MUSIC: Clarence Carter 

Saturday, Jan. 24

Soul-blues musician Clarence Carter was born blind, but he hasn't let it stop him from being an ongoing melody-making machine. His big break in the music industry went down during the 1960s and '70s, when he cranked out hits like "Slip Away," "Patches," and "Strokin," but even since then he hasn't let up. Keep your eyes (and ears!) peeled for him, as he'll make his way to the Q.C. tonight for a performance at McGlohon Theatre, dubbed appropriately "Uptown Blues." Mac Arnold and Plate Full O' Blues to open. $35-$50. 8 p.m. McGlohon Theatre, 345 N. College St. 704-372-1000.

  • 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)
