Live music in Charlotte, NC
Hey, just moved to the university area of charlotte in mid august and was wondering where some decent and preferably free live music was around town? I stumbled upon the wine vault at university place near Tyron and Harris. any others good ones people know about?

Right next door at billy's boardwalk. Also head down Tryon towards the track and turn left at the 2nd light I believe. Check out Stool Pigeons and the flying saucer.

I think amos's on the south end has some decent bands play every once in a while...but not sure if they're free.

I was up at the Galway Hooker Irish pub in Cornelius a few weeks ago and they had some really good free music. I guess they get quite a few good musicians in there.

Someone said the Flying Saucer has live music. They have not had bands in for the last 12 months.

Nobody mentioned Tremont Music Hall... haven't been there in years, but that was always a popular venue when I lived around CLT (not free though). Its still around right?

The Visulite and The Neighborhood Theatre are my favorites.

Same here. I will be at the visualite tomorrow night. One of my best friends is playing up there.

+1 for The Visulite and The Neighborhood Theatre are my favorites. best venues, usually the best bands. having said that, i still haven't been to the new music factory (partially cause kiddos and partially cause it appears to be rather pricey for tickets and beers).

There were a lot of free outdoor concerts this summer around town but they all pretty much ended at the beginning of this month. Still, you can occasionally find some free concerts at some of the places listed above. Some other good places check out are: Double Door Inn, Evening Muse and Fillmore.

The site below is pretty good about having these and most of the other places listed above posted for the coming weekend by Wed of each week (they also include the price for each concert so you can see right away if it's free or inexpensive):

Charlotte NC events - concerts, theater, festivals, kids events & sporting events

They also have a free events section which often includes free festivals that have live music.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 09:38 PM.
