Michael Franti & Spearhead tonight (Aug. 31)

Posted By on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 8:58 AM

MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD Ask Michael Franti and I'm sure he'll tell you — it's not a tour unless you hit some cities off the beaten path as well as the majors. The Sound of Sunshine Tour brings him to Charlotte by way of Atlanta and Vegas, sure, but the band didn't leave out towns in places like Montana and Idaho on the way. $26, Neighborhood Theatre, www.neighborhoodtheatre.com (Mike McCray)

Here's a look at his new video for "The Sound of Sunshine""

Video: 9th Wonder In-Studio With Big K.R.I.T.

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 4:34 PM

North Carolina super producer 9th Wonder got a chance to get in-studio with rising Mississippi MC/producer, Big K.R.I.T. recently and thankfully Jonny Shipes was there to record his reaction to hearing the his song, "Children of the World" and "Something" from the mixtape, K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. (Thus far, my album of the year).

9th also explained his theory that the type of hip hop he came up with skipped a generation before it was appreciated again. Kinda interesting.

It's Real: Justin Bieber, Raekwon & Kanye West

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 4:34 PM

Twitter is making previously unbelievable remixes happen in real life.

Teen idol Justin Bieber can thank the magic Twitter machine for the remix to his single, "Runaway Love" which features Raekwon (Yes, the one from the Wu-Tang Clan) and Kanye West.

The song leaked today on HipHopConnection.com, click here to hear it.

Bieber already had a strangle hold on the 'burbs, let's see what happens when the streets starts rockin' with him. I never thought I'd say that.

CL All-Access: XV (Video)

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Have you ever met one of those people that's just refreshing? Like how many rappers want their music to sound like, "if John Hughes made beats," sample The Pixies and cite Weezer as their major influence? Not many. I got a chance to catch up with the newest Warner Bros. recording artist, XV, moments after he finished his set at Tremont Music Hall on Aug. 18 and talked about his first record deal (less than 2 weeks after he signed it), the journey there and what's in store.

KISS and Juliette Lewis tonight (Aug. 28)

Posted By on Sat, Aug 28, 2010 at 10:58 AM

KISS You can't ever have enough farewell tours. The make-up laden rock stars visit the Q.C. one more time with a slightly different line-up. Gone are original guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss, and as far as Gene Simmons is concerned — easily replaced by Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. A Kiss fanatic should still relish the thought of seeing Simmons pound his ax-like bass guitar through "God of Thunder" and Paul Stanley shake his old hips and stratocaster while belting out "Detroit Rock City." The simplistic and overplayed "Rock 'n' Roll All Night" will inevitably be played as well, whether fans want to hear it or not. $36.50 and up, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, www.livenation.com (Chris Triplett)




JULIETTE LEWIS More often than not, it's hard to take Hollywood types seriously when they venture into the music world. Not the case with Juliette Lewis. Imagine the raw energy of her characters taken into the spotlight on stage, her gruff voice intact in all of its howling glory. Lewis used to rock with her band The Licks, but these days, she's getting billed solo. Who cares — if you're headed to the show, it's Lewis you want to see, regardless of who's backing her up. Get ready, this is no act. $32, Don Gibson Theatre, Shelby, www.dgshelby.com (Jeff Hahne)
