Pitchfork Music Festival

It's coming July 18-20 at Chicago's Union Park and promises to be a great weekend of live music. Friday will feature 2 classic CDs performed in their entirety - Mission of Burma's "Vs." and Public Enemy's "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back". Saturday features Vampire Weekend and Dizzee Rascal among others. And Sunday features Dinosaur Jr, Spiritualized, M Ward, and The Apples in Stereo (yeah, they are awful live though). Should be a great time. I plan to be there but should probably buy my tickets before they sell out. Current schedule below:
