The musical moments that emerged from the end of the decade were all about bold new voices breaking out of the margins and being heard. Rolling Stone editors and critics discuss the emergence of a bold new kind of pop, the new school of hip-hop revolutionaries, and the innovative new artists whose homage to the greats before them only helped in expanding and defining the music lexicon for the next generation.
Rolling Stone Reports: The Year in Music features Brittany Spanos, a staff writer at Rolling Stone covering music, fandom and pop culture. Her most recent cover stories featured Janelle Monae and Cardi B. The evening also features Brendan Klinkenberg, Rolling Stone's music editor focused on rap trends and hip-hop everything. He worked extensively on coverage of the death of Mac Miller and the recent feature on Tekashi 6ix9ine, rap's super villain.
Each ticket includes access to a pre-show mixer, where Charlotte music-lovers will have the chance to mix and mingle with Brittany and Brendan, indulge in specialty cocktails from the cash bar and hear an exclusive set from local band Sinners & Saints.
Joni Deutsch, podcast manger for WFAE, hosts the pre-show. In addition to leading the public radio station's chart-topping podcast productions, Joni is also the creator and host of WFAE's Charlotte music podcast Amplifier, recently honored for excellence in arts and music podcasting by Charlotte Magazine, the local Edward R. Murrow Awards and The Webby Awards (called "The Internet's Highest Honor" by The New York Times.) Joni is an NPR Music contributor (writing about Lizzo, Tyler Childers, Mark Ronson and beyond) and has previously acted as guest host of the legacy NPR Music program Mountain Stage.

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
