Hopscotch 2011 Day 2: Pepper Rabbit at Five Star, Wembley at The Union

Fresh off the release of their latest album, Red Velvet Snowball, Los Angeles-based Pepper Rabbit packed fans into the bar area at Five Star Friday evening for an energetic set. I only arrived in time to see the last few songs of the set, but the crowd seemed nearly entranced by the duo's synth pop.

Across the Warehouse district, Wembley fans at The Union were a little more low key as the Hillsborough four-piece played a set laced with dreamy, piano-driven tunes as well as more upbeat ones, such as "(Did You Give Him His) Pills," off their EP, You Are Invisible. Though it had been a couple years since I'd seen the group live, their set reminded me why memory has always looked up on them favorably.
