Nope, different thing altogether.
This is a gypsy type band; Estradasphere's bassist, Tim Smolens' brother, Doug is on guitar and their previous albums have had some folks from Estradasphere on them.
It's pretty good stuff, I'd say.

I've been in Raleigh 5 years now and haven't gone to any of the 3 Hopscotch's... maybe next year?
All the bands I'd want to see this year I've seen many times already (the Roots about 5 times from 99 to 2006)... too many local acts I've never heard.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure I'd like quite a few of them, but if I'm gonna drop 175 bucks for a festival I want to be keen on seeing more than like 5 of them.

I hope it kicks ass, though.
May stroll downtown to see what's going on though.
