Live music, and magic show, at The Oasis in Carr Mill (no cover)

The Oasis in Carr Mill is a coffee and tea shop at 200 N. Greensboro Street, Carrboro. It’s inside of Carr Mill (behind Weaver Street Market.) It can be found between Elmo’s and Tandem.

During the day it’s open as a coffee and tea house and cafe, serving coffee, kratom, kava, CBD products, pastries and chocolates, including vegan and gluten-free options.

In the week nights it hosts free presentations on life-affirming topics (holistic health, environmental issues, etc.) and on weekend nights it hosts music, movies and more. All events are free, but guests are invited to tip the performers. 

Many of The Oasis’ events are very popular, and it’s recommended that you come early to get a seat and a drink. The cafe closes down during the performances.

You can keep track of The Oasis’ upcoming events on their Facebook page.

Here are a few upcoming events:

Live acoustic music: Benny Roman
Saturday, January 11th, 2020
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Free

Benny Roman is a singer/songwriter and a student at the University of Maryland. Born and raised on The Beatles, he’s a sucker for silly love songs and anything by Paul McCartney, as well as folk music and all genres old and new. He plans to busk his way across the country this summer to raise money for UNICEF in his ‘Singing for Change’ campaign.

Live music: Samadhi — Soulful Kirtan Band
Saturday, January 18th, 2020
7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Free

Samadhi is a Raleigh-Durham NC based band that shares ancient mantras, set to blues, soul, folk, and pop genres to create a space for attendees to chant in call and response fashion. This practice, kirtan, can be spiritual, meditative, calming, fun and a great way to build community. And Oasis is a perfect place to do it! Get your tea and nosh at 7. Music starts at 7:30.

Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie — Seven Years in the Counterculture (a one-man play)
Saturday, January 25th, 2020
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Free

The counterculture of the 60s and 70s has been viewed as everything from naive to hedonistic. However, most of these views were formed by observing the movement from the outside. “Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie” offers a vastly different perspective, one developed from within. After graduating college in 1968, Robert Roskind hit the road for seven years. Roskind’s travels lead him into the heart of the counterculture–to Esalen Institute, Tassajara Hot Springs, Big Sur, Vancouver Island, the communes of Oregon and North Carolina, Altamont Pop Festival, Mt. Shasta, the Haight-Ashbury and the “motherland”–Northern California. His personal odyssey, sometimes profane and funny, sometimes profound and serious, reveals this tumultuous era as a cultural and spiritual renaissance that birthed many of the solutions to problems humanity now faces.
