this past saturday night was opening night for charlotte's new uptown amphitheatre at the brand new nc music factory that's set smack dab in the middle of the old factory & warehouse district just outside of uptown charlotte. the setting was amazing for a concert. watching the sun set behind the stage & then seeing the skyline of uptown charlotte shining in the background made for an absolutely perfect night.

jack's mannequin opened up the night with a great set & the fray followed to take home the show. i was highly impressed by the fray live. they put on quite the show. isaac slade, the lead singer, has a voice that just floored me. i don't feel that their recordings do him the justice he deserves.

the uptown amphitheatre is possibly one of the best venues to hit charlotte in years! it's on a much smaller scale than most outdoor venues, seating about 5,000 & honestly there's not really a bad seat in the whole place. even the very back of the lawn had a perfect view of the stage!!

here we are hanging out {aka: sweating our brains out} before the show

the sun setting on the fray

the ladies & chris... he's a lucky guy :)
