60. Hear your next favorite band in a local music venue.
Attend the Find Your Muse open mic night at the Evening Muse to see up-and-coming Charlotte talent as well as a few familiar faces. Sink down into the leather of a Cadillac bench seat while taking in live music at the Chop Shop. Enjoy the new convenience of the bar platform in the main room of the Neighborhood Theatre. Bob your head on the back patio at Jack Beagle's for a night under the stars. And when the vibe calls for something more intimate, get down and dirty in Roux! (at Boudreaux's).
