Hopscotch Music Festival 2017 (Raleigh, NC) day 4 - 9/10/2017

But wait, there's more... For the first time in its eight year history, the Hopscotch Music Festival officially extended into Sunday, with an afternoon long program held at the Red Hat Amphitheatre. While Sundays have always brought some final day parties for those who still had the energy, this was the festival's first foray into a fourth day of programming. The day focused on indie, with NC postpunks Jenny Besetzt; noise rockers Cloud Nothings; Mary Timony playing a set of songs from her first band, Helium; local alt country favorites Mount Moriah, and indie weirdo Cass McCombs. Angel Olsen got the honor of playing the closing set of the festival, playing songs from her latest album My Woman. While attendance was sparse compared to the height of the weekend, that wasn't a bad thing - instead, it offered the chance to take in a little more music and keep the weekend going for a little bit longer in a much more relaxed environment, and made the wait for Hopscotch 2018 seem that much shorter.
