THEATER: Basic Training 

Thursday, Oct. 14

Kahlil Ashanti returns to Charlotte for a third round of his one-man show, Basic Training. The show is based off of true experiences — his time in the army, serving as a member of the U.S. Air Force's entertainment troupe Tops in Blue and his quest to find his biological father. Ashanti plays the parts of 23 very different characters, from a crazy foul-mouthed drill sergeant to a sweet abused mother. Show contains adult language and content. $20 and up. Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m.; Oct. 15-16, 8 p.m.; Oct. 17, 3 p.m.; Oct. 19-21, 7:30 p.m.; Oct. 22-23, 8 p.m.; Oct. 24, 3 p.m. Stage Door Theater, corner of 5th Street and College Street. 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)
