Evening Muse

Saturday night in NoDa

I spent this Saturday night with one of my favorite fun girlfriends in the historical arts district of Charlotte: NoDa (short for North Davidson Street).  Just wanted to tell you about a few of the hot spots we went to…First, we went to the Evening Muse for the “early” show. This small venue is a great place to catch some live music. On the weekends, they typically have an “early” show at 8pm and follow it up with a later show around 10:30. Check their website for upcoming shows.

Aslyn and Toby Lightman at the Evening Muse

We went to see Aslyn, a singer-songwriter extraordinaire hailing from Atlanta. Never had I seen such a combination of confidence &  talent behind a piano. She told touching stories to go along with the songs and paired up with sultry songbird Toby Lightman. Great set and lots of soul. Well done, ladies.

Next we wandered a few steps down the street to Solstice Tavern. This was my first time inside the bar and I was pleasantly surprised at the roomy patio bar that we found out back!  We didn’t eat, but a quick glance at their menu…looked yummy!

Finally, a few steps further down North Davidson Street led us to the infamous Salvador Deli. This place is a blast. We jammed *free* to a funky band outside the deli and mingled with some friendly locals. Of course, I have to mention my favorite NoDa eatery, Cabo Fish Taco…what’s a night out in NoDa without grub from CFT??
