The CLTure Music and Fashion Bazaar focuses on showcasing some of Charlotte’s up-and-coming musical artists and local businesses. The event will host a mini-market, fashion vendors, local food purveyors, and a concert on Saturday, December 10 from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Snug Harbor in the heart of Plaza Midwood.
The music lineup features Charlotte-based rap artist, Well$, who has recently collaborated with Durham's Sylvan Esso and released a new full-length album, The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous and has been featured in Billboard, Pitchfork, XXL, and Vibe.
Born in the U.S to Congolese immigrants, Well$ grew up in Charlotte raised by a grandmother who speaks no English, and listened to as much French rap as he did American. “I was speaking from the perspective of an African kid living as an American. Now, with The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous, I’m speaking about how my American upbringing clashes with my African values,” he said in his XXL interview.
In addition, the lineup will also feature North Carolina artists Erick Lottary, Dorren Pierre, Jezu$, Shome, and fat geoff.
