More Pitchfork acts announced (but still not all of ‘em)

SHARE More Pitchfork acts announced (but still not all of ‘em)

Dragging things out to the point of melodramatic absurdity — hey, fellas, Lollapalooza, All Points West, Coachella, Bonnaroo and some 10 other major national music fests have already announced their ENTIRE lineups; what the heck are you waiting for? — promoters of the fourth annual Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park on July 18-20 have added a few more names to the list of this year’s performers: Spoon, Les Savy Fav and the Dodos.

The other acts announced so far have been reported elsewhere in this blog, and there are still a few to come, chief among them, the third act on Friday’s “Don’t Look Back” roster, joining Public Enemy (doing “It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back”) and Mission of Burma (“vs.”).

One thing the promoters have confirmed, alas: The third album retrospective will NOT be the Feelies doing “Crazy Rhythms,” although those legendary art-rockers are reuniting this summer and performing in Manhattan’s Battery Park with Sonic Youth.
