ART: Something Like a Fahamenon 

Saturday, Sept. 11

Visual artist Fahamu Pecou — the first artist in residence for the Harvey Gantt Center for African-American Art + Culture (and the subject of a recent Creative Loafing cover story) — is set to launch his Q.C. debut with the event Something Like a Fahamenon. Billed as a '90s jam, the one-night event — featuring music by Atlanta-based DJ Salah Ananse — is part party and part art education effort. According to Pecou, Fahamenon is designed to make "the institution of art accessible to diverse audiences through music, culture and a party atmosphere." So, be sure to bring your dancing shoes — and wear your favorite 1990s-era clothes. 21 and up. $8-$15. 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, 551 S. Tryon St. 704-547-3700.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
