Pitchfork Music Festival 2011
Are you ready for another festival? I hope the beers and delicious foods of all the street festivals and Dave Matthews Caravan have treated you well thus far, but we are just getting started this summer. Pitchfork Media is hosting their 5th annual festival this weekend at Union Park. The self-titled festival spans various genres including hip-hop, folk, electronica, alternative rock, and indie pop-rock. Also mixed in are some experimental indie groups who you wouldn't really know how to categorize, nonetheless all the artists at the festival are fun and exciting. Often times they are a breath of fresh air from the normal mainstream sounds we hear on the radio and at the bars day in and day out. This year is no exception and there are some returning artists as well as many new artists that are creating a buzz amongst the hipster haven that so loyally support the "non-traditional."
