Doors : 5:30pm

$30 - $65

All Ages


PARKING – Because New Belgium Brewing is located nearby walk-able West Asheville, the River Arts District, and Downtown, the Brewery has no dedicated onsite parking for large scale events. We encourage biking and walking to the show, as the area is very pedestrian friendly, and it’s also an easy walk from Downtown! Uber and Lyft are also encouraged and easily attainable in the Asheville area! Don’t want to do all that walking? See the next section!

FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE – There will be a free shuttle service which picks up and drops off from downtown Asheville. The pick-up location is the gravel lot located at 84 South Lexington Ave. This is around the corner from the Orange Peel and across the street from Lexington Glassworks Studio Gallery. The Aloft City Parking Garage is the closest City garage. There is NO PARKING in this gravel lot itself – it is solely for shuttle bus loading and unloading. FREE shuttles will begin running from this lot at 5:00pm, and will run approximately every 15 to 20 minutes until 9:00pm, to take passengers to the concert at New Belgium. Shuttles will return to Downtown from NBB starting at 9:30pm through 11:00pm.

We ask in advance for your patience regarding shuttles – as those who attend large sporting events or festivals know, some wait time and lines are to be expected when the show is over. We will do our best to get you to and from the show as quickly and efficiently as possible.

For those taking the shuttle or walking from downtown, parking is available in various public lots in Downtown Asheville, as well as in street parking metered spaces, which is free after 6pm.

Formed in 2010 in Geelong, fifty miles outside of Melbourne (where they now reside) as a jam band off-shoot of a variety of other projects, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard released their debut album 12 Bar Bruise in 2012. Currently the most productive band on the planet, they are a once-in-generation group who play a heady combination of psychedelia, prog rock, freakbeat, jazz, heavy metal and Krautrock at a breathless punk pace; theirs is a high-velocity sound, each album a transportative diversion down a slippery worm-hole steered by seven minds sharing one on-going journey. Those who have seen them live will attest that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard can go toe-to-toe with any of their forefathers; Aphrodite’s Child, Mahivishnu Orchestra, Hawkwind, King Crimson, The Doors, 13th Elevators, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Amon Duul II.

As promised at the beginning of the year, King Gizzard successfully released an unprecedented five studio albums in 2017 with the release of Gumboot Soup arriving this past New Year’s Eve. 2017’s other previous four records – February’s Flying Microtonal Banana, June’s Murder of the Universe, August’s Sketches of Brunswick East and November’s Polygondwanaland – have all received individual critical acclaim and set the stage for the next dizzying chapter in the band’s career.

In years to come King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be judged not by their separate albums, but by a body of work where themes, melodies, motifs, riffs and ideas resurface and recur, each album peeling back a layer of the onion to glimpse at past and future alike.
