Philly Rock Band Hop Along to Play Sonic Sessions Series at the Rock Hall

Concert Announcement


The Philadelphia rock group Hop Along has gotten some good press lately. Rolling Stone magazine praised the band's second album, Painted Shut, and included the band in its list of 10 New Artists You Need to Know. The group has also performed a recent NPR Tiny Desk concert. In addition, it's slated to play the Made in America festival in September.

With support from local acts Goldmine and ShiSho, the band will also play a Sonic Sessions concert on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The concert begins at 8 p.m. and admission is free. The concert will take place on the Museum’s outdoor stage, weather permitting.
