Hopscotch diaries: Day 2

Posted September 7, 2013

— The second day of Hopscotch Music Fest was all about venue hopping. The Out and About crew wanted to see as many bands as possible, so we hit as many venues as we could. Here are some of our favorite moments from Hopscotch on Friday.

A-Trak turned City Plaza into a club. Great beats that made you want to dance. We weren't quite inebriated enough to show off our moves, but we really enjoyed yours!

The Contemporary Art Museum was also popular during the day, with interactive art exhibits and giveaways. I was there during Colossus' performance, and you could tell the band members were having a blast.

At night, the crowd at Tir na nOg was grooving with Dub Addis and their reggae tunes. I would definitely check them out in the future.

I love having local food trucks scattered around downtown, and I finally got my hands on some Cackalacky Chicken pizza at Pie Pushers! Other trucks I spotted around included Chirba Chirba, Virgil's Jamaican and The Humble Pig.

Downtown was full of people last night for the festival and First Friday, and we hope you all had a blast in Raleigh! We'll see you downtown again tonight for the last Hopscotch shows.
