Local hardcore and thrash outfit Just Die! was voted best punk band three years in a row by Xpress
readers. The quartet (vocalist Steve Shell, drummer Dave Reinhardt, Jay McBones on bass and guitarist Matt Evans) posted this simple Facebook bio: "Encouraging High Fives Since '06." Those happy high fives will be missed: The band has also posted a tombstone on that same Facebook page, along with a final show date. "Seven years of bad luck come to an end," they joke about that last hurrah at The Odditorium. Send the band out in style on Saturday, Sept. 28. Fairground Avenue (reunion show), The Rice Cakes, Drunk in a Dumpster and Suicidal Crack Babies (last show) also perform. 7 p.m., $5. ashevilleodditorium.com. Photo by Angela Owens
