While it typically takes bands a few songs to get warmed up, Dispatch had no problem hitting its stride just moments into the band's first song. With an audience full of backup singers, the indie-roots band fed off the crowd and cruised through a lengthy set of 18 songs. Look, we can't tell you why Dispatch isn't a household name, but a large Charlotte crowd could give you plenty of reasons to give them a listen. The band found plenty of moments to let loose for jams, spurring on the summer night. It was one that started with a short set by ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro. Guster's lackluster set was satisfying for fans and spotlighted by the band's efforts to get the crowd involved - including a brief jaunt into the crowd to take some selfies and swig some beer. The night, however, belonged to Dispatch.
