One of the main reasons Rolling Stone magazine voted Chapel Hill the #2 most rocking college town in America. Whether you fancy bluegrass, hip-hop, punk, indie, or flamenco, there will be a show for you. Bands, big and small, constantly sneak a stop in Chapel Hill to play the uber-cool Cradle. One night you'll be grooving to the stylings of KRS-One and then shaking your hips to Death Cab for Cutie the next. The venue itself oozes with that cool and dingy rock n roll vibe with obscure posters of concerts from 1989. You'll instantly find yourself dancing along with your fellow music savvy clubgoers. If you're planning a trip make sure to schedule a stop.
