The Summer Of Music

This summer promises to be one of the best summer's for music in Chicago ever. Hell, I'd wager that, in the words of Sam Barnett, "Chicago truly is the center of the universe this summer. Viva la revolucion!" Along with a host of great individual shows at all summer long, we'll also be visited by three music festivals that I'll be going to. Here's the run down:

Pitchfork Music Festival: July 29-20. One day: $20, Both days: $30. My Must Sees: Spoon, Mission of Burma, Aesop Rock

Intonation Music Fest: June 24 & 25, Union Park. $20/day or $35 for both. My Must Sees: Block Party, Chromeo

Lollapalooza: August 4-6, Grant Park. $140 for all 3 days. My Must Sees: Too Many. Really, the $140 ticket price makes my gag reflex fire, but the lineup is, quite frankly, fucking amazing.

Also of note, New City's Guide and the Guerilla Guide, with info on just about every festival, music or otherwise, coming through Chitown

Got a ticket for Pitchfork's Sunday. Unfortunately can't make Saturday- all my days off have been claimed.

Note that Glen Kotche and Nels Cline (both members of Wilco) will be appearing on Sunday (on the 2nd stage). I hereby speculate that one of the yet-to-be-mentioned main stage acts for that day will be Wilco.

No joke! That Lolla price is a bit of a racket, but holy christ! Your head will be swimming for days with joy.

We briefly entertained the idea of coming back to check out Intonation (Jes is also attending), but are heading to NYC instead. =P Hope you'll deliver a full report for us.
