Here Comes Hopscotch

hopscotch Last year’s inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival was a booming success, showcasing some of the nation’s best up-and-coming indie artists during a three-day stretch across downtown Raleigh. The excitement continued to grow during the Winter as Hopscotch organizers planned their sophomore event (September 8, 9, 10). Last night the official lineup was announced , and it appears the gang is picking up right where they left off last year.

The Flaming Lips and Guided By Voices will carry headlining shows, however other great bands such as Drive-By-Truckers, Superchunk, The Dodos, Japandroids, J Mascis, John Vanderclice, Bandway, and many, many, many more!

    Meh. Thought last year’s lineup was better. Seems like a lot of the rumored artists didn’t make the cut. Oh well, doubt I’d see many with a kid now anyways.
