Although the full lineup has yet to be revealed, the fine folks at Hopscotch Music Festival have announced two artists that will play in September. Danny Brown, coming off of the successful release of his 2011 album XXX was announced to play the festival March 29.
Two days earlier Sunn O))) were put on the bill. This will mark the first show for the doom metal rockers in North America since 2010. They will play Saturday, Sept. 8, in the Memorial Auditorium, showing how one of the festival’s latest venues will be put to work.
This week, we have some very special guests here on Eye on the Triangle. We are excited to welcome Jonathan Smith, Andy Walsh, and Caroline Yopp to our studio to discuss the issues that matter to you, the N.C. State community. Polls close tonight at midnight, so if you haven’t voted yet, be sure to do so. In addition, we bring you stories from Ag Awareness Week, the group Liberty in North Korea’s visit, the imPACKt awards, and a visit by Herman Cain to Wake County. It’s going to be a great show, be sure to tune in!
One of my favorite events of last fall was Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, located in Pittsboro, N.C. Camping out with your friends, seeing incredible live music, and living off campfire food and veggie things for the weekend is a cure for anything that’s been getting you down. And it’s back again for its 10th spring installment, April 19-22.
This spring’s lineup is exciting: Leftover Salmon, Donna the Buffalo, Blitz the Ambassador, The Red Clay Ramblers, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, Rubblebucket, Suénalo, Preston Frank, The Sim Redmond Band, Elephant Revival, David Wax Museum, Driftwood, and Lydia Loveless…
Local acts like Diali Cissokho & Kairaba, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Bombadil, The Beast, Mandolin Orange, Dark Water Rising, Justin Robinson & The Mary Annettes, Greg Humphreys & The Hobex All Stars, Lizzy Ross Band, Music Maker Revue, Midtown Dickens, Rey Norteño, Big Fat Gap, Randy Dean Whitt, New Town Drunks, Sarah Shook & The Devil, Shirlette & The Dynamite Brothers, Apple Chill Cloggers, Onyx Club Boys, Deep Chatham, Curtis Eller, Jeanne Jolly, The Ayr Mountaineers, and Justin Johnson…
And other bands, such as Revelation Mizik, Equanimous Minds, Richie Stearns & Rosie Newton, Jim Avett, Raffa & Rainer, Dirty Bourbon River Show, Harper & Midwest Kind, Old Man Luedecke, The South Carolina Broadcasters, Dutch Bucket System, Galactic Cowboy Orchestra, Farmer Jason, Mad Tea, Bareknuckle Betties, Roxanna & The Rusty Bucket Band, Elkland Art Center Puppets, Town Hall, Kin Ship, and more.
WKNC will be helping you and your friends go this year, with day-passes to giveaway on the Local Lunch, Americana, Blues & Company, The Church of Bluegrass and the Truer Sounds, Both Kinds Radio and our Facebook page. If you impress the DJ, you may even get the newest Bombadil CD All the Rain Promises as part of your prize! Make sure to tune in and have your phones ready so when the DJ asks for it, you’ll be all set to win!
As you know, this week’s Eye on the Triangle had to be canceled. Luckily, we found a new time for next week’s show. It will air on Monday, March 19, at 7 p.m. as opposed to Tuesday. This is for next week only; we will be back to our normal schedule after that. Be sure and tune in for your weekly dose of Eye on the Triangle. See you then!

We were busy working on tonight’s show when we recieved some bad news. Baseball will be broadcasting beginning at 6 p.m., which means that there will be no Eye on the Triangle this week. Unfortunately, there is also a baseball game next week at the same time, so there won’t be a show at 7 p.m. on Tuesday either. We are working on finding another time to broadcast. Stay tuned!

It’s time for our first spring Fridays on the Lawn this year! It will take place Friday, March 30, on Harris Field from 6-8 p.m. Besides FREE food, raffles, and prizes, two awesome local bands will be performing.
Mipso Trio is a folk rock band made up of three UNC students. The band recently sold out Cat’s Cradle and is making a name for themselves in our community.
Clay Pigeons is a four-piece out of Raleigh. You may have heard them play outside Raleigh Times this past First Friday, playing good country music and a few covers.
Also, HeadCount will have a table set up where you can register to vote!
Bring a blanket and a friend, see you there!

The excellent new album from Bowerbirds which is out March 6 via Dead Oceans now has a video to accompany one of the standout tracks, “Tuck the Darkness In.” The video for the track from The Clearing features an inquisitive child’s journey with fish. Although that sounds silly, the video might have you in tears by the end.
