What You'll Get
Without the eye candy of flashy stage lights at concert venues, fans would notice mistakes such as the drummer's missed fills and the singer's tendency to refer to every city as Cleveland. Remain blissfully unaware with this GrouponLive deal to see Queen City Get Your Green On Featuring Toubab Krewe, Tim Reynolds, and TR3 at The Fillmore Charlotte. For $13, you get one general-admission ticket for Saturday, April 21, at 8 p.m. (up to a $27 value, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. The Fillmore Charlotte is a standing-room-only venue.
Toubab Krewe's unique, textural sound doesn't need a voice to communicate its message, as the quintet instead relies on the strumming of guitars, the plucking of koras, and the striking of percussion to tell the story of when American rock 'n' roll crossed paths with West African music. The instrumental troupe draws musical inspiration from its journeys throughout Mali, Guinea, and the Ivory Coast, where it developed a multicultural repertoire that later regaled ears at festivals such as Bonnaroo and the Festival in the Desert in Essakane, Mali. Joining Toubab Krewe in the night of rock 'n' roll revelry, Tim Reynolds and TR3 anchors the stage with their heavy riffage and platform shoes filled with lead. Over the course of his more than 35-year career, multi-instrumentalist and frontman Tim Reynolds has perfected his own brand of music that blurs the boundaries between rock, jazz, and blues.
Modeled after the legendary San Francisco venue of the same name, The Fillmore encourages spirited sock sliding with its red-oak floors and rapid ceiling swinging with chandeliers throughout. Stadium-style tiers ensure optimal sight lines for general-admission audiences, allowing them to fully make out the interstellar nuances of every guitar solo.
