We're still smiling after an awesome long weekend in Raleigh, NC for our second time to Hopscotch Music Festival. We had a great time exploring Raleigh and getting a chance to discover new bands, revisit with some of our favorites, and finally catch some of our favorite up and coming bands live.
Some highlights of the festival include seeing thousands of people sing along to Sylvan Esso, a band whose music we've coveted since they only had one song on Soundcloud, and drinking wine in a fancy ass theater for a Young Thug show. Raleigh, of course, was the star of the festival and this year we were able to revisit old favorites (like Raleigh Times and Raleigh Beer Garden) and discover new ones like Boxcar Barcade (we pretty much timed all of our shows to account for an air hockey pit stop every night) and Crank Arm Brewery.
To get a full taste of what we were up to this past weekend, check out the vlogs Caleb made of each day below!
Day 1 (In which we were surrounded by the biggest of Wolf Parade fans and were inspired by their dance moves):

Day 2 (In which my fandom for Anderson .Paak exploded and Caleb found his happy place being two feet away from Young Thug):
Day 3 (In which Sylvan Esso turned it up for their hometown, Vince Staples was a boss, and we played even more air hockey):
Let the countdown begin to Hopscotch 2017!
