Weirdly, no Seattle acts—out of the 47 booked—will be playing at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival, happening July 13-15 at Chicago's Union Park... although ex-Seattleite and Stranger Genius award recipient Lars Finberg will be playing with Thee Oh Sees on July 15. If you're a Seattle musician and feel slighted by this turn of events, vent in the comments section. If you don't give a fuck, feel good about yourself.
By the way, renowned Canadian electronic musician Tim Hecker, who's performing July 13, will be recording his next album in Seattle this summer with Master Musicians of Bukkake member Randall Dunn (who's also produced Sunn O))), Earth, Secret Chiefs 3, Cave Singers, and many others). This summit meeting of great sonic minds likely will yield something extraordinary.
