Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #15: Acid Chaperone

It's that time, y'all. Hopscotch time. Despite being a relative new kid on the festival block, with every year the Raleigh festivus gets bigger and harder to ignore. And I'm delighted to report that after a brief hiatus, your intrepid hostess will be venturing down I-85 to check out this year's impressive musical offerings. The only bummer is that I can't see every band the festival has to offer. These are my Hopscotch picks, imperative listening whether you're going to be in Raleigh this coming weekend or not.

A lot of what makes Hopscotch so rad is that there's a ton of local bands that get on the bill. And when the proving ground is as fertile as the Triangle, that means seeing some pretty great local talent. Acid Chaperone is one of these local Raleigh outfits, and they peddle a sound that makes your girl quite happy. Loud, trippy, Krauty psych rock played with a freewheeling, anything goes kind of vibe. That's the ticket, y'all. That's definitely the ticket.
