The News & Observer posted two articles in Sunday’s big-box-ad-spilling paper dealing with this week’s Hopscotch Music Festival. Too bad both articles painted a picture of a festival that is barely comparable to SXSW or Coachella and is bound to lose money. From my discussions with the organizers of Hopscotch, neither of these are priorities or even agendas of the festival.
Why compare Hopscotch to SXSW? Coachella? Why not let’s just support the Independent’s attempt to bring out the local music scene in our area by bringing in a handful of national acts and mix them up into a festival that could be one of the best uses of all the music clubs in Downtown Raleigh, ever. Hell, we’re already for next year. GO HOPSCOTCH!
N&O: It’ll be Hard to Unseat Austin (Too bad they aren’t trying)
N&O: Hopscotch is music to the ears of Raleigh boosters (P.S. It’s music to our ears too)
Also, by the way News & Observer, stop using that ridiculous Tynt Copy/Paste service when copying a link from your website, we just linked to your site a few times in this one article and don’t need a reminder where our information comes from. Thanks.
