Phew! Still recovering from the non-stop action of this past weekend’s Hopscotch Festival, even after catching a relatively small percentage of the 175 bands who performed. In close proximity around downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, I caught all or part of just 13 sets, by my count. I feel like I just mainlined music for 72 hours straight nonetheless. From Screaming Females first night show stealing, to an unexpected afternoon sidewalk show from local jangle pop legends the dBs, to the friendly bicycle taxi that got me to a downtown opera house in record time to see Lambchop, the ready sense of ease, fun, scope, and discovery was pretty tough to top.
