Most bands would probably view the Hopscotch Music Festival as just another stop on the long fest circuit. It’s got a solid lineup this year (Public Enemy! Panda Bear! Broken Social Scene!), but in the big scheme of things Raleigh, North Carolina isn’t a must-hit destination. Unless you’re from Raleigh, North Carolina. The Rosebuds are, and to celebrate their inclusion in the festival they’ve released a new cover of the Bee Gees’ so-classic-you’re-sick-of-it “Stayin’ Alive.”

The cover slows the funk down, sounding like a lonely guy trying to convince himself and the world that he’s cooler than he is. “A woman’s man, no time to talk”? Doubt it. Download their other Hopscotch-promoting track “Secret Life of the Rosebuds” here. If you’re in the Raleigh area, buy tickets!
