NC Hops & Roots Festival 

When: Sat., Sept. 3 2011
Price: $15-20

The inaugural run of the all-day-and-all-night Hops and Roots Fest gathers from all ends of the roots spectrum, including the boozy bar rock of Olympic Ass-Kickin Team, the vintage blues boogie of Bill Toms & Hard Rain, the twangy torch songs of the Lizzy Ross Band, the fiesty newgrass-jazz fusion of Galactic Cowboy Orchestra and the new-jazzy pop direction of Greg Humphreys. Cortete's horn-abetted pop sophistication and Craicdown's worldy flair are featured as well. Local breweries pouring include Carolina Brewery, Fullsteam, Foothills and LoneRider. It's not all beers and bands though: Benjamin's Vineyards will also be on-site, along with several food vendors and a farmers market, plus there's free camping. —Spencer Griffith
