A "Patton" American flag -- reminiscent of the iconic opening scene in the oft-quoted film -- backdrops Tyler's Restaurant & Taproom outdoor stage in Carrboro. The stage is tucked in the lot behind the restaurant and is one of two dozen indoor/outdoor venues for the Carrboro Music Festival. This year's 17th annual event takes over downtown on Sunday, September 28, with about 180 performing acts showcasing a spectrum of musical styles. A kick-off is scheduled for Saturday, September 27, at the Cat's Cradle Back Room.
