i just got an email regarding the upcoming pitchfork music festival. i, along with countless others have received an “exclusive” podcast that gives some “insider information” on acts at this years festival. new aspects of this years fest, include the addition of a third day, the festival now starts on friday night. the first acts announced this year are girl talk, cat power, clipse, grizzly bear, professor murder, jamie lidell, of montreal, and iron and wine. click here to listen to the podcast. well, you can call me excited. the initial lineup has eclipsed my expectations by a long ways. this years festival should be pretty darn cool. who’s coming with me? and remember tickets go on sale, this coming monday.

and finally, on the first night of the festival, a few bands will be performing some of their classic albums live and in their entirety. i heard that sonic youth is playing all of “day dream nation” at a festival in spain, so maybe we will be so lucky.

  1. sounds pretty awesome! i saw cat power a couple months ago and grizzly bear last sunday, both shows were great, so it’s starting to look pretty exciting. sonic youth is also playing daydream two nights in london….if they announce any dates in the us, i’m there!
