Music producer turned mogul Thousand Times took the night off as CEO of East Side Edibles to play some tunes at open mic night hosted by legendary bottle shop 'Barts Mart' in Charlotte NC.
The night marked his return after being absent from the Charlotte music scene in recent months as the East Side Edibles empire grows to become a regional player in the North Carolina D8 & CBD market. Thousand Times played a selection of tracks that ranged from slow and melancholy to upbeat and ethereal. Midway through his set, the producer was joined on stage by popular rapper 'Phaze Gawd' for an impromptu performance. With more shows planned in the coming months, Thousand Times seems to be starting a new chapter in his music career.
