Everyone’s favorite hip-hop mega-fest, Rock the Bells, officially announced its ’09 line-up at a fancy Hollywood party last night. Among the many names on the prestigious list: D.C.’s own Tabi Bonney. (He’s down there in the lower right-hand corner of the huge bill. See him?)

Dates and venues are still TBA, but safe money’s on a Merriweather Post Pavillion show, sometime in July. Hopefully the organizers will give Tabi ample stage time, especially during the D.C. show. During the local stop on last year’s tour, the crowd went nuts when Wale jumped on stage, but his set was cut short. Don’t make the same mistake again, Guerilla Union.
