Rustic lo-fi rockers Woods
The Indy Week’s upcoming Hopscotch Music Festival has been getting a handful of great press over the past few months after announcing its lineup back in March. Today, they are adding a few more big names for the September weekend including Wu Tang alumni Raekwon, local folksters Bowerbirds, rustic lo-fi rockers Woods, and Scandinavian psychedelic lords Dungen.
Raekwon will join Grammy-winning producer 9th Wonder of Durham Friday, Sept. 10, at Lincoln Theatre for a showcase curated by 9th Wonder. Nearly a dozen local groups will join that bill, including Actual Proof, The Away Team, Big Remo, Kaze, K-Hill, Rapsody, The Remix Project, Skyzoo and Tyler Woods.
Hopscotch is adding a strong pool of local acts to its inaugural lineup, too: Raleigh rockers Bright Young Things will play, as will Chapel Hill’s two-drummer, two-bassist terror squad, In the Year of the Pig. Asheville’s soulful Floating Action and Chapel Hill’s anxious Bellafea complete the lineup additions.
