Welcome to Press Play

Know how everybody remembers exactly where they were when they heard Michael Jackson died? You probably didn’t expect that to feel like such an important moment for you to remember, what with all the things we forget on a daily basis, from where you left your car keys to your partner’s birthday to how long you need to keep your pasta boiling to get that perfect al dente.
I’ve cooked pasta about eight million times and Michael Jackson died only once, yet my brain still chooses to remember this one moment so vividly (I’m not alone on this, right?).
Here’s the point: get ready to remember this moment for the rest of your life. Welcome to Press Play, a weekly newsletter dedicated to Western North Carolina, specifically the Asheville, Waynesville, Brevard, Hendersonville areas.
We’ll keep you informed on all the interesting goings on, from music and shows to restaurants to the great outdoors to jobs to infinity and beyond. We’ll be dedicated to affordable, off-the-beaten-path events and happenings, with a focus on local business.
We will also have a focus on local news. It’s too easy to not pay attention to what’s going on in the area, national news is so much flashier. We think you’ll find that the news we publish and link to other websites is relevant and thought-provoking.
WNC is such a culturally rich area with strong ties to the past and a fresh focus on the future. We wish to celebrate that.
Look for us in your inbox every Thursday, and we’d love to hear any feedback on your favorite pieces and recurring sections. Let’s make something cool together. We won’t stop ‘til you get enough.
