Panda Bear to play Pitchfork?
One of the no-brainers for a P4K shindig is something involving Animal Collective. It’s like how you can’t have a true jam bill without some gray ponytail from the Dead.
Indeed, through industry sources, we’ve learned that Panda Bear, the one with the better voice in Animal Collective, will show up at Union Park this July to stoke brahs with tracks from his upcoming drooladelica opus Tomboy.
I have to admit that’s great news. Expectations for Pitchfork build a bit more each year. Panda Bear’s follow to Person Pitch is one of the more eagerly anticipated releases this year.
The other piece of news, according to DiCrescenzo, is that Jon Spencer Blues Explosion will play the fest in July. And, yes Brent, I’m that geek saying Pussy Galore would be much cooler.
