It's hard to believe that the Wu-Tang Clan -- one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time -- is actually playing the city of Charlotte; the Q.C.'s not exactly known as a hip-hop town after all. But, hey, let's not look a gift horse in the mouth. Just buy a ticket, go to the damn show and witness the power of the 36 Chambers. 8 p.m. $35 ADV. Amos' Southend, 1423 S. Tryon St. 704-377-6874. www.amossouthend.com.
