More Carrboro Music Festival!!

Filed under: Carrboro Music Festival, Music — Tags: , , , , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 5:45 pm

The Tony Galiani Band entertained crowds with their “Upstream Jazz” in the Wynn Theater Sunday afternoon during the Carrborro Music Festival. Down the hall, Random FX wowed the audience with a genre they may own the market on, semi-improvised spacey electronic.

Two really weird things have happened to me today–one was running into a friend I used to work with at a movie theater when I was 16, who is now a cop working the festival. The other was that Jim Dennis, the owner of the Music Loft and a friend of mine, is in Random FX! Carrboro really is a small town.

I’m getting burnt out and so are my cameras’ batteries–this will be it for our coverage of the Carrboro Music Festival. I hope you enjoyed it–I definitely did.

Carrboro Music Festival: Bored Before 3:00


I’m going to be doing semi-live coverage today of the bands playing at the ArtsCenter as part of the Carrboro Music Festival today, and I’m super excited about it! I’ve set up camp in the ArtsCenter and I’ll be updating this thing band by band (as time allows).

I was so excited about this festival that I accidentally got to the ArtsCenter three hours before any bands started performing. Oops. Following this are some shots I took while wandering around the rest of the festival!

ArtsCenter bands start at 3:00 with the Magnolia Klezmer Band (they play “old time Jewish party music,” I’m intrigued) in the Earl and Rhoda Wynn Theater and Gypsy Town (“original ‘southern California style’ folk-rock”) in the West End Theater. Here’s a full schedule!

The Season Opening of the Monti

Filed under: Theater — Tags: , , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 12:31 am

The Monti opened its season with both some laughs and some tender moments. Five storytellers captivated a sizeable crowd at the ArtsCenter with their own unique take on the theme of heroism. For those unfamiliar with it, The Monti is a storytelling show. Five performers each tell a story about 12 minutes centered around a central theme.  The Monti is held once a month. Look for more photos from the next show in October.
