Hey jazz fans, the Jazz Diva just announced an uptown summer jazz festival. Details are a little vague, but the QC Summerfest lineup includes Najee and Keiko Matsui. Stay tuned for more details next month. 

If you’re looking for a non-traditional game-watch party this weekend, there are quite a few happening. Take a look

Now, let’s get this party started. See you in the streets…

Theater In Southend – An ASC grant, and a collaboration by Donna Scott Productions and Historic South End are bringing the staged reading of “Carrie Ann’s Kiss” to the Charlotte Trolley Museum.
