PITCHFORK MUSIC FESTIVAL ADDS BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE, PANDA BEAR
EL-P, THE JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION, GIRLS, AND MORE TO 2010 FESTIVAL
The 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival is set to go down at Chicago's Union Park on July 16–18. The second batch of bands slated to perform have been announced. This year's festival welcomes the return of Canadian super-collective Broken Social Scene, who will be fresh off the release of their newest full-length due out in April, Forgiveness Rock Record. They will be joining Modest Mouse on Friday's bill, along with indie hip hop pioneer El-P. Saturday welcomes the sun-drenched sounds of Animal Collective member Panda Bear, the always raucous Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Brooklyn art-rockers Bear in Heaven, noisy New Jersey collective Titus Andronicus, Gary, Indiana's emcee Freddie Gibbs, space-funk torch-bearer Dam-Funk, and Chicago glam-rockers The Smith Westerns, while Sunday will sport the talents of San Francisco heart-breakers Girls and local psych outfits Cave and Allá. More bands will be added as the festival date approaches
