Hayley Kiyoko brings a party to The Underground

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.

Bishop Briggs stuns sold-out Underground

Posted By on Mon, May 28, 2018 at 10:15 PM

Bishop Briggs w/ Foreign Air
May 25, 2018
The Underground

The first time Bishop Briggs played in Charlotte, she was warming up for Kaleo at The Underground. "This show is so much better than the last time," Briggs joked with the sold-out crowd.

Aside from being the headliner this time around, Briggs also had a studio album under her belt. The effortless power of her vocals and unending energy on stage had the crowd singing along for the duration of her 70-minute set.

Sandwiched between hit singles, "White Flag" and "River" were an array of songs to showcase her style and vocals. She won't be playing venues of this size for long.

Charlotte's own Foreign Air, featuring Jesse Clasen (HRVRD, The Bear Romantic), opened the night and got the entire crowd moving with their indie brand of electro rock.

The band is often on tour, but I can't imagine them holding opening slots much longer. Don't miss either act the next time they're in town.

Fans leave Outlaw Music Festival disappointed

Posted By on Mon, May 28, 2018 at 10:02 PM

2018 Outlaw Music Festival
May 26, 2018
PNC Music Pavilion

Brandi Carlile dropped off the lineup. Then Elvis Costello dropped off. The Outlaw Music Festival at PNC Music Pavilion was holding on by the strength of its headliners — Sturgill Simpson and Willie Nelson.

So, when the set times were announced, it's no surprise the crowd was sparse for the day's opening acts, including Lee Mitchell, Horse Feathers and Old Crow Medicine Show.

As the night went on, the crowd got bigger as anticipation grew. Sturgill Simpson rocked through his set, winning over countless fans. More jam than country, his quartet pushed the boundaries of every song.

Kate Nash's energetic pop lights up The Underground

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2018 at 9:29 PM

Kate Nash w/ Miya Folick
The Underground
April 29, 2018

Indie-pop singer Kate Nash teased the audience on Sunday night with a quick glimpse of her hit single, "Foundations." It quickly energized the crowd before she cut song short and cruised into the rest of her set. If you only wanted to hear the hit single, you'd have to wait until the end of the night to hear the rest. In the meantime, you were given a dose of her songs, old and new, while Nash danced around the stage and kept the small crowd entertained. Sure, Beck was playing out back at the Amphitheatre, but Nash captivated her own audience just the same. Opener Miya Folick belted out her own set of tunes and impressed with her vocal range. Don't miss this dynamic duo's next tour stop.

Wolf Alice delights, energizes Charlotte crowd

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2018 at 10:23 PM

Wolf Alice, The Big Pink
Visulite Theatre
April 17, 2018

British rock quartet Wolf Alice rolled into Charlotte with little fanfare but a whole lot of heart. It took a few songs to get warmed up, but once they did, singer/guitarist Ellie Rowsell and company thrilled the packed Elizabeth venue. Not much for banter, the band let their songs do all the talking, conjuring up elements of '90s alt-rock while driving emotions with vocals. It didn't matter if you heard the songs before or not, Wolf Alice's music commands attention and conjures up feelings without the emo umbrella. I'm not sure if the band's played Charlotte before, but it's a band you don't want to miss the next time you get a chance.

Missio rocks The Underground

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2018 at 10:47 PM

Missio, Welshly Arms
The Underground
March 6, 2018

"That's why they call me temple priest, motherfucker!" Missio hit the stage with the chorus of the song "Temple Priest" as singer Matthew Brue, clad in a white robe, danced around the stage. From there, the band's set was one relentless ball of energy. Missio has plenty of depth with only a drummer and keyboardist, letting Brue command all the attention with the sonic boom going on behind him. I wouldn't expect Missio to play venues this small for much longer. The night got started with the raw rock 'n' soul of Cleveland's Welshly Arms - keep your ears out for more from them in the future, too.

Bleachers rocks The Fillmore for a good cause

Posted By on Wed, Nov 29, 2017 at 10:18 PM

1065 The End Not So Acoustic Christmas f. Bleachers, J. Roddy Walston & The Business
The Fillmore
Nov. 28, 2017

Fresh off of multiple Grammy nominations for his work as a producer and singer, three-time winner Jack Antonoff's group Bleachers hit the Fillmore as part of 1065 The End's two-night Not So Acoustic Christmas series. While the band rocked a sold-out performance at The Underground back in June, the crowd seemed a bit less enthusiastic this time around. Perhaps we can blame it on a Tuesday night? While the half-packed Fillmore found moments of energetic sing-alongs for Bleachers, they were far less excited about J. Roddy Walston and the Business. The band played a fantastic one-hour opening set, but many in the crowd weren't familiar with their rock songs. Night two of NSAX featured X Ambassadors and The Aces. 1065 The End's Not So Acoustic Christmas continues to collect unwrapped gifts for Kids First of the Carolinas.

Imagine Dragons remind fans of the power of music

Posted By on Thu, Nov 9, 2017 at 10:12 PM

Imagine Dragons, Grouplove, K. Flay
Nov. 8, 2017
Spectrum Center

Pop-rock outfit Imagine Dragons had only performed one song, "I Don't Know Why," before singer Dan Reynolds addressed the crowd. "There are people in this world who don't want us to be here right now," he said. "I'm not going to live my life in fear. And everyone here has chosen to enjoy music instead of living in fear." He thumped his chest as the crowd roared. As he held up a peace sign with two fingers, everyone in attendance was instantly reminded of recent tragedies at music events and the power we have as humans and music fans to create positive energy. From that point on, it was a night of sing-alongs and radio-friendly rock. The band even found a moment to pay tribute to Tom Petty with a cover of "I Won't Back Down." The night started with a short set by K. Flay and a thunderous performance from Grouplove, who included covers of Beastie Boys and David Bowie.

HIM thrills Charlotte on farewell tour

Posted By on Wed, Nov 8, 2017 at 12:20 AM

HIM, CKY, 3Teeth
The Fillmore
Nov. 7, 2017

It's the moment fans have been waiting for and dreading. Finnish goth-rock band HIM returned to Charlotte for the first time in 10 years on Tuesday night. The problem? It's a stop on the band's farewell tour. The crowd soaked up every note and sang along to every lyric throughout the night. Even though te band cruised through a packed setlist for two hours, it wasn't enough for the diehards. Maybe opening act 3Teeth will be right and the band will return for an anniversary tour down the road... even singer Ville Valo hasn't ruled it out. The night opened with industrial rockers 3Teeth before skate-rockers CKY finally made their Charlotte debut.
