at initiatives in which they are currently involved.
