It’s being billed as the ultimate Charlotte geek fest, but we’re not here to call names. The 5th annual Hackathon will be at Discovery Place Science in Uptown. The real magic will take place in the early morning hours, but museum visitors can cheer on participants the next morning as they wrap up an overnight coding marathon, aimed at solving a business problem for a local nonprofit. Spectating free with admission.
From The Bomb Squad to The Warlocks to The LOX to D-Block and back to The LOX again, this trio has had things on lock from the jump no matter what they were calling themselves. They were perhaps at their hottest as The LOX, however, when the entire DMX-led Ruff Ryders team was at its prime, so their return to Charlotte under that moniker is only right. Come see the greatest group to ever come out of Yonkers on their Filthy America... It’s Beautiful Tour. $25
Rooftop 210 is bringing back one of the hottest trends across the nation, Silent Disco! At Silent disco, YOU get to choose which DJ's music you like best! Rather than using a traditional speaker system, live music is broadcast and picked up by specially designed wireless headphones worn by the audience. Those without headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to silence. People watching is half the fun! DJ LINE UP: DJ SODEN, DJ FISH, DJ RAGOZA Freehttps://silentdiscoparty.eventbrite.com/?aff=FL
The World is a Mirror of My Freedom was organized in response to the increasingly visible, lawful violence against Black bodies in the United States. Bringing together works from five of McColl Center’s current and alumni artists-in-residence, the exhibition explores themes of Black masculinity, social movement and mobility, revolution, and resistance. The exhibition drifts across time, from the 1700s to the future, inviting reflection on how the past has conditioned the present. The World is a Mirror of My Freedom features works by Marcus Kiser + Jason Woodberry, Shaun Leonardo, Dread Scott, and Charles Williams.
