Hey, pothead! Want two tickets to see Crobot?

Posted By on Wed, Apr 1, 2015 at 1:54 PM

We have two tickets for the Crobot concert taking place at Tremont Music Hall on Tuesday, April 7. With 4/20 around the corner, and Crobot professing their love of weed in our feature story this week, we thought we'd tie this all in to our call for High-deas.

Simply go online to our survey and share the best idea you've come up with while high. Maybe it was a cheesy poofs delivery service; maybe it was the perfect sandwich; maybe it was a way to end world hunger.

We'll pick one of the submissions as the winner on Monday morning.

30 Free Downloads from Lollapalooza Artists

Posted By on Thu, Jul 7, 2011 at 4:02 PM

Freebies abound in this recent update from the upcoming Lollapalooza festival. For those of you who can't make it to the August festival in Chicago (I am a sad, sad member of that club), some of the featuring artists have songs available through Spinner. The big hitters (My Morning Jacket, Bright Eyes) are here, but there are plenty of lesser known groups (Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and Mountain Goats) in this sampler to keep an eye on.

Nikki Sixx A.M. giveaway

Posted By on Tue, May 10, 2011 at 8:16 AM


Nikki Sixx’s solo project, Sixx A.M. has released a new CD entitled, This is Gonna Hurt. It’s the musical companion to Sixx’s newest book by the same title, one he wrote without a ghostwriter to document the three years following his book, The Heroin Diaries. It’s a collection that is part journal, part photos, part memoir and part social commentary.

You can win a copy of the CD AND book simply by entering a comment below via a valid e-mail address. Let us know if you liked the first book, if you're going to see the Crue this summer at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre or why you'd like to hear the new CD or read the book.

We'll pick FIVE winners on May 17.

NOTE: In order to win, you must be able to pick up your prize (or send a friend/family member) from the Charlotte Creative Loafing office. These books are heavy, so we can't afford to mail them out... Sorry! It's also a way to give a little love back to our local readers.

Record Store Day at Lunchbox Records

Posted By on Wed, Apr 13, 2011 at 2:10 PM

Lunchbox Records has announced the details of its Record Store Day plans. Taking place on April 16, 2011 — that's this Saturday — the store plans to open at 10 a.m.

According to their site, they're the only shop in Charlotte taking part, so it's gonna be a lot of items that are first-come, first-serve obviously.

They'll have a bag of goodies to hand out until they run out — free 7" albums, CDs, stickers, shirts, etc. They'll be limiting the number of people that can cram into the store at once, so please be patient if there's a line. It'll be worth the wait — they're having a drawing for a $50 gift certificate.

They're also going to have performances by Sled at 6:30 p.m. and Secret Hospital at 7:30 p.m.

Then there will be plenty of albums that are on sale — especially since the store is selling everything for 15% off and all used items are buy two, get one free.

Record Store Day items are one per customer... Among those are releases by Bad Brains, Circa Survive, The Decemberists, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Phish, Pink Floyd, Vivian Girls and more. You can find the entire list here.

You can find out all the details here.

Get out this weekend and support your local independent record store. Find out why Lunchbox Records has won the "Best Place to Buy CDs" title in our Best of Charlotte edition so many times.
