More Stuff I Won't Be Seein'

Taking the kids to the brother's house in Penna tomorrow. Just in time to miss two ridiculously good festival lineups in Chicago.

First, tomorrow and Sunday is Pitchfork's Intonation music festival at Union Park on the near west side. This one features (among many others): Head Of Femur, AC Newman, Broken Social Scene, Prefuse 73, Death From Above 1979, Tortoise, Will Oldham, Xiu Xiu, Andrew Bird, Deerhoof, The Wrens, Les Savy Fav & The Decemberists.

A week later in Grant Park comes Lollapalooza. A one-shot, two-day deal (unlike the traveling circus of earlier vintage), this one features (again, among many others): The Arcade Fire, Spoon, The Pixies, Weezer, Blonde Redhead, Drive-By Truckers, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Walkmen, Kasabian, M83, Death Cab For Cutie & The Killers.

Hopefully it will suck hard and I won't have missed anything.
