Playlist and Podcast for July 16, 2009

It's a big week for Chicago festivals, one of the two major summer indie rock festivals based out of Chicagoland is happening this weekend—Pitchfork Music Festival. We're not affiliated with it at all, but we did want to give you a taste/preview/whatever of the festival (and be sure to check out our Pitchfork Picks at the bottom of this week's blog post), as well as give you some other ideas for stuff going on in town this week. You can download your copy of the podcast here, or listen in on our online player. Either way, enjoy the show!
<3, Susan.
