I've said it plenty of times in the past, and I'll continue to say it for a long time to come: Get out and support local, original, live music!
Big things are happening around Charlotte and if you don't stop to check it out, you may miss out on another case of "I knew them when ..."
The Avett Brothers have signed with American Records, Benji Hughes is reviewed in Spin and plenty of other acts are well on their way to follow in those footsteps.
Plenty of local bands are dropping sweat on floors across the Q.C. and only hope you'll give them a chance -- and it only costs a few bucks. Plenty of shows with multiple bands happen every week, and CDs are released on a regular basis.
We're releasing the next Creative Loafing Presents Jeff Hahne's Homebrew CD in the coming weeks to give you a great sample of some of the music, but the best way to see it is always live. So, get off your couch and show some love!
