Out of Town

A convergence of family obligations, absence of meterological foresight, and an apparent desire to haphazardly attend every music festival at least once finds me heading into Chicago this afternoon for Pitchfork's music festival in Union Park headlined by Feist, Grimes, and Vampire Weekend (never forget). Luckily for those less interested in sweltering in the near-tropical midwestern summer heat (and/or dodging predicted weekend thunderstorms), the festival is streaming the whole thing online for your climate controlled viewing pleasure at Pitchfork.tv.
Despite the Seattle-(but-not-Washington)-free lineup, I'm thoroughly excited to see the collection of bands that the tastemaking/breaking website has put together, I wouldn't blame anyone for perusing the well-stocked lineup remotely. Regardless of whether you'll be watching from home or the park, the set-times are re-posted after the jump to help you plan accordingly.
Let me know if there's anything that I'd be a fool to miss; if I make it out alive, expect photos and a recap on Monday.
