Pitchfork Festival announces schedule

By Andrew Hertzberg

It's only a couple weeks away until Pitchfork Music Festival takes over Union Park for a weekend. The schedule has finally been announced (with color coordinated stages), and there are certainly some tough choices. Considering Tune-Yards and Battles have dropped two of the best albums this year, I'm not too happy about that one. And I'll have to decide if I care more about indie cred by catching Guided by Voices or the bzzzzzzing Das Racist. Oy, first world issues. Anyway, check it for yourself below. What are your greatest conflicts?

  1. Catch Guided by Voices vs. Das Racist for sure. GBV always put on a party, ahem, show. I would not have travelled all the way from Boston to Nashville to see them live if this were not the case. Trust me on this.
