Wild Wild Geese

Carrboro Music Festival 

When: Sun., Sept. 26, 1-10 p.m. 2010
Phone: (919) 260-0661
Price: Free

If this month's Hopscotch Music Festival encouraged attendees to hurriedly experience as much music as possible, today's 13th annual Carrboro Music Festival allows you to take in tunes at your leisure. With 160 bands crammed into 25 downtown venues in one day, you couldn't take in a third of the acts. But free entry means there's no pressure to have to. Just stroll about charming downtown and let your ears guide you to whatever stage feels best. Take in some outdoor rock as you enjoy the bounty of the town's taco trucks. Recharge with an Americano and try some intimate folk inside Open Eye Café. There's no chance to mess up. A change of pace is always just around the corner.

And while the wandering spirit is what this event is all about, there are highlights worth committing to. Rockabilly great Dex Romweber, the man Jack White says taught him how to be Jack White, plays outside The Station with his trio. On the same stage are Wild Wild Geese—think a catchier, less jam-y Pavement—and Ben Davis and the Jetts—think Sonic Youth hell-bent on making you dance. But other solid sounds, such as the India-infused Appalachia of Hindugrass and the bleeding-heart folk of Salt to Bitters, mean there's reason to keep moving. Whatever sound grabs you, just don't forget a good pair of walking shoes. After all, rambling is half the fun. —Jordan Lawrence
