Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 – Day 3

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 Day 3 – Saturday, September 10th, 2016 Downtown Raleigh I say it every year, but this year it might actually be true: This is my last Hopscotch. It’s not that Hopscotch is anything other than the best curated and executed music festival in the Southeast, but rather that a 3-day festival is a younger man’s game. I was ready to go home midway through Day 2 but I knew there were still some gems to be […]

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 – Day 2

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 Day 2 – Friday, September 9th, 2016 Downtown Raleigh I am really proud of myself for my Hopscotch 2016 – Day 1 recap. I paid attention, took insightful notes, and came away with a solid piece. Then I threw all that out the window for Day 2 as I simply meandered about the city with no real destination in mind.

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 – Day 1

Hopscotch Music Festival 2016 Day 1 - Thursday, September 8th, 2016 Downtown Raleigh As another muggy North Carolinian summer begins to wind down, the town of Raleigh begins to amp up for the annual Hopscotch Music Festival. I got the call from my partners in crime, Lan and Yang, late in the afternoon. They were headed downtown to check out some day parties, one facet of the Hopscotch experience in which I seldom partake. Yes, they are free, fun, and [...]

Hopscotch Music Festival 2015 – Day 3

Hopscotch Music Festival September 12th, 2015 Downtown Raleigh — Wovenhand Lincoln Theater, Downtown Raleigh — Say what you will about Downtown Raleigh, but there is always ample parking. Especially in the deck across from the Lincoln. I flashed my wristband and headed into the venue just as Wovenhand was starting their set, which was considerably more rockin’ than I had anticipated. Their last couple of records translated well to a live setting with a full band in tow. David Eugene […]

Hopscotch Music Festival 2015 – Day 2

Hopscotch Music Festival – Day 2 September 11th, 2015 Downtown Raleigh — TV on the Radio City Plaza, Downtown Raleigh — Hopscotch is a younger man’s game. I couldn’t even be bothered to drag myself back downtown before 8pm so I missed all but Tycho’s last song, which was disappointing since they seemed like they were worth another listen. Instead, I pressed on to TV on the Radio, all the while hoping that I wouldn’t have to cower against the […]

Hopscotch Music Festival 2015 – Day 1

Hopscotch Music Festival – Day 1 September 10th, 2015 Downtown Raleigh — Godspeed You! Black Emperor City Plaza, Downtown Raleigh — Every time I think of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, I am reminded of that line by Seth Rogen in Pineapple Express: “It means that you are gonna go to college next year. You’ll get into Godspeed You! Black Emperor and the fucking Shins. And you’ll blow a bunch of dudes and become a lesbian.” Further perpetuating the eternal question […]
