Raleigh's Hopscotch Music Fest lineup announced

Holy guacamole. The Hopscotch Music Fest in Raleigh is not playing around.

Maybe it speaks to Raleigh's musical history or Grayson Currin's upward climb on the Pitchfork ladder, not really sure, but they turned in a dandy of a lineup for the Sept. 9-11 fest that hardly anyone can complain about.

Relevant national acts?

Public Enemy, Panda Bear and Broken Social Scene will headline, with this being one of only two Panda Bear shows this year. The Rosebuds, The Love Language and No Age will open for those bands on each night of the fest.

Others include Atlas Sound, a return of Harvey Milk, Lucero, Pattern is Movement, Tortoise.

Flavors of the week?

How bout Cults, Javelin, Future Islands, Akron/Family and Washed Out...

Respect for locals?

In addition to the plum spots for The Rosebuds and The Love Language, local acts are well-represented, including Midtown Dickens, Megafaun, Hammer No More The Fingers, I Was Totally Destroying It, Gray Young, The Kingsbury Manx, American Aquarium plus a whole lotta many more.

According to Indy Week, authors and musicians will be talking, such as @1000timesyes Twit-maker Christopher Weingarten discussing his book about Public Enemy.
