Re: “Goodyear Arts Gets New Coat of 'Wet Paint'

Unfortunately, Goodyear has been showing the same art from the same people for it's entire existence. It's much more like a private art club than a public art space. In their enormous new space at Camp North End, they could only fill a small part with their chosen artists...which is a shame. There are so many really good artists in Charlotte that need exposure that it's too bad Goodyear is receiving city money to support so few of them.

Also, the theme of the show "Wet Paint" didn't seem to have much relationship with the show itself.

Re: “Osiris Rain Battles Heatstroke and a Broken Ankle to Complete NoDa Mural

And there sir you are wrong. Osiris is highly regarded in the neighborhood and outdates most as a resident. Come on down and bad mouth him and it's likely you how will get a beer, poured on your head. FYI that wall will be free in 6 months and there's many more in NoDa. If you or any business wants to step up and support local artists, you can have your very own wall as could they. My message? Step up or keep your jabs to yourself.

Re: “Osiris Rain Battles Heatstroke and a Broken Ankle to Complete NoDa Mural

Stella Artois isn't a "brewing company". It's one of many brands sold by AB-InBev, the world's largest beer company and one dedicated to squashing independent breweries such as the ones in the NoDa neighborhood. Mr. Rain may have to eat, but I doubt if any NoDa residents are anxious to buy him a (real) beer.

Re: “Perry Tannenbaum Looks Back on His Love/Hate Affair With Charlotte Theater

Perry is a hoot. And yes, he does a lot for the theatre community in Charlotte. I enjoy seeing him and his wife (and sometimes, friends) at COTU shows, when we get one running. Which, by the way Pat, COTU isn't closed down/shuttered. I'm just not there running it. There's shows coming up with the new ladies running the ship- Mandy Kendall and Courtney Varnum. Plus, I'm already planning a show for 2018 as I your the US with COTU productions. I fully hope Perry is out there to take notes and write about it and every other happening that's going on!
-Cartee.

Ps- I hope you come out as well and give the threadbare another shot.

Re: “48 Hour Film Project Producers Aim To Put Charlotte on the Map

I'd like to correct the photo credit for the fight scene image: this picture was taken by middle-schooler Che' Spiotti, who starred in his first film on my team last year. I am on the left setting a light diffuser. You can see Che' in the 48 Hour Film "Little Rock" created by team Film Dojo. Thank you for the coverage of local filmmakers!

Re: “Perry Tannenbaum Looks Back on His Love/Hate Affair With Charlotte Theater

I worked with Perry at the Loaf for a few years back in the Dark Ages. I was frankly amazed (and remain so) that such a small weekly paper in little ol' Charlotte had such a first-rate theater critic. He blew away the Observer in terms of his knowledge, wit, talent, insight and knack for writing memorable lines that would leave me wetting myself with laughter.
I always wondered why he wasn't up in New York writing for the Village Voice or New York magazine. But what the hell, every burg deserves its diamond in the rough.
Oh, and he gets bonus points for being a jazz fan.

Re: “Brian Heffron Has Kept Charlotteans Laughing for Decades, They Just Don't Know It

Heff is one of the hardest working people in comedy show biz, I have known this since 1991 when we first met
I knew he cared about making a big difference in the comedy world, and his hard work would pay off someday and it did! Congrats my old friend, and thanks for treating me with respect when I was a nobody.

Re: “In the streets: Brass Connection

Brass connection band is a fraud - I booked them for a party and not only did they not show up but no one even bothered to call to let me now.  And now they are giving me the run around to give me my deposit back.  DO NOT BOOK THIS  BAND.  They are dishonest

Re: “In the streets: Brass Connection

I feel that they are not loyal people. I know for a fact that the steal others intruments and either play them or sell them. They break into people's cars and damage their personal belongings. They have been doing this for a while and this is not fair to those who use their instruments for good purposes. They should not have the privilage to play down town at all. They sound horrible and they are getting people's money instead of making an honest living. I know that once of the members has been arrested twice. They should not be downtown at anytime playing anything. Its sad to know that people work everyday and for those to steal them and play like they are innocent. I agree with the individual who wrote the review above. We can do with out them. They have this ignorant attitude like they are band members of Earth Wind and Fire or apart of the Gap band or something. They need a permit to be on these streets or something. They are terrible. And the band mangaer has many Alias.. whoa... smh.. too shady to post his real name. We all know who he is. oh well.. you have the man to answer to on judgement day for your actions.****PLEASE WATCH YOUR CARS*****

Re: “In the streets: Brass Connection

The worst thing to happen to downtown Charlotte. I normally encourage and support street performers. But this group has a habit of being outside any venue I attend (Blumenthal, Knight Theater, Spirit Square, etc.) waiting for patrons to exit. They are so loud and in my face, they destroy any mood I might have coming out of a performance. It shows no respect for the attendees. If I come downtown to hear or see a great show, I don't want my reflection shattered by a bunch of loud, over the top, ego-driven musicians with no regard to their potential audience. If I ran a venue, I would have them removed from the front if performances were scheduled that evening. They could be anywhere downtown and be loud enough that everyone would know where they are if inclined to go listen to them.
