I think you could argue that there are two southern college music
circuits; the jamrock-Hootie-and-white-jeep circuit and the alt.indie-
twang-noise-ugly-glasses circuit. The Cradle serves both circuits;
most other spots serve one more than the other.
You can make a living playing on the first circuit, which is
interesting. You can get a following overseas playing the other,
which is also interesting. R.E.M. may be the source of both scenes.
The emergence of DMB and Superchunk might have been where they
diverged forever, but I wasn't around here then to confirm.
