On the Beat

Hopscotch 2015 will be a psychedelic smash

Hopscotch is coming, and the festival has put out its band list for year six, the 2015 edition. Check the acts on the poster, or listed in alphabetical order below.

At a glance, the first name that really jumps out from the acts below the main headliners is Roky Erickson, the great (and greatly troubled) frontman for ’60s-vintage Texas psychedelic-rock icons 13th Floor Elevators.

Hopscotch happens Sept. 10-12 in various venues across downtown Raleigh, and tickets are on sale now. Check details here.
