Pitchfork Music Festival returns to Union Park in Chicago for it's twelfth year (except 2005's "Intonation Music Festival" tag) July 14-16. As usual, it's three full days diverse acts, food, shopping and pre-and-post events.

They’re headlining Friday night. It should be part summer night dance party, part catharsis.

Bryan (Koo Koo Kanga Roo) SPB: You see to perform on a lot of varied bills from kids stuff to hip-hop shows and Warped. Do you prefer to mix up the audience you play to or do you prefer a headline-type club show? Bryan: We prefer everything.

Still trying to play weirder venues, so hoping for more variation in the future.
