When: Sat., March 11, 8 p.m. 2017
An Urban Ministry Center-sponsored concert devoted to ending homelessness in Charlotte, Housingfest returns for its third year – and its second at the Fillmore. In contrast to last year’s all day, multi-act affair, Housingfest 2017 focuses on a more compact bill. Headliners St. Paul and the Broken Bones can be counted on to tear up the joint with their gospel-tinged, garage-soul. Opener Aaron Lee Tasjan’s bluesy country rock has drawn favorable comparisons to Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman.
