I hope someone can go and get a recording for us that can't make it. 2 sets of rarities and covers? This sounds pretty awesome!

This pretty much covers what I should have put in that initial post if I'd have stopped to think about it rather than just reacted with the whole WTF thing.

So, thanks db.

I'm thinking this might be worth driving down for. Raleigh's not that far. I mean, it's far. But in terms of things that are far it's not that far.

if it weren't the week i'm getting laid off I'd totally consider going.

ETA: no prob maffj! :)

It's about an 8hr drive from NYC, for those of y'all up there.

Luckily, I live like 20 minutes away. So excited!

little insect: my lease ends August 31 - can I move in with you until the festival is over?

So I can crash at your place again Liza?

Thanks!

That, Alex, depends on how much beer you buy me.

Shoes: yes, sure. You can do all of my law reading for me.

I'll be making the 6 hour drive from Athens, but I can't tape it. Who will step up?

Have they said which day tMG will perform?
April 19, 2012 06:15PM | Re: Hopscotch
The Merge website says tMG are playing on the 7th.

Confirmed on the Hopscotch site, John is playing at midnight on Friday. Which means, for $75, I won't be going :( Hope anyone who goes has a great time.

Just got notification that I'm an official volunteer, which means Hopscotch is a go! Looking forward to this.
July 27, 2012 12:09PM | Re: Hopscotch
so pumped!

a friend in Raleigh said there's some non-Hopscotch acoustic sets at the Videri Chocolate Factory space that include John D., Doug Martsch and a bunch more!? anyone heard of this?
July 31, 2012 01:09PM | Re: Hopscotch
No! But I am pretty enthusiastic about the idea! Keep us updated.
July 31, 2012 02:52PM | Re: Hopscotch
One of my colleagues at nyctaper.com, acidjack, will be attending a lot of the Hopscotch Festival and will make every possible effort to record tMG set.

Is it still a go on two separate sets? I seem to remember hearing that at the beginning, but the schedule doesn't look like it reflects that same plan...

It says "John Darnielle will play two sets by himself on the same night in Fletcher Opera Theater." which I don't think contradicts the schedule, but I guess to be sure I'd ask them.

I feel ya leez, I'm kinda skirting around this 'cause I'm visiting my cousin in NY in September and there's a bus that skirts out of Raleigh at 2:30 am Saturday which could be good timing depending on how on-time these things are. *skirts*

(tu) nyctaper & acidjack!

HI. I should've known there was a thread for this already. Going for the whole festival but a friend and I need a ride from NYC. Anyone know of anything? Maybe even renting a car? Eh? Let me know. My email is sophcw at gmail dot com if you have leads. <3
