While the Fillmore in Charlotte might be my go-to venue for concerts in the area, its standing room layout creating a more intimate atmosphere between performer and spectator, the same could be said about the Neighborhood Theatre in NoDa. Venturing into the area right outside of Uptown Charlotte Friday for a night of dynamic pop […]

Mesmerizing Compassion with Paramore’s Tour Two

Photos by Pooja Pasupula . I’ve always made a distinction between artists: there are singers, and there are performers. Like the whole “not every rectangle is a square” line, not every performer is a singer. Going into the Ovens Auditorium, I expected Paramore to be performers: give you a good show, a lot of jumping and […]

They are best friends constantly doing tours and travelling around the world. Seems like the perfect life for a musician. I have been a big fan of Simple Plan […]

Papadosio: Thrilling Show or Just Jingly Tunes

Charlotte N.C. — The prog-rock group Papadosio played to an enthusiastic crowd late Thursday evening at the Underground here in Charlotte.

That’s where I was in visiting the Underground for Papadosio’s performance. And […]

Flow Tribe Leave Their Charlotte Audience Smiling

The Double Door Inn is a fun dive bar on a dark uptown Charlotte street. It’s small but filled to the brim with character and the friendliness of the people inside it. It’s a place that obviously has its regulars but welcomes newcomers with open arms. That’s exactly what they did with New Orleans band, […]

Wale and D.R.A.M. Illuminate Homecoming

Photos by Chris Crews and Leysha Caraballo. Watching D.R.A.M can easily be described as hanging out with your hippy uncle after a holiday party. He gives you flirting tips and gives quick pep talks, telling you to “shoot your shot” and “spread love” all while single-handedly hyping you up. D.R.A.M which stands for Does. Real. […]

UNCC Chamber Orchestra are 2-1 in performances

On Thursday I once again found myself in the third row of Robinson Hall’s Belk Theater anxiously awaiting the UNC Charlotte Chamber Orchestra. An orchestra concert seems like a silly thing to be anxious about, but both of the previous concerts I have attended were on vastly different ends of the spectrum: one concert was […]
