The Weekday Roundup: Bush, Charlotte Symphony, and A Soulful Noel

Bush's latest record was released in October.

MONDAY
1065 THE END'S NOT SO ACOUSTIC XMAS SHOW FEAT. BUSH
The Gavin Rossdale-led Bush brings current tunes and selections from its ’90s grunge past to the Fillmore stage. The line-up for the annual outing also includes The Airborne Toxic Event and Twin Atlantic.

TUESDAY
CHARLOTTE MUSEUM OF HISTORY
For a city that often looks forward, this museum reflects on the rich background of the region. The eight-acre property is also home to the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite, featuring the oldest house in Mecklenburg County. The combination of exhibits, re-creations, and an authentic 1774 building is unique among area museums for both its format and scope. Guided tours available.

WEDNESDAY
CHARLOTTE SYMPHONY: MESSIAH
Handel's "Messiah" is in good hands with the Oratorio Singers of Charlotte, hitting the Belk Theater stage again to offer this reflective composition from 1741. This show is offered for just one night.

BONUS ENTRY (FOR SOME NON-SEASON LAUGHS):
HEATH HYCHE
You may have seen him on TV shows like Two Guys and A Girl and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, but it’s on the road that Hyche has made his name in stand-up. The comic is sure to add some holiday-themed jokes into his act.

THURSDAY
A SOULFUL NOEL
Charlotte’s On Q Productions combines spoken word, dance, and music for A Soulful Noel. The story comes in three acts, with old-school holiday tunes distributed throughout. Read an interview with On Q’s Quentin Talley, tackling the current season, here.
