The Triangle is known for many things: top universities, great food, innovative research. But one characteristic that sometimes gets overlooked is the impressive music scene.

There are many talented artists in the Triangle. But in addition to the talent, there are countless venues to catch live music.

While these artists aren’t from the region, they will be making a stop in Raleigh, Durham or Carrboro over the next two months. Read about each concert below, or click here for the entire playlist.
