Family First: Minnie Evans Inspired Doodling

Harvey B. Gantt Center 551 S Tryon S, Charlotte, NC
$10
An African American artist who was active from the 1940s to the 1980s, Minnie Evans created colorful drawings and paintings depicting a riot of shapes, hues and hidden faces. Evans’ pieces are surrealistic without intellectualism or self-consciousness. The workshop, a mix of Evans’ style and Zen doodling, encourages participants to learn the art of doodling using bright colors and rhythmic patterns to create a mixed-media mirrored pieces inspired by the Carolina artist.

Donnie Doolittle, Junior Astronomers, ACNE

Neighborhood Theatre 511 E 36th St, Charlotte, NC
$15
Donnie Doolittle’s moody pop rides a retro Southern Goth vibe pitched midway between the trippy 1960s orchestral folk of Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra and Nick Cave going through his 1990s werewolf Elvis phase. On his smash single “When a Woman,” Doolittle gets bonus points for torpedoing the rancid Madonna/whore complex that fucks up so many cis het men. He’s backed by ace Queen City acts Junior Astronomers and ACNE.

Wednesday Night Live: Claudio Ortiz

Mint Museum Uptown 500 S Tryon St, Charlotte, NC
Free
Charlotte music fans have followed Claudio Ortiz since 2015, when he provided the rhythmic spine of rock en Espanol band Patabamba, followed by stints with Chócala, Moa and more. Ortiz goes beyond those accomplishments with Areítos, building on Afro-Caribbean rhythms, particularly those from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and looping in real-time electronic samples. Ortiz also dives into the history of the music, pairing the performance with a mini-lecture on the traditions of Afro-Caribbean rhythms.

The Wrecks, Girlhouse, Mothe

The Underground 820 Hamilton Street, Charlotte, NC
$20
Los Angeles combo The Wrecks made a splash after they snuck into a studio to record their debut EP We Are The Wrecks in 2016. Spearheaded by the sly single “Favorite Liar,” The Wrecks started crafting a string of exuberant, emo-influenced songs in the vein of Simple Plan — except The Wrecks are better, pushing the envelope each time they release new music. That trajectory culminates in their second album Sonder, released in June.  

Alfred Sergel IVtet Presents: The Music of Paul Motian

Petra's 1919 Commonwealth Ave., Charlotte
$7
Drummer/composer Alfred Sergel IV builds on beguiling primal song forms that seem to precede jazz. While his jazz IVtet can certainly tackle the standards, their tunes often tangle the DNA of pop, rock and jazz in startling ways. Here the band pays tribute to drummer Motian, who played with Thelonious Monk, Coleman Hawkins and pianist Bill Evans’ famous early-’60s trio before leaving to play with Carla Bley.
