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.

Women Playing Hamlet:

Wed., March 22, 8 p.m., Thu., March 23, 8 p.m., Fri., March 24, 8 p.m. and Sat., March 25, 8 p.m.

With their commitment to empowering women, Donna Scott Productions and Chickspeare have long been on the same artistic page, but this is the first time they’ve joined forces to produce a show. When an actress auditions for Ophelia, but lands the plum role of Hamlet instead, Women Playing Hamlet gives ”to be, or not to be” a new spin, questioning the roles that are expected of us vs. the ones we choose. $22

Dick Gregory

Wed., March 22, 7 p.m. and Thu., March 23, 7 p.m.

More than a half-century since hitting the comedy scene in 1961, Dick gregory continues to serve up searing social satire on topics like politics and race relations in America. Even President Bill Clinton once called him “one of the funniest people on the planet.” He’s made a name for himself as a civil rights activist, self-proclaimed conspiracy theorist and writer over the decades, and you’re sure to get a hilarious but poignant mix of all those roles at one of these two shows. $25

Jordan Casteel: Harlem Notes

Through July 8, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Spend Saturday with Jordan Casteel’s “Harlem Notes,” an exhibit of the New Yorker’s massive paintings that are colorful and fantastical, but also moody. Her detailed studies celebrate the everyday people of a Harlem that is becoming increasingly obscured by gentrification. Casteel captures, in photographic detail, the people and settings that she sees outside of her upper Manhattan studio. Free - $9

31st Annual Elizabeth Road Race

Sat., March 25, 8 a.m.

Get ready for the grandmother of all road races. It’s so big the mayor has proclaimed Saturday “Elizabeth Day,” in honor of the neighborhood that birthed it. It’s so big that Legion Brewing has named an ale for it, Big E! It’s so big you won’t find mere rappers, rockers or acoustic strummers serenading the racers — no, these racers get full-on opera (OK, actually “Xpress Opera,” but we’re splitting hairs). Spectating free; participation $10-31

Black Violin

Wed., March 22, 7:30 p.m.

At the edge of musical exploration, rap and classical collide with Black Violin. Taking their name from a swing era album by violinist Stuff Smith, classically trained musicians Kevin Sylvester (“Kev Marcus”) and Wilner Baptiste (“Wil B”) transformed themselves into this hip hop/R&B/bluegrass duo. Black Violin rock, swing, set down dope beats and use every part of their instruments – bowing, plucking and strumming their violins and violas. $20-40

SEED20 On Stage

Mon., March 27, 6:30 p.m.

Dinner, an open bar and some of the most creative people in town — not a bad way to spend a night in Charlotte. SEED20 was designed to bring folks with innovative ideas out of their creative bubbles and into the light of day. Each year, 20 nonprofit participants are coached on how to tell their creative stories. At the end, up to half of them get to pitch their ideas to judges and an audience for cash awards. Come decide what visionary will walk away with this year’s kitty. $60-85

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
