    I'm considering going to this if I like the lineup as much or better than Lollapalooza's. If it was last year, I would have definitely gone to Lolla. But I'll be heading to Chicago this summer for a music festival no matter what and I think I'd prefer going to Pitchfork, just because of how small-scale and well-run it is.

    Cause none of your friends have been there either so then you really wouldn't know Kitt? I have family there, so ya know i would have an idea of the weather I guess. And also having been a other parts of the midwest in the summer you figure it out. (It rains in minnesota in june and it rains in wisconsin in august)

    More in the sense of, your friends came back from vacation somewhere and you are having a convo about it. Lets say they had gone to chicago, you ask ''so how was it?'' Usually, one way or the other, the weather comes up regarding the trip.

    or maybe when someone is posting on a message board they don't sit back and concentrate really hard on every possible thing they know from life that might affect the post.

    And if we did, it wouldn't be nearly as fun for you...what without all the insulting you get to do.

    I don't know what's more annyoing in this thread, kitt kat's whining or garrett's defense of her.

    And for those of you who haven't been, the amount of hipsters at this festival, no surprise, is fucking horrifying. Makes Coachella look like Lollapalooza.

    Who cares the music is great and almost all of the people I talked to at the festival were super chill. I'd say most of the people there are ordinary music lovers, your average hipster does NOT do well in sunlight.

    I had a blast last year. Lineup pending, of course, I'll likely go again. I'm sure there will probably be enough to get me out there again.

    The rain was wonderful. It made for good times. And all the people seemed pretty cool there.

    Fun fact, urban dictionary currently lists 118 definitions for hipster. A couple of my faves:

    • "Kind of like an Emo kid who never really grew out of it."
    • "1. A self-aggrandizing piece of hypocrisy.
      2. Consumer.
      3. A sector of the "enlightened" mass culture."
    • "Black frame glasses wearing, java drinking, converse all-star wearing, bike riding, indie listning, underground club going, white belt and 3 shirt sizes too small wearing, non showering, mommy and daddy grubing, record store working, pabst blue ribbon drinking, smoothie sipping, tight black jean wearing, Williamsburg BK living......Poser"
    • And my personal favorite: "someone who flaunts cigarettes."


    That really made for some entertaining reading. Yeah pitchfork is full of these kids although I guess I'm not really one exactly. Especially when it comes to cigarettes and tight fitting pants.

    You're right there's no way...Portishead would fill that park in a heartbeat...

    From everything that I have read, Portishead is relaxing before recording another album, which supposedly they will follow up with a proper tour.

    Though, if this were true and Portishead was doing a one-off then I think its about time my wife got to see Chicago.

    Wow, I would go to that without question.

    Too good to be true? I don't know, seems feasible minus Portishead... who's actually kinda possible too. I don't know who would be the other headliner though. No way the Decemberists would. I bet they give their new album a shit rating too.

    Reunited Jesus Lizard to open Pitchfork festival with set list handpicked by fans

    The reunited Jesus Lizard will play its first hometown show in 11 years July 17 at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park, promoters will announce Friday.

    The noise-rock quartet broke up in 1999, but the original lineup of David Yow, Duane Denison, David Wm. Sims, and Mac McNeilly has announced plans to play a handful of shows this year while their label, Touch & Go, reissues much of their back catalogue.

    The Jesus Lizard will be part of an opening-night festival lineup that also includes Built to Spill, Tortoise and Yo La Tengo.
    Each of the bands will play a set handpicked by fans. Anyone who buys a ticket starting March 13 will receive an email providing a link to a web page where they can vote on which songs they’d like to hear each band perform. Voting will end June 12.

    Other bands and artists confirmed for the festival include the National, Pharoahe Monch and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart on July 18 and Grizzly Bear, the Walkmen and Vivian Girls on July 19.

    Additional bands for the fourth annual festival will be announced later.

    if Boredoms play I might go... I might buy tickets regardless of whether I think I can go simply because they are so cheap.
