Trash Talk to Play Hopscotch Next Week

Submitted on Aug 27, 2012

As most of you know, Baroness, the metal wizards and makers of one of this year’s best albums, were in a bus accident earlier this month in England. Our thoughts have been with them since; thankfully, news is now out that all band members have been released from the hospital. Due to these circumstances, Baroness have cancelled their upcoming Hopscotch date and all other scheduled shows. We wish them all the best in their recoveries and look forward to trying to get them back to Raleigh in the future. 

Taking over the headlining slot at the Lincoln Theatre next Thursday, Sept. 6, will be none other than Trash Talk, the Sacremento quartet known quite simply as the most enthralling hardcore band playing today. We are very happy they are making the trip from California just for Hopscotch and are grateful for them doing it on such short notice. Trash Talk spent much of their Summer touring Europe with OFF!, is slated to play the Odd Future Carnival in late September in Los Angeles, and will release their new record in October. Their live set is not to be missed. Please see the video below where Trash Talk talk about, among other things, playing festivals. Then, see them here in nine days.

There are two other cancellations to note as well. Ducktails and Mark McGuire will not be performing next week due to a last minute opportunity for Ducktails to join Real Estate on a tour of China. William Tyler—whose brilliant guitar picking can be heard in both his solo work and with the likes of Lambchop, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and Silver Jews—will be taking the headlining slot at The Hive on Thursday, Sept. 6. His show was one of the highlights of Hopscotch 2011, and we’re thrilled to have him back this year. We will announce who will be playing Berkeley Café on Thursday night later this week, so please stay tuned for that update.

Tickets to Hopscotch Music Festival, happening next week from Sept. 6-8, are still available here.

We will update the online and printable schedules soon. See you next week!
