I saw all or most of the sets of 26 bands in 3 days & heard snippets of 5 or 6 more bands. Overall, it was a great festival. A ton of music packed into three days. If the exact same lineups were all playing next weekend, I could pick a completely different schedule for myself and still have just as much fun. Here is what I saw (links to photos):
Hopscotch maybe over, but the good music in the area is far from done. Just a few of the bands playing in the next 10 days: Frontier Ruckus, Jay Clifford, Superchunk, Sea Wolf, SPARKcon, Paleface, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, The Old Ceremony, The Moaners, American Aquarium, Drive-By Truckers, Samantha Crain, Murder by Death, & Titus Andronicus. If you went to Hopscotch, but don’t usually go to shows locally, look around, there are lots of great shows by local & touring bands every week. Go out, rock & roll.
