Pitchfork Opening Night Party Could anyone be more excited about Pitchfork Fest than I??? I'm guessing not. If any of ya'll will be in the Chicagoland area the night before the indie-gasm fest, join me at the Opening Night Party Friday July 28 at the METRO. Headlining is Sunset Rubdown the FANTASTIC sideproject of Wolf Parade's Spencer Krug. Also there will be Indie-pop darlings Voxtrot promoting their latest EP, as well as comedian/writer/filmaker Eugene Mirman who has opened for comedy group Stella, The Shins, and Modest Mouse.
It is my sincerest hope that Wolf Parade will be appearing at Pitchfork Fest. With one of their members in town the night before, I'm beginning to wonder if that might actually come to fruition. Two more months to go!
About the Blog. This baby is my personal blog where I'll tell you -- the bored and clearly musically-inclined reader -- upcoming indie concerts in the Chambana and Chicagoland area, as well as anywhere else my favorite bands are playing. Furthermore, I'll post pics of me hanging out with my favorite musicians and anything else pertaining to my awesome life.
