I’m headed to the Hopscotch Festival later this week in (relatively) nearby Raleigh NC. There is a loooong list of bands appearing. I know several that fall into the must-see category for me; The dBs are first among these. I plan on checking out the Jesus and Mary Chain (I bought Psycho Candy when it came out), The Roots (I saw them at the Echo Project Festival and they were very good) and Sunn O))) (mainly because they seem weird enough not to miss, even though friends who know my tastes insist I’ll hate ’em).
Anyway, if you’re reading this and you’d care to weigh in with some suggestions as to who I ought to check out (or avoid), I welcome your input. Thanks. Here’s the full list.
