Pitchfork Saturday preview: LCD Soundsystem, Panda Bear, Wolf Parade, Titus Andronicus
Saturday and Sunday are blockbuster days for the Pitchfork fest.
Saturday’s headliner is LCD Soundsystem, part of the last tour for James Murphy and his band. Animal Collective’s Panda Bear will be previewing new songs off an upcoming album. And the great Wolf Parade will be playing songs off its recently released album. Any one of those three acts are strong enough to headline. That’s how good the lineup is this year.
Beyond those sets, my top picks for Saturday (in order of appearance) are: Real Estate, Kurt Vile, Titus Andronicus and Bear in Heaven.
