I'm in Chicago, ready for my first Pitchfork Music festival experience. I haven't had a lot of time to familiarize myself with all the bands since I've been on the road all summer, so I'll be watching a lot of them without knowing what to expect. Which is cool. The clean slate phenomenon.
I've heard they'll be giving out free ice cream. I am totally down with that!
The Mae Shi
