Chvrches ups the energy

Posted By on Wed, Oct 17, 2018 at 10:38 PM

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."

Florence & The Machine offer a vocal showcase in Charlotte area

Florence & The Machine, Billie Eilish
Oct. 3, 2018
Spectrum Center

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.

Judas Priest, Deep Purple rock the Queen City

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2018 at 9:42 PM

Deep Purple, Judas Priest, The Temperance Movement
PNC Music Pavilion
Sept. 11, 2018

Less than a month ago, a trio of rock legends hit PNC Music Pavilion to prove they're not too old to rock. On Tuesday night, a duo proved the same thing. Deep Purple and Judas Priest may have had a smaller crowd than that concert with Paul Rodgers, Beck and Ann Wilson, but they did their best to tear the roof off the Charlotte amphitheatre. Don't ever second guess that Priest's Rob Halford can't hit all the high notes. While it took Deep Purple's Ian Gillian a few songs to warm up, he held his own through all the hits, as well. Both singers are mixed by a group of long-time players and hired guns that fill the shoes well during hour-plus sets. While The Temperance Movement may have been the younger band on the bill, they held their own and warmed up the crowd nicely.

Rodgers, Beck and Wilson prove they aren't too old to rock

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 10:16 PM

Stars Align Tour f. Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck, Ann Wilson, Deborah Bonham
PNC Music Pavilion
Aug. 19, 2018

Paul Rodgers is 68 years old. Jeff Beck is 74. Ann Wilson is 68. Who says you can't get better with age? The trio of rock icons hit Charlotte's PNC Music Pavilion on Sunday night and proved they've still got what it takes to hit all the right notes. While Rodgers filled his performance with songs from Bad Company and Free, Ann Wilson of Heart focused more on covers of music that influenced her and meant something to her. Meanwhile, it was Beck who lit up the night from start to finish. The legendary guitarist simply shredded every note and showed why he's at or near the top of so many best guitarist lists. (Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring even made the drive up from Atlanta just to see him.) The night was opened by John Bonham's sister, Deborah. There might not have been many people in attendance but those who were soaked in every minute of classic rock. As Ann Wilson said, "It's a night full of music performed by people with real voices and instruments." Plenty of modern musicians should take notes.

Rain doesn't dampen the party with Kesha and Macklemore

Posted By on Thu, Aug 2, 2018 at 9:51 PM

Kesha, Macklemore
PNC Music Pavilion
Aug. 1, 2018

Someone said there were massive downpours at PNC Music Pavilion last night. I also heard that the sets by Kesha and Macklemore were cut short by two songs each. Those in attendance didn't care because they were too busy having a great time. The pop stars brought a party to Charlotte last night and rain didn't hold anyone back. Usually when it rains, concert-goers run for cover. In Charlotte, they acted like it was an extension of Macklemore spraying water on the crowd or Kesha's confetti bombs.

Macklemore opened up the night with an eight-song run through his biggest hits. He brought crowd members on stage, threw things into the crowd and never stopped dancing from one side of the stage to the other. Kesha's anthem "Praying" brought many to tears, but her entire set showed she's a pop start without the "diva" label. Her set started off with plenty of f-bombs and middle fingers in the air, but she clearly had a blast from the first notes of "Woman." She even joked that her ass wasn't hanging out of her leotard enough. Sure, those in attendance would have preferred less rain and more music, but they loved every minute of the party that rolled through town.

Weezer and Pixies thrill amphitheatre crowd

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2018 at 10:46 PM

Weezer, Pixies, Sleigh Bells
July 25, 2018
PNC Music Pavilion

If Weezer represented upbeat pop-rock and Sleigh Bells provided the punch of heavy, modern rock, the Pixies were the glue holding it all together on a night that featured all three bands. Wednesday night's co-headliner event showcased the high energy of Sleigh Bells kicking things off. Pixies spent more than an hour proving why they've had staying power - except for a decade-long hiatus in the mid-90s to mid-00s. Frontman Black Francis sounded better than ever, merging spoken word with on-point screams and everything between. Weezer hit the stage with "Buddy Holly" and never let up with hit after hit to keep the entire crowd singing along. Both headliners played setlists of more than 20 songs each. Overall, it's one of the best rock shows Charlotte's seen this summer.

Evanescence, Lindsey Stirling bring new energy to PNC Music Pavilion

Posted By on Sun, Jul 22, 2018 at 10:49 PM

Lindsey Stirling, Evanescence, Cellogram
July 20, 2018
PNC Music Pavilion

If you went to PNC Music Pavilion on Friday night expecting to see a blistering rock show, you left either completely disappointed or pleasantly surprised. While Evanescence was on the bill with co-headliner Lindsey Stirling, the band left the heavy rock behind. Singer Amy Lee took center stage to showcase her vocals through rearranged, more mellow versions of the band's songs accompanied by more than two dozen orchestra members. She showed depth and range for more than an hour and brought numerous fans to tears with the emotion and power in her vocals. Stirling capped off the night with an energetic performance filled with non-stop dancing. It wasn't the typical show for PNC Music Pavilion as both artists performed their music with renewed style and grace. If only more artists brought something completely new to the table on their own tours.

Willie Nelson's return is worth the wait

Posted By on Thu, Jun 21, 2018 at 10:53 PM

Outlaw Music Festival f. Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers, Jamey Johnson and Sarah Shook and the Disarmers
PNC Music Pavilion
June 20, 2018

When Willie Nelson abruptly canceled his performance nearly a month ago, fans left Charlotte's PNC Music Pavilion filled with disappointment. Sure, they said they'd make up the show, but would it really happen? When a June 20 makeup date was announced, fans remained optimistic. On Wednesday night, Nelson held up his end of the bargain in fine fashion. Though the night started a bit slow for the 85-year-old legendary singer/guitarist, he quickly warmed up his vocals and fretwork. He rolled through hit after hit and cover after cover. At this point, Nelson doesn't owe anyone an explanation or a makeup date, but he showed his love of performing for more than an hour. His only acknowledgement of last month's debacle was a simple, "I feel like I've been here before."

Before Nelson, Concord's own Avett Brothers performed a stripped-down set a la 2008. With only Seth and Scott Avett flanked by bassist Bob Crawford and cellist Joe Kwon, the quartet rifled through songs like they used to when they were performing in Charlotte on a regular basis. Family harmonies, energetic foot stomping and spot-on instrumentation highlighted the set. It might have stole the show if they were opening for anyone other than Willie Nelson.

Hayley Kiyoko brings a party to The Underground

Posted By on Tue, Jun 12, 2018 at 11:05 PM

Hayley Kiyoko, Gavin Turek
The Underground
June 11, 2018

From the moment she walked out on stage until the final notes ringing out, Hayley Kiyoko brought a party to The Underground on Monday night. Recent hit "Girls Like Girls" played like an anthem in the early part of the set before Kiyoko recognized that it's Pride Month and time to celebrate. The sold-out Avidxchange Music Factory venue danced and sang the night away while the rain fell outside. Dancing whirlwind and pop-diva-in-training Gavin Turek got the party started with a 40-minute set full of pop music and dance grooves. You never would have guessed it was a Monday night.

Japanese Breakfast thrills sold-out Neighborhood Theatre

Japanese Breakfast w/ Dollhands, Faye
Neighborhood Theatre
June 9, 2018

With light-up shoes and non-stop energy, Japanese Breakfast's Michelle Zauner hit the stage on Saturday night and rarely stopped moving. Performing in front of a sold-out crowd on the Neighborhood Theatre's bar side stage, the quartet quickly got the crowd moving and didn't hold anything back. Zauner was all smiles for the duration of the set which drew from the group's two albums, 2016's Psychopomp and 2017's Soft Sounds from Another Planet, as well as a closing cover of The Cranberries' "Dreams." The night got started with short sets from two Charlotte indie rock outfits, Faye and Dollhands. Each quickly won over the crowd and set an upbeat tone for the night.
