Pitchfork vs. Intonation, part 2
While I’d still have to give the Intonation the award for “most diverse bill,” it looks like the Pitchfork Music Festival already wins the prize for “most ambitious.” In addition to the main event this weekend, the Fork crew has lined up a full week of events, including a free lunch concert everyday downtown at the Cultural Center. Highlights include Walter Meego on Tuesday, The Office on Thursday and a Curtis Mayfield tribute on Friday. Then, every night this week the Siskel Center will be screening more music mayhem, starting yesterday with the Icelandic rock doc Screaming Masterpiece and ending the week with the film version of Ziggy Stardust.
