This story is proudly presented by Charlotte Eye Ear Nose & Throat Associates, P.A. Whether you’re going to an in-person show or still streaming from home, let the pros at CEENTA make sure your ears are hearing every single music note with their state-of-the-art audiology services. Plus, don’t sleep on their online scheduling.

Live music is back.

After a year of livestreams, many are ready to return to in-person shows. When the Evening Muse announced their first shows back, for example, tickets sold out in an hour.

Below is a list of where and when you can get your taste of live in-person music in April in and around the Queen City.

Be smart: If you do plan on attending an in-person performance, please do so responsibly. Wear a mask when you’re not eating or drinking and stay a safe distance from others.
