Abari One-Year Birthday

Sat., March 25, 2 p.m.
,

“Round 1 ... Ready ... Party!” Charlotte’s first bar arcade has made it through that milestone first year, so it’s time to throw down. Their first birthday celebration will feature an outdoor arcade; a pop-up market, grub from food trucks like Mel’s BLT Kitchen; and live music from some of Charlotte’s best bands, including Junior Astronomers, The Eyebrows and Modern Primitives. Who would have thought gaming could be so cool? That’s right, Abari did. Funds raised go to the North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue. $5 suggested donation.

Back 2 The 80s

Sat., March 25, 8 p.m.

If we were going back to the ’80s in our fantasies, we might choose a stronger lineup: Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, L.L. Cool J, Stetsasonic, Eric B. & Rakim, Queen Latifah. . . Ah, but this isn’t a fantasy concert and we’re not booking it. Besides, you won’t go wrong with the real lineup at this hip-hop nostalgia show: Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Force MDs, Al B. Sure! and a few others. Just remember: It was better than this back in the day. $39-103

Pierre Bensusan

Sat., March 25, 8 p.m.

A handful of fleet-fingered acoustic guitar slingers excel at classical, jazz, North African or Celtic styles. French-Algerian guitarist Pierre Bensusan plays them all in a fluid and playful blend of traditional and improvisational music that defies categories. Bensusan augments his nimble picking and sensual strumming with genre-jumping bilingual vocals that fuse whistling with resonant low notes. It’s international music for a hopeful future – a soundtrack for a world without borders. $22-25

Paint Fumes

Tue., March 28, 9 p.m.

After singer Elijah von Cramon was struck by a car and severely injured in 2013, it looked like Paint Fumes would be sidelined, perhaps permanently. Like a garage-rock Phoenix, they rebounded with their snarling vocals, grimy guitars and reverbed thrash aesthetic derived from the classic punk rock compilation Nuggets intact and undimmed. Their sophomore release, If It Ain’t Paint Fumes It Ain’t Worth a Huff is available on “Puke Swirl” multi-color Starburst vinyl. $5-7
