Opening Reception for If We Get A House at SHAG

Stone House Art Gallery NC
$10
Stone House Art Gallery is pleased to present If We Get A House, a collaborative exhibition featuring new works by Gabriella Carboni and Lauren Anaïs Hussey. Inspired by the curiosity into how one chooses to inhabit domestic spaces, the artists have created an investigative group of works combining elements of drawing, painting, and sculpture. Beverages are kindly provided by Burial Brewing Co., and parking is available across the street at Oak Grove Baptist Church.

Comedy Bang! Bang!

Knight Theater 430 S Tryon St., Charlotte, NC
$39.75
Host Scott Aukerman (‘Mr. Show with Bob and David’ and ‘Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis’) brings your favorite satirical improv comedy podcast ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!’ live to the the stage. The long-running podcast features celebrity guests and eccentric oddballs who pop by to chat and compete in games. The live show will feature secret guests, but there are no props or sets. The focus is on improv, which means anything can happen.

Crossroads Cinema: ‘Do The Right Thing’

Camp North End 300 Camp Road, Charlotte, NC
Free
It’s a blistering day in the Bedford-Stuyevesant neighborhood of Brooklyn and things are poised to heat up even more due to pent-up racial tension. Producer/writer/director Spike Lee’s 1989 masterpiece does the impossible: It makes us empathize with almost every character onscreen. 'Do The Right Thing' ends with two quotes, one decries violence; the other casts it as self-defense. Both are proven right in a film that is eerily prescient and absolutely relevant right now.

The Second City Out of the House Party

Booth Playhouse 130 N. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC
$34.50
The Second City troupe launched long before the brilliant sketch comedy show 'SCTV,' featuring SC members like Martin Short and John Candy. It even predates the dawn of 'Saturday Night Live' that employed even more SC alumni like Gilda Radner and John Belushi. In fact, SC was launched as a tiny cabaret theater in 1959. That legacy of comedy means this sketch show featuring a new wave of SC performers will be damn funny.

Sleigh Bells

The Underground 820 Hamilton Street, Charlotte, NC
$22.50
Since their 2010 debut 'Treats,' Sleigh Bells have managed to be both critical darlings and downright popular. On catchy genre-jumping gems like “Comeback Kid,” Alexis Krauss’ girlish yet confident vocals float above Derek Miller’s cacophony of crunchy beats and grinding guitars. After splicing and recombining bite-sized chunks of genres ranging from punk to hip-hop over three successive albums, Sleigh Bells returned to their post-modernist cut-up pop roots with 'Texis' in 2021.

Second City for Anxiety Workshop

Discovery Place Science 301 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC
$15
Part of the Queen City Comedy Experience, this workshop is designed to teach people with social anxiety and/or fear of public speaking how to use improvisational skills to manage their symptoms, thereby reducing avoidance behaviors in social and family settings. Participants will learn and explore these things in a safe and supportive environment with the help of a Second City instructor and licensed clinician.

‘Toni Stone’

The Arts Factory at West End Studios 1545 W Trade Street, Charlotte
$25
Three Bone Theatre’s latest production is based on Martha Ackmann’s book 'Curveball: The Remarkable Story of Toni Stone.' The drama tells the story of the first woman to play baseball in the Negro Leagues, also making her the first woman to play professionally in a men’s league in the 1950s. Stone’s stint with the Indianapolis Clowns gets a clear-eyed depiction in the play, complete with grueling conditions and looming racism.

Living Dead Girl, Hellfire 76, Flame Tides

The Milestone 3400 Tuckaseegee Rd, Charlotte, NC
$10
We’ve already noted Flame Tides heavy-as-plutonium grooves enfolding mystic and hopeful lyrics. Here the Charlotte duo supports Hellfire 76, a duo devoted to rampaging stoner/doom/psych-metal which swings to dense blues licks that suggest a triceratops mating with a Sherman tank. Female-fronted Canadian goth-metal band Living Dead Girl embrace a dark, humorously self-aware sexuality. The dead may be horny, but they do it with melody and style.

“Lost in Space” is a Sci-Fi Bio-Mystery from the Space Race (1963). Tethered by the symphonics of a chamber orchestra and spoken word artistry (Bluz), interlaced with crafted hip hop, we gather around to take a journey with Ludmila (a Lost Cosmonaut), beyond the reach of Earth into outer space. Isolated. Weightless. A celestial starscape expanding while the Earthship dwindles below, ascend beyond the struggles of humanity. Our existence depends on our ability to transcend.
