J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 4th September 2013

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. A double dose of awesome tonight as I had both Caleb Caudle and the guys in Roseland up for an interview and live performances, plus a big preview of some of my favorite bands playing at the Hopscotch Fest this weekend in Raleigh. Ought to be a great weekend. And it's a killer show. Hope you enjoy.

Next week, I'll have Ryan Snyder from YES Weekly up with me to do the Indie/Rock Roundtable thing as we discuss our respective Hopscotch experiences and some new releases to boot. Make sure you tune in.

Now, toss the pebble. Onward.]
