Churchkey at Hopscotch 2011!

The 2011 Hopscotch Music Festival kicks off in less than a week! We’re psyched to have so many Churchkey bands involved. This page is your guide to where you can find Churchkey-related happenings throughout the festival weekend.

You can get live updates from us throughout the festival by following @churchkey on Twitter. You might also be amused by following @stevesjones, @kylecmiller, and @jordanlawrence; all three of us will be at the festival all weekend. If you show up at the right dayparty on Thursday, you might also be able to catch Steve Jones sitting in on bass with some good friends of ours.
