THE STATION REOPENS

That didn't take long. In late December, The Station, a longtime staple on Carrboro's Main Street, shuttered along with Southern Rail and The Tiger Room due to the most recent owner's tax debts. But Andrew Moore, who owns The Venable, just a few yards away, swooped in with plans to turn Southern Rail into a forthcoming barbecue joint and to update The Station into a properly intimate rock club. Moore chose wisely in building a staff, selecting Carrboro musician and booking agent Michelle Temple to make the club more than an open-mic joint or free-show afterthought. She's got some interesting ideas, too, including using the club for rock shows on Thursdays and Fridays and reserving Saturdays for strong DJ sets. This weekend, they give it a shot: Kamara Thomas, formerly of Earl Greyhound, offers her current soul-folk on Thursday, followed by the wonderfully gestural classic rock of Transportation (and the intricate indie of Knurr and Spell) on Friday. DJs Fifi Hi-Fi and Mike D christen the decks on Saturday. —Grayson Haver Currin
