* Best Concert of the Past 12 Months

"He's done more than one in the last 12 months, but Justin Fedor has been bringing bands together for a cause, similar to what Drums for Cures does. It's not just putting bands on stage, but putting together fun combinations. It creates a new flavor of music while benefitting the Levine Children's Hospital."

* Best Lunch

"Providence Sundries is a few blocks from home and the office, so there's convenience, but it's casual and open. It's my go-to place because I can expect regularity. I get fed well with consistency."

* Best Sushi

"I want good food, but I'm also looking for atmosphere and friendliness. The guys at Pisces literally embrace you when you walk in. I don't only go there because they support DrumStrong. They support a variety of local causes which gives depth to their business."

* Local Issue That Needs More Attention

"We waste water left and right. Has anyone else noticed that we're in a drought? Environmental issues are important to me. I haven't delved into businesses that are on the good/bad side of it, but I can walk down the street and see yards that don't need to be watered. I take issue with waste."

* Best Weekend Getaway

"I love the Linville area for camping. That and the Grandfather Mountain area. I've got friends up that way and it's just gorgeous. There's also a great artist community in Celo."

  • 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)
