get pumped up by "Pumped Up Kicks," that viral dance song by L.A.-based pop band Foster the People? The trio was formed by Mark Foster, who found little success as a commercial jingle writer but reached No. 1 on the Billboard alternative chart with that single from Foster the People's 2011 debut, Torches
. The band hasn't been touring in the last year while at work on a sophomore album, but it’s making a special stop in Asheville on the way to the Firefly Festival in Delaware. Though there are no plans for any more shows in the near future, the group will
play a few new songs at the U.S. Cellular Center on Friday, June 21. 8 p.m. $45.70 with fees. http://www.ticketmaster.com. Photo by Andy Barron
