Music can soothe one’s fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today's GrouponLive deal: for $17, you get one general-admission ticket to the "Music, Monsters and Mayhem" show, featuring O.A.R., at the Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre on Saturday, October 29, at 5:30 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.
"Music, Monsters and Mayhem," one of Charlotte's biggest Halloween bashes, thrills the seekers of thrill in a night of ghoulish chicanery featuring seven hard-rocking bands, a haunted house, and access to a slew of restaurants and clubs. Headlining the delightfully spooky celebration, O.A.R., the prolific band behind hits such as “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker” and “Shattered (Turn the Car Around),” takes its jam-centric show on the road in support of its upcoming album, King. From humble beginnings to sold-out Madison Square Garden shows, the copious and acronymic crew of O.A.R. has garnered an armada of fans with its high-endurance live shows and infectious, non-sea-based shanties, sometimes stretching two-minute ditties into 20-minute opuses or releasing self-destructing concept albums. Seven more bands of alternative and metalish ilk fill the bill, including crystalline indie rockers Company of Thieves, earnest mid-tempo balladeers Simplified, and Blizzard of Ozzy, who translate the hits of Ozzy Osbourne into English.
Admission to "Music, Monsters and Mayhem" includes access to the NC Music Factory's menagerie of restaurants, clubs, and bars, available through the front entrance of the amphitheatre. Adding monsters and mayhem to the music, guests are welcome to cringe through the NC Fright Factory, a haunted house filled with heart-pounding scares, buckets of gore, and a cadre of lost roadies.
