MUSIC: KRS One at Amos' Southend 

Friday, July 10

Whenever I hear music critics or fans refer to Lil Wayne as the "greatest rapper alive," I immediately think: "Have they never heard of KRS One?" The founder and former head of Boogie Down Productions and a freestyle mastermind, KRS One has been holding down the true tenants of hip-hop since the early 1980s and, unlike a lot of old-school MCs, he's still got the skills to put the lyrical smackdown on any challenger. Trust me: If you're lucky enough to catch KRS One's show while he's in the Queen City, you'll want to erase "Lollipop" from your iTunes with a quickness. Upscale casual dresscode enforced. 21 and up. $20. 8:30 p.m. Amos' Southend, 1423 N. Tryon St. 704-377-6874.

  • 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)
