What: Wild South Weekend, to support Wild South's efforts to preserve the region's natural resources.
Where: Pisgah Brewing Company, 150 Eastside Drive, Black Mountain.
When: Maceo Parker concert: Friday, Oct. 5, 7:30 p.m.; $25. Wild South Rumpus: Saturday, Oct. 6, 6-8 p.m.; $20. Info: http://pisgahbrewing.com or http://www.wildsouth.org.
Why: Wild South is taking a cue from Maurice Sendak's classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are for its upcoming Wild South Weekend. There are few things altruistic citizens (monster or otherwise) love more than barbecue and good music, and Wild South has quite the adventure planned.
This nonprofit, grass-roots organization works with people of all ages to preserve forests and parks throughout the South. North Carolina initiatives include efforts to protect regional wildlife, old growth forests and local rivers.
The Wild South Weekend includes two events at Pisgah Brewing Company, including a performance by jazz saxophonist Maceo Parker on Friday and a Wild South Rumpus featuring Overflow Jug Band and Velvet Truckstop on Saturday. Local barbecue from Foothills Family Farms will be just one of the highlights of Saturday's celebration. The farm's pasture-raised beef is primarily fed Pisgah Brewing Company barley, demonstrating Wild South's commitment to the local ecosystem.
Whether you're a beast of the wild or a boy on a journey to find home, Wild South knows how to throw a party that's fit for a king.
