Raleigh, NC’s Hopscotch Music Festival, which takes place Sept. 5-7, brings its Road Show series, which aims to showcase North Carolina’s indie rock talent, to Athens for a pretty damn spectacular bill at the 40 Watt. The lineup features two Carolina acts worth your time and money: Floating Action, the vehicle for songwriter Seth Kauffman’s soulful tunes, and Lonnie Walker, a Raleigh band whose rootsy rock has built it a respectable following over the last few years. In a show of cross-culturalism, our town is also well represented. Local gloom-punks Muuy Biien will headline, and upstart hip hop producer murk daddy flex, a.k.a. Terrance Chiyezhan, opens the show. Meanwhile, DJ Daffy Duck spins between sets.
