Looking for live music in Charlotte and surrounding areas? Check out this list of what’s on the calendar on Charlotte on the Cheap.
Here we focus on free and very inexpensive events. Mostly free.
So you’ll see plenty of shows at breweries, coffee houses and bars, but also at museums, universities, and out in the community. In the warmer months there will be a lot of free outdoor concerts and festivals.
Please make sure to tip the band, buy a CD if you like the music and tip the bartender.
Some events on the list aren’t primarily music events but do include live music, and some are more participatory, like music workshops. And there will occasionally be an event that has music, but not live music, when it seems really interesting and fun.
Also, make sure to check out Connect with Culture Day on Friday, January 26th, and Saturday, January 27th. There are many more live music performances and music workshops than we could get into this list.
Besides the shows on this list, there are several venues that routinely have great music, for very low prices. A couple great venues are The Evening Muse and Petra’s Bar, so check out their schedules too.
Do you know of shows that should be on this list? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org Please make sure to include complete information, including the cost, if any, a picture if available, and, especially, a link to the event. A Facebook event is fine. Events will be added to this list as time permits.
See a mistake? Please email me and let me know. Sometimes there are recurring events on the calendar that have changed.
