The Weekday Roundup (Oct. 21-24)
For those days between weekends
Charlotte shows no plans of slowing down after a busy weekend of festivals, operas, and concerts from touring acts. This week, things stay diverse with a reality show star, an art discussion, and a different method of traveling to dinner.
Amber Carrington, burgeoning country artist and semi-finalist on the fourth season of The Voice, comes to the Visulite Theatre. She’s joined by singer-songwriter Jillette Johnson, hailing from New York. $10-$12, 8 p.m.
Foundation for the Carolinas will host a lecture and discussion titled “Hierarchy in Art and in Life: The Conceptual Basis of Contemporary Art,” which will focus on the history of contemporary art. The event will take place at the foundation’s Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy. Free, 7:30 p.m.
Among regular events that may be overlooked is the U.S. National Whitewater Center’s Zipline and Dine. On Wednesdays, you can travel through the center’s courses, including ziplines and rope bridges, before returning to a fire pit with craft beer, wine, and dinner from the facility’s chef. Admission is $75, and you can check their calendar for additional dates.
Singer-songwriter Sarah Blacker comes to the Evening Muse Thursday, bringing her celebrated brand of indie pop. Her newest record, Pretty Little Things, was released this year. $8-$10, 8 p.m.
