    Cat Power, Girl Talk, Grizzly Bear, Battles, Stephen Malkmus, Of Montreal, Menomena, The Sea and Cake and Deerhunter. This is so worth it, I think I'm going to Chicago.

    Edit: And of course, Sonic Youth.

    Does this thing typically sell out or would it be possible to consider it for another few weeks before coming to a firm decision?

    I'm going to see Deerhunter on Saturday here in Atlanta, they are so amazing live. As is Of Montreal. I can't imagine all those bands together, it's going to be orgasmic.

    I sent John Darnielle an email the other day practically begging him to come back to Pitchfork this year.

    His response?
    No Pitchfork festival for me this year man! See you around sometime

    jd

    Oh well!

    So, what other bands would you guys like to see at this fest? Air, Andrew Bird, The Arcade Fire (although AF would probably make it sell out quicker) or Wilco would be awesome. I coulda sworn Peter, Bjorn and John were going to be there, but I would like to see them as well. And, although I don't know why, I've never seen Godspeed You! Black Emperor touring.. that would be an awesome show.

    AF wouldn't do this show, I don't think. Maybe three years ago, but not now. They skipped Winnipeg on their current tour despite our date selling out in a couple hours last time, when they had half the popularity they have now.

    Besides, Neon Bible is shit.

    Lightning Bolt would be really fucking awesome, though.

    Yeah, I know for a fact they probably wouldn't.... but it would be awesome. I still listen to The Funeral almost on a daily basis.

    The new Panda Bear album is amazing, so I wouldn't be surprised seeing Panda Bear or Animal Collective show up. I would, however, be in awe.

    I'd be surprised if Animal Collective performs (they are going to be in London on the 11th of July). Same goes for Panda Bear, obviously.

    BUT Junior Boys are rumored to play which is all kinds of exciting- So This Is Goodbye is fucking fantastic.

    I would be going to this, if I didn't have to save money to live in NYC.

    But seriously, I jizz all over the place every time I see that line up.

    My God.

    Then again, the average listener is kinda screwed, you need what, 6 months to "get" Spiderland.

    Cadence Weapon just announced that he'll be at the festival and the tour dates section of his website confirms this. Junior Boys are rumored to play (they apparently made an announcement at a concert a couple of weeks ago). So fucking rad.

    Yes! This probably indicates that they have at least one more batch of bands to announce, too.
    If my heart ends up broken, I'm blaming you.

    Only 33 bands have been announced, and they promised 40+

    We're probably going to get couple of announcements that announce a handful of bands each.

    Listening to a live bootleg of Slint playing, the only issues was the fact that the vocals were down in the shoddy recording. And that's just a shoddy recording. They have energy, and they're like a swiss watch.

    Apart from that, it's mother fucking slint, mother fucking live, mother fucking spiderland.

    I can never remember Andrew Bird's name. I've never heard his music, but at least a dozen of my tangential Wikipedia sprees in the past few weeks have led to his article.

    I guess I should give him a listen.

    Festival looks really good.
