Above & Beyond

Sat., Feb. 28


English trance trio Above & Beyond — Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki -— consistently rank in the upper echelon of those top DJ polls. They sold out Madison Square Garden last fall, so it’s no surprise they’re packing the house here, too. These guys separate themselves from the typical DJ pack by writing actual songs before they become the electronic versions, as evidenced by their recent acoustic tour and album. (Jeff Hahne)

Dickey Betts & Great Southern

Sat., May 23


Best known as a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Dickey Betts’ guitar playing is clearly his calling card. Constantly on those “top guitarist” lists, Betts and Duane Allman set the standard for dual guitar tones in early Allmans songs. The on-again-off-again relationship with the ABB is a story of its own. The draw here is Betts and his guitar playing — though there’ll be plenty of ABB songs covered on stage. (Jeff Hahne)

Donna The Buffalo

Fri., Feb. 27


Fronted by talented multi-instrumentalist/singer Tara Nevins, Donna the Buffalo has built a strong following on the East Coast thanks to tunes that wander to and from the genre overlaps of jam band rock, bluegrass and Americana. This show wraps up a fall/winter tour for the group that began in November. Closing nights are always fun to witness when you can. (Jeff Hahne)

Fri., Feb. 27


I can remember being in college in the summer of 1994 and blasting Betty with my windows rolled down, cruising to my next class. From the opening splashes of “Wilma’s Rainbow” to the underwater-sounding vocals of “Biscuits for Smut” and the crushing rhythms of “Milquetoast,” Helmet put a new stamp on metal for me. For this tour, they’re playing the entire album live, followed by a second set of Helmet favorites. (Jeff Hahne)

Katt Williams

Sat., Feb. 28, 8 p.m.

In 2014, Katt Williams popped up frequently in the news due to camera theft allegations. Luckily the comedian seems to have avoided the slammer, as his current “Born Again … Again” tour is slated to stop by Charlotte. This potty-mouthed perm addict uses animated gestures and biting wit in his standup act. Drugs, sex, pimping and wool socks with the little ducks on them are all fair game during his upcoming act at Bojangles’ Coliseum. (Kaila Burtch) $62-$150

Krispy Kreme Race - Run 4 Reading

Sat., Feb. 28, 8 a.m.

“One hour, four miles, and 12 doughnuts” sums up this challenge. The run consists of a 4-mile loop and participants must scarf down a dozen doughnuts before racing back to the finish line. Oh, and never fear: Event organizers promise plenty of “doughnut dumps” — aka trash cans — in case those sugary rounds need to be regurgitated. Can’t handle the caloric overload? There’s a run-only option, too. For more information, visit

Lights, X Ambassadors

Mon., March 2


Canadian electropop singer-songwriter Lights’ most notable single, “Drive My Soul,” brought her numerous Best New Artist awards in her native land back in 2009. The singer has a continuous and rapidly growing fan base leaving her playing countless sold-out gigs, as well as numerous music festivals in the U.K. and U.S. After taking a short hiatus after having a baby, Lights is back and stronger then ever. Motherhood seems to have rejuvenated her creativity. In regard to her 2014 album, Little Machines, she says, “I wound up making what I think is the best thing I’ve ever done.” (Nichole Monshein)

The Monday Night All Stars



What: For roughly two decades, the Monday Night Allstars have given people a great reason to get out of the house early in the week. Filled with soul, rock and plenty of talent, the musicians who make up this group are some of Charlotte’s finest. The recent departure of guitarist Dustin Hofsess led to the return of Joe Lindsay. Others include Jim Brock, Chris Allen, Rick Blackwell, Ziad Rabie and Shana Blake. (Jeff Hahne)

Fourth and Second Thursday of every month, 5-8 p.m.

Sounds tasty! Held at the corner of 15th and North Davidson streets. For more information, visit (Anita Overcash) Free admission

Pile, Radiator King, Black Market, Motel Glory

Tue., March 3

Pile If unpolished, rough around the edges, weird, emotion-driven post-hardcore rock is what you look for on the average night out, the Milestone should be on your radar for this show. Boston quartet Pile has risen from the depths of Boston’s underground scene to make what some call “feel-bad” rock ’n’ roll. The band’s latest, You’re Better Than This, is being released this day, as well. (Jeff Hahne)
