Over 130 bands performed in Carrboro today.
The 14th annual Carrboro Music Festival spread through 25 indoor and outdoor venues downtown.
The music – mostly rock and blues – lasted throughout the evening. There was never a moment where a band was not playing.
“We’re going to keep on rolling!” exclaimed a graying, long-haired musician on the Weaver Street Market lawn, one of the day’s more popular venues. He kept his promise. His band launched into a new groove quickly, as if to make sure the audience’s ears had no time to relax.
Crowds rolled from one venue to the next, many starting at one of the few indoor venues, Cat’s Cradle, and venturing lazily down Weaver Street. It was a largely nomadic audience — most people were unable to stay put for more than a song or two.
