Flaming Lips to Close Pitchfork Music Festival
The Flaming Lips are the latest headliners to join the Pitchfork Music Festival. They'll be closing the festival on Sunday night, and like the festival's Friday night performers, their set list will be selected by the audiencewhich means fans won't have to hear very much from the group's last album. Here's betting the show is at least 70% made up of material from The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
UPDATE: Well so much for that. The Pitchfork Music Festival sent out a second press release correcting the first, stating that The Flaming Lips will write their own set list. You've got to wonder whether this was a (huge) error in the original press release or a change of heart.
The line-up for the festival so far:
Friday, July 17 - "Write the Night: Set Lists by Request"
Built to Spill
The Jesus Lizard
Yo La Tengo
Saturday, July 18
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Sunday, July 19
