This weekend marks the annual Pitchfork Music Festival, taking place as usual in Union Park in the great city of Chicago. We’re happy to say that we will be at the fest and will be bringing you pictures and higlights next week. But in the meantime, what better way to prepare than to highlight some of the always great artists that will be performing?


Brooklyn band Liars should be a great act to catch. Mostly because their albums span so many different moods and styles that you never know what you’re going to get on stage. Case in point, these two great tracks below.

It’s tough to believe that suburban Seattle indie rockers Modest Mouse have been around since 1993, but in the past few years they’re arguably bigger than ever before and still cranking out album after album of great tunes, giving them the Friday night headlining spot.

Baltimore duo Beach House has been touring almost non-stop since winter, but we’re glad they’ve got enough juice left for some summer festivals. Lead singer Victoria Legrand’s deep and husky voice is even more powerful live in the flesh.
