The historic Playmakers theater was the venue for the Southern Culture on the Skids concert after the UNC Libraries' opening of the exhibit, Lard Have Mercy, which focused on the 30-years-together band, within their Southern History Collection. We have normally seen SCOTS at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro or in Raleigh at a club that is now closed. The acoustics weren't great, but the venue quite interesting as I learned from the person sitting next to me that this was where Andy Griffith got his start. It has no AC (not a problem in mid-March), limited heat (radiators), and in the summertime the large barn-door type windows can be open-air. I look forward to an opportunity to visit Playmakers again soon and look into offerings at the Paul Green Theater - both close to home and with such history!
