MUSIC: The Cult at Amos' Southend 

Tuesday, Sept. 8

Lead singer Ian Astbury's blood curdling wail may not quite hit the high notes it did in The Cult's prime time of the '80s. But his voice remains unmistakable and ably keeps up with guitarist Billy Duffy, who still reaches all known and unknown notes and riffs on the six strings. The band's last album, 2007's Born into This, was a worthy effort harking back to the heady days of alterna club and radio faves "Wild Flower" and "Fire Woman." The Living Things opens. 16 and up. $30-$35. 8 p.m. Amos' Southend, 1423 S. 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)
