Went to the Hopscotch music fest last weekend.

Got a photo pass thanks to Dejami!

Hopscotch is a 3 day music fest held in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina

First stop is in an art gallery.

Hopscotch Sept. 9, 2011

Hmmm..wonder whose set list is this?

Guided by Voices!

The classic 93-96 lineup

Lots of photographers!

Overexposed Bob

This 1996 video is what they looked like back then

This video is a later 2001 version of them with just Bob as the original
GBV. Lot of people didnt like this because
it wasn't "Lo-Fi" anymore. I liked it.
Its very catchy. 

Robert mentioned this would be their last show together as a band.
Its not clear whether he meant the band Guided by Voices or
just this bands line up.

They closed the show with this classic opening track from their earlier album Alien Lanes:

The club is open

Diamond Rings

Twin Shadow

Saw these guys as I headed out to my car.
They were mirroring each other all throughout their walk.
They probably didn't even notice they were doing it.

Anyway, that's it for Sept. 9
