Makeout Room’s final show Feb. 15th at Broadway’s

Yes, it’s true.  The Makeout Room, one of Asheville’s greatest rock-n-roll bands, is calling it quits.  If you’ve never heard/seen the Makeout Room live …you need to thank your lucky stars that you still have one more chance.  Mark your calendars, and try to smile with thought of having a Saturday and Sunday to recover from such great loss.

RetroCraft Artist/Author, Suzie Millions at Malaprop’s

Asheville’s Suzie Millions is a high artisan with an abiding love of the crafted, kitschy, handmade and heartfelt, and her brand new book, The Complete Book of Retro Crafts, embodies all those things.

One of the delights of the book is getting a peek at her living and crafting spaces, which are sights to behold and feature such things as: a closet shrine to Hank Williams, a “glitter station,” cubbies full of tiny treasures, and an old-school GPS. These are seasoned places, lovingly created and attended to, and, showing them, she shares a deep knowledge of materials and process. This is a book to be read for pleasure as well as worked from. Sharp and warm. We love it.

You really should buy the book and come out to see Suzie in person at Malaprop’s Saturday, Jan. 19 at 7 pm.
