The Kraken, 2823 NC Highway 54 W, in Chapel Hill, is a roadhouse a few miles west of downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro and a few miles east of Saxapahaw. It features a great front porch, free pool, and live music. They also show all the UNC basketball games.
The Kraken, like all bars in North Carolina, is closed for while.
However, every Wednesday night, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., they will stream a FREE show to you: Shake Sugaree Residency with Jonathan Byrd and the Pickup Cowboys.
Since the dawn of 2018, Jonathan Byrd, Johnny Waken and Austin McCall have performed almost every Wednesday from 7-10pm, stunning the community with daring feats of musical prowess, enchanting poetry and rousing lyrics, inspiring rowdy singalongs, randy comments, raucous laughter and righteous applause.
And, although the show can’t continue to a live audience, it continues through technology!
Please donate to The Kraken to help keep them going during the shutdown.
This will be a live stream only event. Please don’t park in the Kraken’s parking lot because it can draw attention from local officials, who might think that the bar is open.
There are several ways to watch the live stream:
