If Lil Wayne's visit to Charlotte, along with T-Pain, Keyshia Cole, Gym Class Heroes and Keri Hilson, just wasn't enough rap to start the new year, never fear. After all, today the New York-based group of hardcore rappers known as Wu-Tang Clan invades Charlotte for what will be a highly energized performance at Amos' Southend. Expect to hear power-pumping tunes from the group's latest album (released in 2007) 8 Diagrams. 18 and up. $40-$45. 8 p.m. Amos' Southend, 1423 S. Tryon St. 704-377-6874. www.amossouthend.com.
