On September 21st and 22nd, downtown Durham, N. Carolina will come alive for the 39th annual CenterFest. This will be the 2nd year that festival has been back on the streets of downtown Durham, after languishing for several years in a parking lot. I did the show last year and it was so much better on the street compared to in the parking lot. [break]
