MUSIC: Raphael Saadiq 

Thursday, March 26

If you count tonight's show at the Whitney M. Young Jr. Awards Celebration, that makes at least three times that soul vocalist/producer Raphael Saadiq has visited Charlotte in the last 12 months. But, hey, we ain't complaining. Oakland-born, Saadiq has been thrilling audiences across the country for decades; more recently, he's been killing crowds by performing cuts from his current CD, The Way I See It -- a 1960s-flavored collection of soul tunes that garnered him multiple Grammy nominations this year. So if the dude wants to hit Charlotte and play some live versions of his new material -- or classic stuff from his time as a member of Tony! Tone! Toni! and/or Lucy Pearl -- I say let him come back every damned week! $35-$45. 9:15 p.m. Wachovia Atrium, 301 S. Tryon St. http://wmy.urbanleaguecc.org.

  • 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)
