Hopscotch Day 1: Ponderosa & Max Indian

The first night of the Hopscotch Music Festival brought Georgia southern rockers Ponderosa to the Lincoln Theatre. The band tore through a tight set of soulful rock and roll with style and swagger for a small crowd of about a hundred people. They were the first band of the festival (not counting the earlier day party), so the crowd hadn't filed in yet and they certainly missed out.

Later that evening, the lads of Max Indian took the Lincoln Theatre stage for a crowd of about 400 people and rocked their superb pop charm. Carter Gaj led the band through what some are saying could be the band's last show for a while. Talk of a Max Indian hiatus has been floating around for some time. The crowd there danced and grooved to the band's catchy sounds. One attendee could be overheard saying "These guys are awesome" then asking his companion "where are they from?" Right up the road in Carrboro, my friend.

Check out photos of these sets below and stay tuned for more Hopscotch coverage later today and throughout the weekend.
