The Untitled Interview #161 – Hopscotch Edition: Starring Gauntlet Hair

If there’s one thing I love, it’s going to a new festival for the first time. And this weekend yours truly shall be heading down to Raleigh for some serious festival goodness in the form of Hopscotch. With a varied, all sorts of awesome lineup, I have no doubt this weekend will be a hot diggity dog dandy. I tracked down some of the most interesting out-of-town prospects playing Hopscotch this year to get their collective take on the joy of fests.

In medieval times, you could either (or perhaps both) take up the gauntlet or throw down the gauntlet. I think Coloradoans Gauntlet Hair probably do a little of both. Their electropartyrock is lively and pretty, but at the same time doesn't mess around. The more I hear, the more I like. Gauntlet Hair's dastardly duo Andy and Craig talk festivals below, and I sure do hope Craig got him a funnel cake while he was in Raleigh.

Andy:
...

Craig:
Funnel cakes.
