Listen Up: Special Edition of 'Local Vibes' Discusses Bigotry and Inclusivity in CLT Music Scene

Posted on Thu, Aug 31, 2017 at 4:00 AM

For our first special episode of Creative Loafing's "Local Vibes" podcast, we filled up the studio following CL's publication of an article that confronts a disturbing image posted on FB two years ago by the frontman of a popular Charlotte band. The discussion that followed on Facebook among Charlotte musicians, as well as other recent events across the country, convinced us this was a conversation worth having, and we hope it continues around the Queen City, in music and arts scenes and beyond.
