More 'Fork

Posted By on 03.05.10 at 11:47 AM

Well damn, it looks like I owe Jessica Hopper a dollar. Back when she and I made our predictions about who would end up playing the Pitchfork Music Festival this year, I brushed off her suggestion that rapper Freddie Gibbs would wind up on the lineup—I figured it was unlikely because he's still relatively underground, without the type of popularity in indie circles that past P4K hip-hop acts like the GZA and Clipse had.

Seems I was wrong, though. The new batch of festival acts announced today does include Gibbs, along with Girls, El-P, Broken Social Scene, Panda Bear, Dam-Funk, Bear in Heaven, Titus Andronicus (whose new The Monitor is worthy of comparison with the Constantines), the slightly surprising Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and locals Alla, Cave, and the Smith Westerns.

Three-day passes for the fest are sold out, but tickets for all three individual days are still available.
