CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Local independent music venues like Neighborhood Theatre, Visulite Theatre and Evening Muse have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic in mid-March. No shows mean no revenue for these businesses.

In an effort to raise money for the venue and the artists who play there, Neighborhood Theatre is hosting a concert series online.
