My roommate is flying to Chicago this weekend to go see the Pitchfork fest.
Among the bands he’ll be seeing: Destroyer, Ted Leo and the Silver Jews — in a row — and that’s just the first day. Suffice to say I wish I was going, but since I can’t, here are some tunes to either preview the show (if you’re among the lucky bastards going) or experience it by proxy.
Man, just posting these tracks depresses the hell out of me.
Anyway, Cokemachineglow is going to be there in force – keep an eye out for the dudes in the swanky, VanGaalen-designed CMG t-shirts.
The Grandaddy Contest ends today. Send in yr haikus by tonight, I’ll be cleaning through my e-mail and picking the winners tomorrow morning. Buttons and posters!
