The Speakers Endorsed Hopscotch Music Festival Track!



The inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival is almost here, party people of the Triangle, and while laying out the official Speakers in Code endorsed track, this guy just got officially giddy for the festivities to begin. I even geeked-out enough to give you a back-up plan just in case the show of your choice is all full and stuff. (I've been to enough SXSW festivals to know that you're never going to see all your A-list people).

So check out the below list and print it off if you're smart. Looks like we all may want to leave the Black Chukkas at home and opt for some Pumas or something with a bit more arch support instead. Making it to all these shows on time is going to require a bit of dashing, or rickshaw-riding for the wussies.

Also bring this full lineup and map because no matter how well you know downtown, it can get a little overwhelming with thousands of bearded indie-kids running around.
