Such a fun place to be! The reviewer below me is an idiot. This is an awesome place to see your favorite bands if you are ready to let loose and have a good time. The crowd will definitely get a little wild at sometimes if its... (more)

They get great acts to play. No doubt. However, I've seen more than a few bands there and would prefer almost any venue to the Cradle. Bands are nearly always hours late starting, which wouldn't be so bad if the venue... (more)

First of all, the information in the "info" section is incorrect. Cat's Cradle is generally all-ages, but you'll be carded at the door if you want to drink (per usual). At certain shows, the Cradle will hire some... (more)

I really like going to concerts at Cat's cradle. It can be a bit crowded at times when there's an especially big name playing, but most of the time, it's pretty nice. The bands that play there follow the spectrum of music... (more)

Located just minutes from the UNC campus, Cats Cradle is a great place to listen to live music from a wide array of bands. Cats cradle has concerts every week for a pretty low price. The only thing I would change about the... (more)
