Tickets for Chicago’s best summer music festival go on sale today at noon CST at pitchforkmusicfestival.com. Three-day passes go for $90; single-day tickets for $40. Artists announced to perform so far include Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem and St. Vincent, but the most exciting is Sunday night’s headliner….PAVEMENT!
I saw Pavement twice during its first run as a band; one show was a disappointment, the other one of the most memorable concerts I’ve seen in my life. I’m pretty much a huge Pavement nerd, so I’m really jazzed about this whole ordeal. Plenty of other nerds I know are as well.
Finally, something to look forward to as we rot away in this endless, soul-sucking winter.
