pitchsat@andlaurasays One day down, two more to go. With a hearty night of music under our belts and the knowledge that the Green line has TWO Ashland stops, Andy and I will once again head down to Union Park for the all-day festivities. Here’s a little preview for the day to come:

5. Fucked Up (2:30 Stage A) – Hardcore Punk doesn’t necessarily scream Pitchfork material, yet these Toronto natives are definitely going to be a highlight of the festival. Lyrics packed with Nazi references and stage names such as 10,000 Marbles, Concentration Camp, and Guinea Beat, you will never see hipsters mosh so hard in your life. Scarves will fly.

4. Bowerbirds (3:35 Stage B) – Complex and layered, duo Phil Moore and Beth Tacular make beautiful indie music together in their band Bowerbirds. Their latest album, Upper Air, was only released a few weeks ago yet is turning out to be one of my favorite albums of 2009.

3. Yeasayer (5:15 Stage C) – I’ve only heard excellent things about this band. With a mystical and extremely infatuating sound, this band has been on the lips of everyone I know who is going to P4K.

2. DOOM (6:15 Stage A) – Like in past years, Pitchfork always puts one Hip Hop artist on the bill and basically that artist plays for the whitest audience he will play for in their life. It’s quite hilarious
to behold. Last year it was Ghostface Killah. This year it’s DOOM. With a flow that makes even the most stoic of hipsters bounce in their Chucks, I’m very excited to see him on the main stage today.

1. Beirut (Saturday 7:25 Stage C) – Beirut is like romping through Eastern Europe with a band of gypsies and an endless supply of red wine in tow. Brainchild of the ever-adorable New Mexico native Zach Condon, the band has released two spectacular albums since 2006, packed with sweeping melodies and grandiose vocals. Drunken debauchery never felt so good.

Rock on, P4Kers.
