Ben Lovett has a habit of going big. From his free record release at The Grey Eagle last year to the epic Ghost of Old Highways project, the rocker/composer/producer/multi-iinstrumentalist has a penchant for flare. Last week, Xpress dropped by the Masonic Temple to check out the set of his latest video, "Black Curtain." (Photo by Bill Rhodes)
Lovett's debut album, Highway Collection, was released last spring. Since then, the producer/composer/bandleader has been hard at work producing and starring in videos for each of the record's nine tracks. Along the way, one of those projects took on a life of its own and eventually morphed into a free-standing short film, complete with its own score, photography exhibit and art show. On Wednesday, Lovett brings that epic multimedia smorgasbord to Asheville with an equally epic presentation that spans three venues across downtown Asheville. Xpress sat down with the artist at Echo Mountain to discuss the project.
This Friday, Push Skateshop & Gallery (25 Patton Ave) presents Neon Heathens, a local artist showcase curated by painter Gabriel Shaffer. The show opens at 7 p.m. and features pieces from Andy Herod, Michael Hsuing, Shaffer himself, along with Nicolas Pecoraro, Shawn Oldham, Nathanael Roney, Heironymous and Jesse Reno. Xpress' Nathanael Roney will do a poetry reading and Ben Lovett will provide the tunes.
