I'm headed to Chicago this weekend for the Pitchfork Music Festival, the annual gathering in which the internet's most respected and reviled tastemaker steps into real life for three days of up-and-coming buzz bands. Despite their reputation as indifferent live performers, I'm especially psyched to see the reunited Pavement, one of my foremost musical influences. Also hyped up about Liars, LCD Soundsystem, Real Estate and loads more.
I'll be tweeting and blogging all weekend, so be sure to follow @chrisdeville for my updates, and check back here for daily reports.
In the meantime, RCRD LBL prepared a playlist featuring lots of the acts I'll be seeing this weekend, so listen for a preview, then hit up the festival webcast to see for yourself.
