Live Out Loud music festival this weekend at NCMF, proceeds benefitting Free Store & Samaritan’s Feet

Posted on 15 Sep 2011 by Robert Forquer

Saturday, September 17, the place to be for live music in Charlotte is the NC Music Factory.

Live Out Loud Charlotte is a music festival featuring 17 bands on 3 stages, and is being headlined by Paper Tongues, who will be playing their last show in Charlotte for many months as they head into the studio to record their next album. The bands, which mostly hail from Charlotte will be taking the stages at Butter, Wet Willies and The Saloon starting at 4 pm, and set times will be staggered in order to allow the audience to catch as many of the bands as possible.

The proceeds from the concert will be going to benefit two local Charlotte charities; Free Store Charlotte and Samaritan’s Feet. These two organizations provide items to those in need, but  their true focus is on building relationships with the friends they come in contact with.

Everyone person has value” says Paul Fisher, co-founder of the Free Store, “the Free Store is designed to provide a safe place for people to build relationships.”

Manny Ohonme, the founder of Samaritan’s Feet also understands the value of relationships. It was a missionary that provided him with his first pair of shoes at age 9, and that set in motion a series of events that changed his life, and caused him to want to spend his life changing the lives of others. His goal: 10,000,000 pairs of shoes on 10,000,000 people in 10 years.

Other bands playing the event include the Jupiter Tide, S.O.Stereo, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Pradigy GT, Campbell the Band and My Epic.

Gates open at 2pm and tickets are $20.00. For specific bands and start times, visit or Live Out Loud Charlotte’s Facebook page.
