Catch a Show at Cat's Cradle: Willie Watson / Heather Maloney
The Cradle is a top spot to catch a show and has been for 40 years—they've got the names to back that claim up. They haven't turned their back on local though—plenty of small acts take the stage.
Artists of all genres, from Nirvana and Iggy Pop to John Mayer and Trampled By Turtles, have taken this stage. If that doesn't have you amped up, don't worry, they squeeze in plenty of local artists and have become the go-to spot for album release parties in the area.
The standing-room only venue has an intimate and grungy vibe that allows you to see acts that usually take the bigger stages in a smaller setting. Grab a PBR at the bar in the back and get ready to groove. The bar is cash only, so if you're planning to imbibe come prepared—and while you're at it buy an iconic t shirt!
