If you enjoy live music, you will LOVE the next few days in University City.
We just learned that Thursday’s rain-postponed free performance of The Voltage Brothers at The Shoppes at University Place has been shifted to May 3.
Meanwhile, UNC Charlotte’s musicians and singers will perform four concerts in six nights, starting tonight, April 27.
