Our friends at Consequence of Sound really have this “breaking stories about who’s headlining festivals” thing down as they continue to provide the scoop on 2010 festival headliners. Today, the CoS team revealed that Pavement will headline this year’s Pitchfork Music and Arts Festival in Chicago.
The 2010 Pitchfork Festival takes place in Chicago in mid-July.
Let’s take a quick look at six other stories of interest…

Finally, most official live recordings that get sold on the web come from two-track recordings which gives the engineers little room to tweak the recordings. Widespread Panic has bucked that trend with the release of the first “Instant Classic” multi-track recording featuring the band’s New Year’s Eve show from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. It’s unbelievable how good these MP3 sound and how quickly WSP archivist Horace Moore and sound engineer Chris Rabold got them ready for distribution.
