Subject: Hopscotch’s Birthday
As you may or may not be aware, the Hopscotch Festival’s fifth birthday is coming up. We will be celebrating from September 4 to September 6. Last year, nobody remembered Hopscotch’s birthday. Of course, if you caught the Raleigh, North Carolina-based festival crying in the bathroom, trying to hide its tears from the rest of us, you already know this. Let’s not have a repeat of last year. Hopscotch is a very nice musical festival that books a lot of great artists, examples being Merzbow, John Cale, Spiritualized, Public Enemy, Guided By Voices, The Mountain Goats, Big Daddy Kane, and Sleep. It deserves better than last year’s shabby treatment.
If you are interested in celebrating Hopscotch’s birthday, there’s a card going around. Additionally, you may purchase tickets on March 1 at the Hopscotch website. Those on the festival’s mailing list, i.e. its real friends, may participate in a pre-sale February 27 and 28. The entertainment (or lineup) will be released to the public in April, though you can follow Hopscotch on Twitter for updates.
We are now taking volunteers for picking up the cookie cake.
