My Pitchfork itinerary: Luca Cimarusti 

The Reader contributor is pumped for Dirty Beaches and the Men

Don't miss our critics' reviews of all the bands playing Sunday.

1 PM: Sunday's most exciting sets take place pretty early in the day. If I can roll out of bed on time, I'll be sure to catch Dirty Beaches.

2:30 PM: Danish punk band Iceage will get my day rolling with some weirdness.

2:45 PM: I bet Thee Oh Sees, aka the best live band in the country, will be the day's highlight.

3:15 PM: Ty Segall, an excellent spaz of a showman, is always worth checking out.

3:45 PM: Genre-hopping posthardcore dudes the Men are sure to bring plenty of volume (and throw some curves).

5:45 PM:Don't miss Oneohtrix Point Never's beautiful, dreamy synth compositions.

6:30 PM: You can hear Beach House and Vampire Weekend anytime you turn on modern-rock radio or step into a Gap.

My suggestion for the rest of the evening is to beat traffic, maybe take a power nap, then head to the Empty Bottle for Thee Oh Sees' aftershow. San Fran weirdos the Mallard and Detroit's Terrible Twos are among the openers.

Next: Ratso the puppet on Milk Music and Vampire Weekend
