Finding good music in Chapel Hill

An educated, literate and lover of well written and performed live music
should go anywhere but these places;
Bull City HQ
Broad Street Cafe
Cosmic Cantina Lounge
Marvell Event Center
Tir Na Nog
Cause this is where us uneducated lovers of music go to see bands play
careful of these spots if you are on the road too...
The Flying Anvil
The Orange Peel
Welcome to North Carolina though! Glad you like the food and stuff.
