Pitchfork vs. Intonation

Anybody else notice that Pitchfork hasn't even acknowledged that the Intonation Festival exists this year? Obviously there's still some bad blood there...but you'd think they'd at least would have given them a quick blurb about the headliners being announced just to be diplomatic. Or perhaps in classic Pitchfork form, mention snarkily that "the other festival at Union Park" has booked Bloc Party and The Streets. It seems kind of lame just to ignore the elephant in the room, so I'm going to have to give the 'Fork a big Stephen Colbert-style "wag of my finger" on this. Stay here on RFC and we'll keep you updated on all of the latest Intonation and Pitchfork Fest news. Speaking of which, here's the latest line-up for Intonation: 6/24 The Streets, The Stills, Lady Sovereign, Boredoms, Jose Gonzalez, Chromeo 6/25 Bloc Party, Jon Brion and the latest for Pitchfork: 7/29-30 Spoon, Yo La Tengo, Silver Jews, Tapes 'n Tapes, Mission of Burma, Ted Leo/Pharmacists, Mountain Goats, The National, Jens Lekman, Hot Machines, Man Man, Aesop Rock

I agree about Pitchfork's no comment. I was sure they would write something and will bet that just about every employee with be rockin' out at Intonation too.

Now that's funny! And I totally noticed and totally agree. I'll definitely be at Intonation if only for the Streets, still holding off on Pitchfork to see what the rest of the lineup has to offer. Also, late June will probably hold better weather.
