Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, located in Asheville, North Carolina, was founded in 2007 to provide resources and life-saving programs to build a No-Kill community. As a grassroots organization, Brother Wolf believes strongly in community engagement and making it easy to adopt, volunteer and become involved in its No-Kill mission. BWAR’s No-Kill Community Development Initiative is currently working with five chapters to implement life-saving programs and build their own No-Kill communities. Celebrating 10 years, Brother Wolf will break ground in 2017 at its sanctuary location 25 minutes from Asheville. The sanctuary will be a place for people and animals to heal, as well as focus on working towards the vision of uncompromised compassion for all animals.

August 5th The Undergrowth will be throwing an event at The Pulp. (downstairs from The Orange Peel) 100% of all proceeds for this event will be donated to Brother Wolf, to go toward the rehabilitation and sheltering of Asheville's animals, and to help complete Brother Wolf's vision of a healing sanctuary located right outside of Asheville for both animals, and people. ❀

Protozoa feat. Spundose & Shanti (AVL)

2016 was a great year of growth and connection for both Wilmington's Liquid Culture and Asheville's The Undergrowth. To start off 2017, we've decided to join forces in our mission of fostering a unique Bass Music experience for the region. This month being the first of the new yearly cycle, we will be fostering the theme of PROTOZOA. That which has been given life yet just begun it's evolutionary journey. Kicking off the new year in both our home towns, we will also be converging on a new location in South Carolina. We'll have regional musical talent, Immersive VJ accompaniment, and unique Live art each night. Of course, the most important part is YOU, the main reason we facilitate these events. So bring your dancing shoes and good vibes and join us in a weekend of celebration and elevation, setting the tone for our bright future together.

Featured artists for the weekend:


Spundose is a musician/sound engineer who has been producing all original electronic music since 2010, showcasing unique psybass compositions with a honed production aesthetic. The first full length Spundose album "Setting Up A Sacred Space" was released in 2013 on Spundose has since released three albums with Street Ritual- "A
Sacred Space" (2014), "Relatives" (2016), and "Tones That We Broadcast" (2016). Also in 2016 Spundose has been featured on Wormhole Music Groups Wormcast mix series as well as winning The Untz challenge sending him on an extensive festival run this past summer.

S h a n t i

This space-bass artist has a psychedelic sound anchored by dubstep-inspired sub bass and elevated by a creative capitalization of digital production’s rapid advancements. In a postmodern culture, he’s one of many artists successfully kissing genre confines goodbye.

SOL Vibes presents The Undergrowth Takeover

  • Sol Bar at New Mountain AVL (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Undergrowth is back for another special installment of SOL Vibes. This time, catch Murkel, Midnight Willo, I: Tony Mozz :I and Water Bear at SOL Bar New Mountain AVL on July 15th.

Doors + Music at 9pm // Ages 21+ // FREE

:: Murkel ::
Nick Miller, "MURKEL", is a producer / DJ out of Raleigh, NC. Nick began his love for electronic music at an early age, thanks to his older siblings fascination of the late 90's and early 2000's music from the "RAVE" community. Fast forward to now, 2015, MURKEL has just released his first tunes and has joined such artists as Buku, Cyberoptics, DMNDZ, Kicks n Licks, Leah Culver (formerly MK Ultra), Liminal, Riven, Sirens Ceol, and ZAXX on stage. Performing at Imagine Music Festival in Atlanta, GA this year, MURKEL hopes to continue pleasing listeners and reaching larger audiences by blending styles of Dubstep, Future Bass, House, and Hybrid genres into a unique set of sounds. Be on the look out for more projects from Nick and more music from MURKEL.

:: Midnight Willo ::
Bridging the worlds of organic sound and digital synthesis, Midnight Willo’s melody-Β­driven soundscapes intertwine audio production with live instrumental improvisation. Genre influences include jazz, dub, pop, electronic, and experimental.

:: Tony Mozz ::
|: TONY MOZZ :| (born Anthony Mosiello) is an Asheville-based live looping artist that incorporates slapface rhythm, screaming saxophone, and howling synthesizers to create massive arrangements that transcend the usual solo sound.

Originally a funk bassist in Florida, Tony started the saxophonic live looping project in 2014 as a crude attempt to break the monotony of the local music scene. With a distinct blend of original music, covers in his signature style, and the fact that it’s heavily improvised, you won’t be able to look away. For reasons that you’ll soon discover.

:: Water Bear ::
Songwriters Carly Taich, Meryll Davis, and Zach Kardon created Water Bear as an ode to an unclassifiable creature. Their blend of writing styles and unordinary instrumentation (vibraphone, synthesizer, guitars and three-part harmonies) lend to a raw and drawing sound that can survive in space and water.
