Cat’s Cradle announced two big bookings this afternoon: The Carrboro club presents the mighty harpist Joanna Newsom at Carolina Theatre Thursday, March 25, just ahead of her appearance at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, Tenn. A little more than a month later, Beach House and Washed Out will play the Cradle itself, on May 1. These announcements suggest being patted lightly on the face by tiny, soft kitten paws.
