Cats Cradle

So I'm back at North Carolina . This is why you dont see me anymore at night in Philly. 
I miss Philly. New Jersey not so much.
Anyway I went to the famous Cats Cradle in North Carolina to check out Pains of being pure at heart.

Went to a bar called Reservoir first to get my drink on.

They didn't serve any hard liquor in Cats Cradle so I went here first.

Cats Cradle is where all  the majority of alternative acts perform in Chapel Hill. This is where I used to watch bands like Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Guided by Voices back in the early 90s.
