UNC Charlotte's 41st Annual International Festival

Sat., Sept. 24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
phone 704-687-0882
international@uncc.edu

Every year during UNC-Charlotte’s International Festival we remember that it’s a small world after all. That’s because crowds of cultures and countries are represented. You’ll find booths that have been transformed into colorful marketplaces and displays, alongside grills and sternos filled with savory grub. Come hungry and leave full. But be warned, this festival does stir up the travel bugs. For more information and a detailed performance schedule, visit http://ifest.uncc.edu. Free

Stand Against HB2 - North Carolina Musicians United for Equality NC

Sat., Sept. 24, 12 p.m.

This grass-roots concert series was launched back in May in Saxapaw, NC and will conclude on November 6th at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, but you’ll have a chance show your support for human rights and hear some excellent music from tarheel musicians including Jon Lindsay, Alternative Champs, The Loudermilks, Dust & Ashes, The Eyebrows, Rapper Shane and many more. The eclectic line-up drives home the point that opposing discriminatory laws is essential to all North Carolinians, and not just the LGTBQ community. $15-$20

Queen City Anthology

Sat., Sept. 24, 6-9:30 p.m.

Whether they know him or not, Charlotte music fans know Daniel Coston’s work. The local photog is just there, all the time. Ok, maybe not all the time, but if you go to concerts regularly then you’ve spotted him. With that said, he’s built up quite a catalogue of photographs of bands and musicians over the years. This photography retrospective showcases some of the ones he took in the ‘90s and beyond, many never before seen. Free admission

Forlorn Strangers & Old Salt Union

Sat., Sept. 24, 9 p.m.

This Nashville-based Americana quintet offers a blend of folk, country and bluegrass with strong harmonies laid overtop. Guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin and bass provide the Appalachian atmosphere, but it’s the group’s vocalizations that provide the depth to the music. The band keeps it upbeat while their voices blend into one. The band’s debut album, Bottom of the Barrel, was released in August. $10-$12

Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche

Through Sept. 24

If the title doesn’t sound tantalizing enough, here’s another reason to get a taste of this comedy. In this play, five chatty women are disclosing their deepest secrets to one another during a breakfast ceremony turned impending atomic bomb threat. You’ll feel like a fly on the wall. This humor-filled production was the winner for “Best Overall Production” at the NYC International Fringe Festival. $15-$20

Shakespeare in the Parking Lot

Sat., Sept. 24, 7 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 25, 2 p.m.

The ladies of Chickspeare are presenting one of Bard’s silliest comedies, Comedy of Errors. It’s all about identical twins who are separated at birth and end up in the same place, causing a series of mistaken identities and subsequent retailiation against folks who are uninformed of who is actually who. Grab a beer and relax. This makes your sibling problems seem minor. $20

Kaleo feat. Bishop Briggs, The Wind + The Wave

Tue., Sept. 27, 8 p.m.

This Icelandic folk-rock quartet is also inspired by the blues, as evidenced by their hit single, “Way Down We Go.” The band’s show at the Whitewater Center a few months back was canceled, so this will be their Charlotte premiere. Be sure to get their early for the stunning songcrafting of Bishop Briggs. Her album hasn’t been released yet, but the strength of her first singles has gotten her opening slots on the summer’s hottest tours.

The Struts

Wed., Sept. 28, 8:30 p.m.

The Struts are the latest in a long line of England-based glam-rock bands. The music’s based off of big guitar riffs and the enthusiastic performance of frontman/singer Luke Spiller. The band’s hit single, “Kiss This,” has a familiarity to it that makes it perfect for a sweaty rock club singalong. I’d expect to see them in a bigger room the next time around. $18

It’s also the debut of Sharon Dowell’s “A City on its Side,” a controversial mural (with a familiar face: CL contributor Lara Americo) created as a response to HB2. Jackson and Dowell will speak at the reception. Free

Hannibal Buress

Fri., Jan. 20, 8 p.m.

RESCHEDULED: Following up on last year’s “Comedy Camisado Tour” in Charlotte, Hannibal Burress is back with the “Hannibal Montanabel Experience.” The comic started to get shine as Ilana’s sort-of boyfriend on Broad City, but he’s built his own name up and become one of the nation’s most popular stand-up acts since. He’s come a long way from sleeping on the train in Chicago between stand-up gigs during his come-up. $25 and up
