The Weekday Roundup: Levine Museum, Caroline Rhea, Cage, and Yonder Mountain String Band
LGBTQ: PERSPECTIVES ON EQUALITY
A group of exhibits explores local and national perspectives, using tools that range from a detailed timeline to expression from local artists. In the September issue of the magazine, we profiled the exhibit Pauli Murray: Imp, Crusader, Priest, Dude, which details the life of the vital Civil Rights figures.
This Caroline Rhea show is titled the "Hoot & Howl" fundraiser, raising funds for a charity created by NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr. The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation targets children suffering from abuse and poverty. Rhea can be seen in several films and television shows, but her first career was stand-up comedy, touring throughout the U.S. for decades.
This hip-hop artist has been making waves since forming the underground act The Weathermen. He first broke out solo with 2002’s Movies for the Blind. The performer is joined by Maulskull and Sadistik, both respected acts in the alt-hip-hop genre.
YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND
The Colorado bluegrassers return to Charlotte with a new line-up as mandolinist/vocalist Jeff Austin left the band in April. The band retains the rest of the original members for this tour. Bluegrass up-and-comers Henhouse Prowlers, hailing from Chicago, is also on the bail.
