Simulcast: Yonatan Gat at The Mothlight on Monday, July 21st

Tonight. we're streaming live from the Mothlight: click to listen here!

Yonatan Gat

Kreamy 'Lectric Santa, featuring AshevilleFM's own Robert Price, of Beyond the Realm of Comprehension!

Kortiba

Are you stuck at work, on the road, or listening from abroad? Tune into the stream in this post!

From themothlight.com: A masterful guitarist, Gat recently won Village Voice's "Best Guitarist of 2013". Live, his power trio is experienced on the floor inside the audience, with contrasted lighting pointing at the band members as they tear through "a wholly fresh fusion of psychedelic sounds and rhythms from around the globe, with nods to free jazz and served with an unabashed punk spirit". Gat's wildly inventive guitar assumes simultaneous lead and rhythm roles, blending punk rock with Middle Eastern styles, backed by Gal Lazer's hard-hitting African-influenced grooves and Sergio Sayeg's (of Brazilian psychedelic rockers Garotas Suecas) melodic anchor.

POWER THE TOWER!
