Donald Trump is still president. America's immigration policies have become the shame of the planet. Climate change is turning our oceans into globe-spanning acid baths. We've got to suffer through several more months of ads from two billionaires running for Illinois governor. The future of the U.S. Supreme Court almost hurts too much to think about.

If you'd like to stop thinking about the impending apocalypse for a few minutes, though, may we suggest our annual Pitchfork Music Festival cover-illustration contest?

Take a look at the Jason Wyatt Frederick illustration on the cover of next week's Reader, our annual Pitchfork preview. It's a little like Where's Waldo?, except you're trying to find dozens of people (and in some cases places) without knowing in advance who or what any of them are. With a little patience and an eye for visual puns, you'll find a bunch of Chicago fixtures (well-known and obscure) and lots of Pitchfork artists—but be warned, plenty of the weird shit Jason drew is just there to distract you from the answers.

Here's the contest part: Name as many people, things, and musical acts from the cover as you can and e-mail your list (with your full name) to pitchfork@chicagoreader.com. The person who correctly identifies the most will win a pair of three-day general-admission passes to this weekend's Pitchfork Music Festival. To get a better view, click the image above for a bigger version. (If you're on a mobile device, click this link to zoom in.)

Deadline is noon on Thursday, July 19. Those two passes are worth $350, so why not give it a shot?
