Circle K Speed Street Presented by Coca-Cola

Circle K Speed Street Presented by Coca-Cola

May 25-27, 12-11 p.m.

Remember when you could go to Speed Street and see Cheap Trick or Joan Jett, or watch Rose Royce do “Car Wash”? No? Well, there was a time. Granted, it was all about nostalgia back then, but some of it was quality nostalgia. Now, it’s mostly about new pop-country, and if that’s your thing, then Speed Street is where you’ll want to be when dudes like Jake Owen and Billy Currington hit the stages Uptown. (There is a performance by DJ Jazzy Jeff, and well, he’s not exactly pop-country.) Free-$25

Okilly Dokilly, Beatallica

Okilly Dokilly, Beatallica

Fri., May 26, 8 p.m.
704-942-7997

Last week, Charlotte hosted Sabaton’s battle metal, which turns military campaigns into power rock. Now we get the yin to battle metal’s yang with Okilly Dokilly’s “Nedal,” diminished fifths devoted to Ned Flanders, The Simpsons’ uber-geeky Christian neighbor. Credit Okilly Dokilly’s with a killer gimmick. They became a viral sensation just on the strength of their nerdy press photos! Openers Beatallica mash-up the Fab Four with Metallica, insuring a full evening of ear-bleeding weirdness. $12-15

Old School Adult Board Game Night

Old School Adult Board Game Night

Sat., May 27, 6-10 p.m.
704-371-7079

Twenty-somethings are not welcome! Apparently, you have to be 30 years old or older to attend this nostalgic night full of board games that will include Scrabble, Spades, Jenga, Twister, Connect Four, Taboo and Dirty Minds. So this gave us an idea: if you’re in your late 20s and want to feel young again, go to this event and get turned away at the door due to your youth. It will be like therapy for your quarter-life crisis. $10-15

Kehlani

Kehlani

Sun., May 28, 8 p.m.
704-549-5555

The last year has been one of recovery for Kehlani, after online abuse following her break-up with Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving in early 2016 led to her attempting suicide. So it’s understandable that fans have been anxious to show up and support the SweetSexySavage artist, and they became only more antsy when she delayed her scheduled Fillmore show in April at the last minute. No fear, however, it was just a few weeks, and now she’s back. Sold out.

Leif Vollebeck

Leif Vollebeck

Tue., May 30, 8 p.m.
704-376-3737

With his 2013 album North Americana, Canadian folk artist Leif Vollebekk crafted one of that year’s finest albums of any genre, a lo-fi Valentine to young Americans which tumbled through New Orleans gospel, juke-joint ballads, and fragile folk. Vollebekk’s vision is sprawling, yet specific, capturing the essence of a failed love affair with the image of a woman glimpsed through a barroom window. His latest, Twin Solitude, fattens his sound with harp and synthesizer without compromising his restless vision. $22-25
