WXDU Hopscotch 2014 Coverage, w/photos by PJ Sykes

Well, it's hard to believe, but Hopscotch 2014 is in the history books. Many thanks to Cory Rayborn of Three Lobed Recordings for another successful day-party collaboration. Thanks also to all the performers: Daniel Bachman, Zeke Graves, Nathan Bowles, Mike Gangloff, Jenks Miller + Rose Cross NC, Little Black Egg Big Band, Sunburned Hand of the Man, MV+EE, Mary Lattimore, Thurston Moore & Ryan Sawyer. Thanks to our dear friends at Kings Barcade for putting up with this silliness year after year. Thanks to Jonas Blank of NYCTaper for providing an immaculate audio feed for our simulcast, as well as [some] recordings for download after the fact (keep checking back to nyctaper.com for more uploads).

Thanks to all of our WXDU DJs who tweeted throughout the weekend. Thanks to Zachary Lechner for attending far too many shows, and writing up his thoughts about all of them in the following posts:
