Chvrches ups the energy

Chvrches, Lo Moon
The Fillmore
Oct. 16, 2018

Good lighting is nice. The sound definitely matters. But the right stage presence and energy can lift any concert up to the rafters. Chvrches hit the stage on Tuesday night at The Fillmore and offered another upbeat and entertaining performance that left the whole crowd swooning. Maybe it's the indie-pop rhythms or perhaps its the sweet vocal tones of singer Lauren Mayberry. Whatever the case, Chvrches is on that list of must-see acts thanks to the quality of their sound and simplistic goodness that shouldn't be missed any time they're in town. You just want to dance, sing along and hope the show never ends. The night started with Lo Moon, who kicked off their brief set with the hit single, "This Is It."

Add Florence Welch to the short list of people who could sing an encyclopedia and still be entertaining. Performing around an elaborate wooden stage at Charlotte's Spectrum Center on Wednesday night, Welch and the rest Florence and the Machine could do no wrong in the eyes of fans packing the uptown venue. From her sing-along hits to rarer tunes, fans soaked up every note. Welch's effortless singing and barefoot dancing struck the right chords. 16-year-old Billie Eilish opened the night with an energetic set that showed she has talent beyond her years. It won't be long before Eilish is headlining arenas on her own.

Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends entertain with wit, classic arts

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2018 at 10:22 PM

Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends: New Worlds
Belk Theater
Oct. 2, 2018

I hope you didn't attend Tuesday night's performance by Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends expecting a standup routine. As Murray himself pointed out, you might be shrugging your shoulders and wondering what's going on. Murray's performance had fantastic moments of wit but it was more of a window into the world of classical arts. He was out of view during intense classical performances performed by cellist Vogler, violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez. He provided direct readings of classic literature by Ernest Hemingway, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain and James Fenimore Cooper. Sure, there were moments of laughter, but how many people in the packed Belk Theater would have come out for a night filled with literature and classical music if not for Murray's involvement? Perhaps more of us should.
