Hopscotch Music Festival

[Poster by Sarah Parson]
This weekend is the second annual Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC. Tons of great shows will be all over downtown Raleigh from the likes of The Flaming Lips, Xiu Xiu, Black Lips, Braids, Twin Shadow, Toro Y Moi, White Ring, Future Islands and so many more. You can catch a full list of all the performers over here. My favorite record store in the world, Gravity Records, also have a killer day show on Friday at Slim's with the folks from Churchkey Records featuring Last Year's Men, Gross Ghost, Mount Eerie and a few others. Audrey and I will be there all weekend snagging lots of interviews and photos of as much of the event as we can. Essentially next week GOTC will be over run by Hopscotch coverage. Stay tuned after the jump for a list of shows we're especially hoping to catch.
