Legendary band Built to Spill plays the Georgia Theatre with support from two of the most notable names in indie rock right now. Hop Along started as the solo project of singer and guitarist Frances Quinlan, and has developed into a full-on punk band known for Quinlan’s rip-roaring vocals, as well as strong lyrical content that often paints an accurate picture of subjects like abuse and depression. Alex G will also perform. After releasing six albums in six years, G’s laid-back guitar style and heavily distorted vocals have become well known in the college-rock community. He’s most recently gained some national media attention after collaborating with Frank Ocean on his visual album, Endless.

HOP ALONG Buzzworthy folk-punk band with strong female vocals and emo-influenced melodies.
