Pitchfork Music Festival Fri Mar 05 2010

Pitchfork Music Festival adds BSS, Panda Bear, El-P, General Awesomeness

Oh it's on now. The Pitchfork Music Festival has announced even more bands for this year's lineup (in case you thought nine performers was a little on the scarce side). Friday night will not belong exclusively to Issac Brock and his Brockettes - a one-two 2002-tastic punch of Canadian gold-medal Juno-winners Broken Social Scene and king of Def Jux's former empire El-P. On Saturday, The Smith Westerns get to play as the home team while Jersey rockers Titus Andronicus, miseducated MC Freddie Gibbs, totally out-there futuredelic spacers Dâm-Funk and seemingly immortal Jon Spencer Blues Explosion join in the fun. Not to be outdone, Sunday pulls in local lovelies CAVE and Mexican-American Midwestern maestros Allá. Oh, and a band called Girls, who might have gotten a wee bit of critical attention this past year. If any of those sound appetizing, grab 'em if you want 'em: The three-day passes are gone, but you can still buy single-day tickets for each day.
