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.

Of Montreal @ Lincoln Theater

The street was filled from Wilmington to Blount. Clutch performed a plethora of classics as well as a few newer tracks. Brent Hinds of Mastodon even joined them for DC Sound Attack. Mastodon ran through their staple of current concert songs. It was very reminiscent of their 2014 HopScotch performance. All in […]
