Some sad news from one of Asheville’s favorite music venues. Salvage Station shared in an Instagram post that the NCDOT is acquiring the property through eminent domain to build out the I-26 Connector project, and the venue must vacate its property at 466 Riverside Dr. at the end of 2024.

Despite losing its current property, it’s not the end for the live music locale. Salvage Station shared in the same post that it plans to relocate and rebuild, saying, “Where we go is unknown, but for sure, if a salvage yard can become a nationally recognized music venue, we will certainly figure out this next chapter.”

You can support the space by buying tickets for its lineup of shows through the end of the year. There’s something for everyone, from bluegrass to hip-hop to jam bands, so go snag those spots. And follow along for updates on the next chapter.
