The Straight 8's 

When: Sat., June 1 2013

"I wanted to have a music venue-type place, and she's always wanted to have a small restaurant, so we put the two together and off we went," explains Blue Note owner Bill Whittington of his and wife Andrea's decision to open the small space at 4125 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd. "So far, so good." For three years of barbecue fixings and music, the venue has been a bastion of blues, jazz and Americana, hosting jams, local favorites and national touring acts. A week of celebratory shows culminates in Saturday's official anniversary party with Carrboro rockabilly wild men The Straight 8s. Sunday is a big day too, as guitarist Will McFarlane of Muscle Shoals Swampers fame returns for the yearly Will Fest jam. —Ashley Melzer
