Hopscotch Music Festival 2013 | The Speakers-Endorsed Track


Well, it's September, folks, and the SIC gang here in North Carolina have been busy preparing ourselves to traverse the annual Hopscotch Music Festival, which amazingly, is now in it's fourth year of existence! We've been consecutively staying up 30 minutes later each week for a month now, to get our bodies used to the shock of those final set times that stretch into the wee hours of the morning, and drinking absinthe and other hard beverages so our liver won't fail us midway through that 12th PBR.

We've also been feverishly studying this year's lineup to best guide you through the plethora of bands making up the schedule this year -- and we can honestly say, we are completely fucking stoked.  Not only do we get a few legendary favs like Spiritualized and The Breeders, but we've also learned a ton about some of the up-and-coming bands that the festival is truly all about.

Check out our officially endorsed track below -- and feel free to tell us where we're going to be missing something special as currently laid out.

Enjoy!

  1. The plaza shows will go until 11:00pm on Friday night and probably 10:30pm on Saturday night, so you're definitely going to miss some of the earlier club shows on those nights.
