Recent club concert announcements

Madonna isn't the only artist to announce a Charlotte date this week. Clubs are filling up their Spring concert calendars. Among the recent announcements is rapper/actor Common performing at Lux (200 E. Bland St.) March 2 during the busy CIAA entertainment schedule. Rick Ross, who is headlining Bojangles' Coliseum March 2, will host the Maybach Music Takeover CI Grand Finale at Lux on March 3.

Amos' Southend celebrates its 21st anniversary with Cage the Elephant April 13. The Southend venue also recently announced Nantucket on March 24, Yelawolf April 19, and the Melvins and Unsane April 26.

The North Mississippi Allstars headline Neighborhood Theatre March 1. Buckethead and That 1 Guy return to the NoDa venue as the Frankenstein Brothers March 23. The English Beat is back there as well on March 24. Up and comers We Were Promised Jetpacks and Trampled By Turtles are there April 6 and 25, respectively. The Neighborhood continues its foray into booking interesting hip electronic dance acts with Beats Antique May 5.

In addition to Tremont's exciting upcoming Minus the Bear, Lights, and David Choi shows, rapper Tech N9ne returns to the venue June 21.

  1. Thanks for the coverage of Fishbones Everyday Sunshine documentary. I watched it the other night and really liked it

  2. Excited to see We Were Promised Jetpacks coming back to Charlotte. Why has Snug Harbor stopped booking the national bands they had been over the past couple years? Just a dry spell? Japandroids there in March of 2009 is the best show I've ever seen in Charlotte.
