Pitchfork Music Festival Fri Dec 21 2012

2013 Pitchfork Music Festival Dates Announced, Tickets On Sale Today at Noon

Pitchfork announced some good news this morning to help everyone beat away the winter blues. They formally announced this morning the dates for the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival, and that a special discounted three-day pass will go on sale at noon today.

The festival will return to Union Park for its eight year on Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21. The festival is offering a limited amount of three-day passes for $95 that go on sale to the public at noon today, December 21. Once sold out, three day passes will be available at the regular price for $120 and single day tickets for $50 each day. Also this year, the festival is offering a special layaway program for the full price three-day pass that allows purchasers to pay for the pass over three payments.

So get your refresh button ready at noon and buy your tickets here. The three day passes usually sell out quickly, especially ones at the limited price. And let's be real, it's the perfect last minute gift for all you procrastinators out there this Holiday season.

The Empty Bottle's Free Mondays: For The Love Of All That Is Rock

By Zach Blumenfeld

"It'll start picking up around doors, which is at 8:30 or 9," the bartender assures me as I solitarily sip on a Revolution Rosa. Of course, she turns out to be right. It's a Free Monday, after all. This is the Bottle's weekly time to shine in the vibrant Chicago live music scene.
