I feel that it is my duty as a Chicagoan to pay some attention to the Pitchfork Music Festival. Saving my jaded, snide remarks for the actual band previews, I’ll say that I’ve been to Pitchfork (previously Intonation) Music Festival several times, and it was a lot of fun. It’s easy enough to make jokes about neon sunglasses and the vast abundance of Sparks (now w/o caffeine, bring yr own cocaine), but by and large it’s one of the better festivals you’ll find, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing. Alas, I won’t be able to attend this year, as I’ve opted to attend a suburban pig roast, as well as Sunday’s White Sox/Orioles game instead, but figured I’d try to help out all those making the trip to Union Park this weekend by providing an overview of all the acts performing.* Enjoy!
