This will probably be one of the few times in my life that I'll ever use "excited" and "Pitchfork" in the same blog post. What can I say? Those pretentious fucks know how to put on a good music festival. And yes, I'm very excited about the weekend because Megan and Kelly will be in town and we'll see lots of good music, drink a lot of beer, and hopefully dance a lot.
Today is my three-hour Friday, so I don't have much time to sit down and compose an extremely well-written and eloquent post (which, you know, I do every other morning) (right?), so here's a list of the bands I'm most excited about this weekend. And if you're going to Pitchfork and really good at stalking / spotting me in a crowd of a few thousand people, come say hi!
9:00. SONIC YOUTH. (I caved. Daydream Nation is very good.)
3:00. GRIZZLY BEAR.
5:00. IRON & WINE.
7:15. DAN DEACON.
8:00. CAT POWER.
9:00. YOKO ONO.*
5:00. JAMIE LIDELL.
7:00. OF MONTREAL.
8:00. THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS (Sadly, Neko will not be there. Shame!)
I'll be at the Empty Bottle and Debonair Social Club on Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. Fingers crossed that I don't get too drunk and take a picture of someone biting my boob!
*LIES. I'm totes skipping Yoko. (Sorry, John.)
