Hopscotch Music Festival 2013 – Lineup Announced

And here we are folks. I had told you nearly 3 months ago to go ahead and grab your early bird tickets. Today, at 10:00 am, you can probably see why. North Carolina’s Hopscotch Music Festival has announced their 2013 lineup, which will feature, among D.I.’s favorites, Spirtualized, Kurt Vile and The Violators, and The Rosebuds. Heck, on a personal note, I am extremely excited to see Earl Sweatshirt live for the first time.

Regardless, I’d highly suggest taking a look at the lineup for yourself and hell, try to snag a ticket as soon as possible. Prices will only go up and it’s definitely worth your while to see a particularly unique, city wide music festival experience which just recently got affirmation, once again, from Pitchfork. See ya in Raleigh, North Carolina this September and, of course, see ya next Saturday, May 4th for our joint show with Noise Level Magazine featuring Slow Animal, Wellboys, Canada, & Hairyman (the surprise final act) over at Race Manor. Oh, and get the hell outside: it’s beautiful.

Zorch – Sign to Sargent House/New Album in Works

Zorch, Austin, TX‘s hyper-kinetic duo, premiered a new song, “We All Die Young“, a release from their forthcoming full length. The track is available through SPIN Magazine with the full length album expected to be released this summer. Clearly the big change, however, is that Zorch has signed on with Sargent House for management and label. This, while a massive change, is not necessarily a massive surprise.

Zorch is composed of Zac Traeger (keyboards, omnichord, vocals) and Shmu (drums, omnichord, vocals), whom hail from Wisconsin and Canada respectively. The duo originally met around Boston and after moving to Austin in 2009, the foundation of what would become Zorch was laid. After years of building up a reputation within the city’s DIY scene, Zorch will again play their annual multi-performance marathon during SXSW in Austin this March (listed below), marking a welcomed combination of both their roots and their future.

Take a listen and go ahead, get excited. Frankly, I always assumed Zorch was already on Sargent House so the move is a welcomed decision in my mind. But who knows? Maybe you disagree with me to which I simply say: you’re wrong. Indulge yourself to some experimental beauty while at work, in your classroom, or simply walking down freezing streets. It won’t be long till March comes along, the beginning of a long overdue spring and summer (time is relative, get over it). Till then.

Hopscotch 2013 – Tickets On Sale Fri, 2/01

Hopscotch Early Bird Tickets

In case ya didn’t gather by now, I live in Philadelphia but I am originally from North Carolina. With that kind of knowledge, as well as experience reading the material I produce, you could probably guess then that I have attended the Independent‘s Hopscotch every year since its inception in 2010. An affordable music festival with an amazing lineup of both the major acts as well as those niche groups, Hopscotch has always been a pleasure to attend between the city plaza shows and the smaller, venue shows going rampant throughout Raleigh, NC.

It is with this thought that myself, as well as Dissociative Identity Productions as a whole, would like to invite, nay, encourage each and every one of you to buy your early bird tickets, available this Friday, February 1st. Clearly the early bird special will have a limited quantity so be sure to try and buy it earlier in the day rather than later in order to ensure an amazing deal.

Anyways, I know this article comes across as just a sales pitch. And frankly, I guess it kind of is. But let me assure you no: I am not being paid or reimbursed for shoving this sales pitch to you. Rather I have fallen in love with this music festival, and so should you. Get your ticket this Friday and see ya in NC for another amazing Hopscotch Music Festival!
