Re: “Music Issue 2011: Meet the promoters fueling Charlotte's eclectic music landscape

Hello concerned music lovers,

We have a anti bullying music & gaming festival called JNFE Fest 2013 coming to the Rockingham Speedway on July 25th, 26th & 27th. The festival will showcase 300 indie music artists from around the world and especially North Carolina & South Carolina. We encourage ALL Charlotte, Greensboro, Asheville, Raleigh, Fayettsville, Columbia & Myrtle Beach bands to send us their Reverbnation or YouTube links (Our indie music Partner) to for a chance to get on one of our 7 major stages.

This anti bullying festival (JNFE Fest) bridges gaming tournaments with live indie music performances, festival games, counseling tents, food & beverage vendors, EDM tents & Social Media lounges to help bring bullied victims together to open up a dialogue about how to stop this bullying epidemic.
Check out the festival site here:

*Lineup to be announced (and believe us, they're some great talent!)

Check out Buckshots in Salisbury. Find them on Facebook. They has bands from Arizona this weekend and alot of local live music. NOT Brittany! LOL Awesome music at a good price in a smaller crowd of 100-200. They advertise on 106.5 sunday nights trying to focus on the local musicians with the great original music. From Salisbury? Its about time a venue happened there!

Gregg McCraw/MaxxMusic works extremely hard to bring in the best acts possible, as do the others. There are a lot of great bands out there that DO come through Charlotte, who sometimes are selling out venues all over the country, but unfortunately, not always filling the rooms in Charlotte. There are not enough music fans it seems in Charlotte who are either willing to come out to hear lesser known or unknown bands/musicians, or have the interest to see live music at all. Look through You may not know some or many of the acts, but rest assured they are some of the best "unknowns" touring the country right now, in various genres. And Gregg is right on top of getting them here. Charlotte's track record (or radio promotion) has not been the greatest, unfortunately, so a lot of those larger, indie bands turn us down. It's not for lack of trying. Promoters are trying all the time.

Re: “Music Issue 2011: Meet the promoters fueling Charlotte's eclectic music landscape

Mind Elixir is the only promoter I've seen to truly PROMOTE his genre. Acts like Bassnectar and Skrillex have put Charlotte on the Bass map. But what's the problem with Indie Rock??? In the last 6-9 months bands such as Sleigh Bells, Deathcab for Cutie, Blind Bilot, Chad Stokes, Mutemath, Lykke Li, etc, have all come through North Carolina, and not a single one has made a stop in Charlotte. Mumford didn't come to NC at all when they were on tour last year.
Why is this? Are the bands snubbing Charlotte for some reason? We have a heavy population of music thirsty imports, and beautiful venues of all types and size. What gives? Or are the promoters so overly focused on the local scene and big name tickets (Kid Rock? Britney Spears??? Give me a BREAK) that we aren't working on bringing in the fresh, new, out of state talent? If that's the case, shame on us. Our local bands will never make the connections, get the inspiration or truly thrive if we keep them in a Charlotte bubble. I am tired of driving to Raleigh or Asheville to get my live music fix!!! Promoters, PLEASE make me proud of Charlotte's music scene!!! Okay, rant over. :)
