I'm waking up before dawn tomorrow to depart for Chicago, where Pitchfork will host its annual music festival at Union Park from Friday through Sunday. Headliners include Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes and TV on the Radio, and I count hip-hop acts Das Racist and Odd Future and reunited 90s rockers Guided by Voices and The Dismemberment Plan among my most anticipated performances. (How I'm going to see GBV and Das Racist when they're scheduled against each other is a pertinent question.)
