Pygmaliapalooza! or “Midwest Is The Best”

Date September 3, 2006

Last week the schedule was released for the indiest of all midwestern fests, Pygmalion Music Festival (which I will continue to call Pygmaliapalooza until someone legally tells me to stop). This festival has got two Elephant6 bands signed on (Of Montreal/Elf Power) as well as Danielson, Man Man, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, David Bazan, and the 10th anniversary show of Polyvinal Records. Best Part? Pygmalion is also going down just a couple towns over from my living quarters. I guess that only applies to me but, oh well. Anyone else rocking in the midwest and is planning on going to this?

    Oh! Of course! The one weekend I can go to something close and I am going to a wedding in Chicago. Damn the luck.

    I think we’ll definitely hit the Danielson/Bazan show Friday night. Too old to do all the late shows. Sad, really. We’ll have to live vicariously thru you.

    This is definately one of the upsides of living in Champaign-Urbana. I’m hitting at least Murder By Death, Bazan, and City on Film, as well as hopefully the Beauty Shop show. That one might be 21+, though.
