Speed Street announces 2015 performers

Posted By on Thu, Apr 16, 2015 at 9:47 AM

It wasn't too long ago that Speed Street was getting some pretty big names to headline their free Uptown festival, with multiple bands on multiple stages. Well, that was then ...

The 600 Festival Association announced the performers for this year's Circle K and Kangaroo Speed Street (the new sponsors were announced earlier this week), and I can't imagine people are going to get overly excited for this year's options. Maybe it's just me? What are your thoughts?

Thursday, May 21
8:30 p.m. - Appetite for Destruction, the Ultimate Guns & Roses Experience
10:30 p.m. - Departure, a Journey tribute band

Friday, May 22
9 p.m. - Parmalee
10:30 p.m. - Corey Smith

Saturday, May 23
9 p.m. - Craig Wayne Boyd (winner of The Voice)
10:30 p.m. - Dennis DeYoung and the music of Styx

Well, at least there are still games to play and NASCAR drivers to meet. A PNC Speed Street 5K will also be held on May 23.

Fridays at the Factory, other concert announcements

Posted By on Mon, Apr 13, 2015 at 11:23 AM

We've been a bit critical of the Fridays at the Factory lineups in the past as they've leaned toward a rotating cast of '90s one-hit wonders and hesitated from pushing the envelope... so we have to give credit to those in charge for stepping up their game for this year's edition.

From South Carolina folk duo Shovels & Rope to sacred steel jammers Robert Randolph and the Family Band to Southern rockers North Mississippi Allstars, Friday Live at the Factory is ready to leave their mark on the summer concert season. The schedule is:

May 8 - Robert Randolph and the Family Band with Chris Cook and the Heartless Road Band
May 15 - Who's Band, The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band
May 22 - Cracker with Temperance League
May 29 - Misterwives
June 5 - Shovels and Rope with Flatland Tourists
June 12 - North Mississippi Allstars with The Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project
June 19 - Cowboy Mouth with Of Good Nature
June 26 - Surfer Blood with The Black Cadillacs

Advance tickets are $8 and a season pass is $50.

Other recently announced concerts include:

* Shinedown with Nothing More at Ovens Auditorium (?) on July 29. Tickets on sale Friday, April 17.

* Counting Crows with Citizen Cope and Hollis Brown at the Uptown Amphitheatre on Aug. 10. Tickets on sale Friday, April 17.

* Sublime with Rome (more like Sublime's bassist with some other guys...) with Rebelution, Pepper and Mickey Avalon at the Uptown Amphitheatre on Aug. 11. Tickets on sale Monday, April 20.

A Silent Film to perform somewhere in Charlotte

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2015 at 4:07 PM

A Silent Film has announced its Secret Rooms Tour, which includes a date in Charlotte on May 8. Here's the catch — the U.K.-based alt-rock duo hasn't announced where the show will take place... and that's kinda the point.

The Secret Rooms Tour is a series of intimate shows taking place in nontraditional venues around the country. Fans will need to go online between now and March 4 to register to purchase tickets.

The band will play new music as well as fan favorites and there will also be photo, autograph and conversation opportunities with the band throughout the night. Those who purchase tickets will also get their name in the new EP's liner notes, receive a signed poster from their show and a copy of the EP, New Year, when it's available on April 21.

Tickets for the event are $100 with a second ticket available for $50.
