Pitchfork Is This Weekend. Are You Going?

Ok, I have a confession.  I quit going to Pitchfork two years ago when the price went to $40 a day.  It’s always blisteringly hot that weekend, and I just think that $120 dollars is too much to pay for a weekend of music.  But I am old and curmudgeonly.  So the fact that it will be 95 degrees with 75% humidity in Chicago all day on Saturday and Sunday shouldn’t keep you from going to Pitchfork.  You are young, beautiful, and well-hydrated, right?  Your feet don’t hurt after twenty minutes of standing in one place.  Or at the very least, you are still cool enough that you can pretend that your feet don’t hurt.  That means you should definitely go see EMA, Neko Case, tUnE-yArDs, and Superchunk.  And then send me the pictures.  Because I’m going to stay in my apartment, pet my dog, eat popsicles, and watch rock documentaries on bio.

  1. I hope anyone who was at Pitchfork also made sure to see Kylesa there, with Laura Pleasants on lead guitar.
