Hopscotch 2011

The second annual Hopscotch Festival will go down in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, across 12 different venues with over 135 bands, from September 8th through 10th. The lineup this year runs the gamut of independent music... from traditional indie staples (The Flaming Lips, Guided By Voices, Superchunk) to southern-inflected rock (Drive-By Truckers) to noise (Prurient) to hip hop (Beans) to garage (Jeff The Brotherhood) to funk (Budos Band) to metal (Krallice), and everywhere in between (Swans, Rhys Chatham, etc etc). Tickets are currently on sale. Full lineup is below.

Hopscotch happens almost three months after Guided By Voices play a Brooklyn Northside Festival show in McCarren Park (tickets) which is one day after Beirut plays a Northside Festival show on the same McCarren Park stage with... Sharon Van Etten (though she may have been accidentally announced at one point, they officially kept her placement on the bill under wraps until after Saturday's Music Hall of Williamsburg show). Tickets for Beirut/SVE are still on sale, and another opener will be added too.

Guided by Voices (whose Brooklyn show also has more openers coming) are also playing Pitchfork in July with Animal Collective whose Prospect Park show is now on AmEx presale.

Swans' upcoming NYC show is now on AmEx presale too.

What does this event have to do with Brooklyn or Vegans?

This is a pretty impressive line-up, considering the size of the event.

"guided by profits"

Calling GBV sell-outs?? I'm sure your life is laughable at best, considering NOBODY would pay a dime to hear what the f*ck you have to say.

All bands should leave in a shack, not make money, only play New York once a year, never reunite, and commit suicide before they're 28.

...never play Terminal 5, never play a ToddP show, be male, never give a song to a commercial, get rated poorly by Pitchfork...

Eat lots of hummus, have a 7.5 in cock and talk about during the concert, know the schedule for when Daft Punk will be taking the stage...
