A person can live most of their life in one place and never discover everything there is to know about it. Charlotte is a city like that, it seems, and I say that being someone that continues to dig in all directions, with always something new to talk about with the audiences I speak to. The Southern Tiger Collective once sat in the NoDa District, and only recently did I find out it had moved to a part of the city where not only is there major growth going on, but that the move had enabled it to expand 3x times the size and in an area that gives it open isolation, where artists can thrive in the energy of others, truly concentrating on the expression of local artists.
At the invite of a new friend, I broke from much of the isolation from over the past year to rediscover STC, in a spot that I hope they can call theirs for years to come. From here, in the brand new year where we can start to embrace each other again, it’s nice to admit that I thought I knew more about my hometown and its activities. 2021, from here, will be eye-opening and make covering our indie culture fresh. This is just the start of something new.
