Sounds Of Hopscotch 2018: Empath

Of all the festivals that exist across the US of A, Hopscotch has to be one of the best. This gem of a festival has a great location (downtown Raleigh), and benefits from seriously strong curation year after year. I've had a great time whenever I've been, and if you're heading down this year you're in for a ton of treats. I've got some suggestions for you, and I hope you'll check these folks out regardless of whether you'll be Hopscotch-ing or not.

I've got to hand it to Philly. For a place that has such notoriously crabby sports fans, it sure does inspire a whole lot of awesome music. The latest in that tradition is Empath, a four-piece with a yen to rage - but in a pretty, sensitive kind of way. This is music that speaks to being good to each other, and the kind of noisy glow that comes from that.

Empath plays Kings on Friday night.
