Here’s my plan for Hopscotch 2019 evening shows (no day parties yet). Headers link to Spotify if you wanna listen there. Here’s a master-playlist that combines all of the below stuff into one.
Thursday City Plaza
Thursday Club Shows
Friday City Plaza
Really sad about Dave Berman’s passing – I was looking forward to Purple Mountains. Their spot is currently listed as TBA.
Jenny Lewis was amazing last year at the NCMA. Wouldn’t it be great to hear the Watson Twins join Jenny Lewis for Rise Up With Fists?
Friday Red Hat
I like Dirty Projectors, but they’re difficult – I get it. Blake, I sometimes love, but often get weary of. We’ll see how that goes.
Friday Club Shows
OK – I’m going with Caroline Rose at Lincoln over Watson Twins at Pour House. While I love the Watson Twins, I mostly love ’em combined with Jenny Lewis. I’m hoping that they show up at Jenny’s City Plaza show. Fingers crossed. My sis saw Caroline Rose last year and said she puts on a great show. Also – really excited about Orville Peck!
Saturday City Plaza
So, City Plaza shows start early on Sat. But Indigo Souza (on at 2:30pm) is great. It’ll be a challenge making that show with all of the good day parties…
Saturday Red Hat
I’ve been a fan of !!! for a long time. That Giuliani track is one of my faves. Haven’t been as in-love with their recent stuff, but it should be a good dance.
Going with Birds of Avalon at Kings over Reese McHenry at Slim’s (which should be awesome), because I’ve seen Reese like 4 times this year. Both are solid bets, tho.
Gruff Rhys is the lead of the awesome-but-now-defunct Super Furry Animals.
Gonna finish crazy with What Cheer? Brigade over the more-mellow Sarah Shook b/c it feels right.
