  1. When is Acid Mothers Temple coming to Charlotte, ohh thats right they are playing Chapel Hill and Columbia. They played Asheville last year too. Since they are Japanese you would think they would play a GOD DAMN world class city. HICK TOWN.

  2. Ozric Tentacles from London are playing Roanoke next week. They have played Charlotte before. Aren't we WORLD CLASS? No we aren't.

  3. Ichicuts - Have a look and a listen, please.

    Well seasoned, highly original, rockin' electro/soul/pop/dance/multi-instrumentalist Brooklyn band with some deep Charlotte roots.

    Actively writing/recording and playing Northeast circuit: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Philly, Baltimore, Boston, etc.

    Highly original shows. Gordon and Erik are experienced pros with a sense of humor and fingers on the pulse of the music and the people.
