Last night was the kickoff of For Locals Only: Weekly Kickback Event here in Charlotte. This event will be exactly what it says, weekly, continuing on to next Wednesday. Brought to you by Black Diamond Society and Blvck Universe, the event was held at The Underground located in NoDa. Let me start off by saying the venue does not look promising from the outside, it is very sketch to say the least, but once you walk in you really get great vibes. There is a bar that sells chicken wings and fries, small VIP room, and the open area is big with couches, a huge mirror, and has wood flooring as the performance area. There is plenty of space outside to mingle for when you get too hot in the building with ample free parking. This place really is like no other in the city. The Wave, the featured artists of the night, consist of Charlotte artists: Mic Iver, SideNote, King Callis, and Denim Leekz. They did not perform as a group but instead each performed songs they have separately and came together on each other’s sets if they were featured on a song. Simon SMTHNG graced us by DJing and he had everyone dancing the whole night and having a great time. Footage will be coming soon so of course stay tuned! You can peep my ensemble for the night and check next week’s lineup (hosted by yours truly).
