Things To Do In Charlotte NC : Charlotte Art Weekly #23

The Charlotte Art Weekly’s 23rd Edition is here With Chuck Brown and Some Startingly Enriching Events


Hardly a week left for Thanksgiving and here we are already thanking you for showing enormous love towards your city. Our increasing number of subscribers who receive the Charlotte Art Weekly is evidently showcasing people’s love for each other and the city, and its creations. With the CAW 23 we bring you some never before visual art displays, open mic gatherings, photography presentations, theatricals, movie screenings, music concerts, literature events, stand up comedy shows and of course lots of love. So go ahead attend these events and make sure to appreciate the local talent and artist, because someone is making a living out of it.

The CAW 23 is featuring American guitarist Chuck Brown as its core inspiration for the week. Fondly called the The Godfather of Go-Go Brown was someone who played in the funk music genre and also invented the go-go music genre. Born in Gaston, NC, Brown has a traumatic childhood as he lived on the streets, did not graduate the high school and even cleaned shoes for a living. After completing his jail sentence in a murder case, Brown moved back to Washington DC and started to perform at parties. Soon he became a mainstream musician and created studio albums like We The People, and Funk Express, Live Albums like Go-Go Swing Live and This IS A Journey Into Time, and Compilation Albums Like Lets Go Go Christmas and Best of Chuck Brown. He was awarded National Heritage Fellowship in 2005, and his discography is still celebrated across America.
