If you live here in our area – The Triangle in NC – you know that our newest and biggest music festival Hopscotch is about to kick off in Raleigh. Guided By Voices & The Flaming Lips will headline but there’s 135 local and national acts descending on the area Sept. 8-10.
If you’re like a lot of music fans and you’re a bit of procrastinator, Yep Roc and our local blog of record New Raleigh http://www.newraleigh.com/, have your back.
Starting next Monday 9/6, we’ll be launching a “Fear of Commitment” Twitter contest for all of you who waited a little too long to buy your all-show wristbands and got shut out of the festival when it sold out earlier this week (VIP wristbands have been sold out for over two months).
So never fear, just tweet your best procrastination or “fear of commitment” story (the short version, obviously) tagging @yeproc & @NewRaleigh and we’ll pick a winner on Wednesday 9/7. In addition to 2 VIP all-show wrist bands, the winner will also receive:
One Yep Roc T Shirt
One Yep Roc LP of winner’s choosing (vinyl or CD)
P.S. – Don’t forget to visit Shopscotch and pick up your favorite Yep Roc titles and local handmade art during the festival: 325 Blake St. in City Market
