David Childers, Brut Beat

When: Fri., June 15, 8 p.m. 2018

David Childers is a longtime advocate for the poor who's used his Mount Holly law practice to help people navigate the complicated social security, disability and SSI systems. In his off time, he's written poetry, painted and recorded 15 albums of country, folk and rock, sometimes in the experimental vein of late-period Tom Waits records. Childers' songs revolve around the characters he's encountered growing up on the rural margins of Charlotte, and the religious zeal that defines those characters' lives.
