I think one of the highlights from Hopscotch 2012 was No BS! Brass. When they came on the stage, people's faces just instantly lit up. Hands went up in the air and feet just started moving. The act that went on before them was a saxophonist named Colin Stetson. He was just amazing. He played alto and bass saxophone. I can't even describe his songs. If he is playing near you, do yourself a favor and go check him out. Phil Cook of Megafaun performed on Thursday at the Fletcher Theater. His set was beautiful. His voice was very robust and thunderous, commanding the attention of the entire theater. It was a perfect way to start off my Hopscotch experience. Matthew E. White's "One Incantation Under God" was another great show that happened earlier in the festival. I think some of the players in the brass band were on stage with him as well. His music was spiritual not only in vocal content, but also in musical presence and in the energy of the performers. One of the trumpet players was wearing a pair of blue-frame sunglasses, which made the brass section look extra cool. Thank you Hopscotch for giving the world a great weekend of music. I will definitely be back for many years to come.

No BS! Brass was the most awesome show I have ever seen in my entire life. Those guys up there were trained musicians who played all of my favorite song. The solos were amazing, the tuba player in the back was rockin' and the drummer is sick to death. I am going to go to ever show that is physically possible for me to be at. I can't stress enough how incredible this band is. If you have not seen them before, rectify your situation immediately.
