Dine out, (maybe) see Avetts

The Avett Brothers have cooked a deal with Charlotte's Laurel Market: Buy one of two sandwiches custom-designed by cellist and foodie Joe Kwon and you get a shot at winning two tickets to the band's April 9 show in Charlotte.
Avett Sandwich One: Genoa salami, pastrami, jalapeƱo peppers, mayo, sweet pickles, cucumber, red onion and fresh cilantro on baguette.
Avett Sandwich Two: Avocado, egg over easy, spiced mustard, bibb lettuce, tomato, salt and pepper on toasted sourdough.
Buy one between now and the show date and you're entered to win tickets to the show, at Bojangles Coliseum. (At last count, said the band's Dolph Ramseur, there were 40 tickets left for the 9,000-capacity concert.) Laurel Market is at 114 Cherokee Road; 704-347-4989.
