More music fest action

Man, this summer’s music schedule is exhausting. I’ve personally never been a fan of summertime music fests after overheating at Lollapalooza 11 years ago (1995 was a bad year to be outdoors), but I will be at the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend for DEPART-ment.

For those not in the know, DEPART-ment will have a tent on the tennis courts providing some respite from the heat and a chance to shop. Come check out handmade goodies from people all over Chicago and beyond. I’ll be volunteering there on Sunday night (just in time to check out Spoon for free!!), so swing by and say hi.

    And then there’s this festival just across the border in WI, featuring The Flaming Lips, Primus and Rusted Root:

    A few good ones on that list, but why would they schedule those dates? Lauren, we’ll see you at the Fork!

    Rusted Root? Better not let any of your College Republican friends see you at the show Shep. ;)

    @erinoia – yay! My sister and I will be working the floor, either in accessories or plushies I believe, from 6 – 10.
