Where's the kids stage?
Logan Square, Chicago. . . is the home of Pitchfork headquarters. If you live in Chicago, you might know that Logan Square is bursting with hipsters. And hipsters have kids too! Grown-up hipsters, otherwise known as "Grubsters" want their kids to have access to quality indie rock kids music. Even the Shins were on Yo Gabba Gabba! And Andrew Bird was Dr. Stringz on Jack's Big Music Show. So Pitchfork, where's the kids' stage????
Oh well. . maybe next year?? Here's their grown-up line-up. Maybe Yo La Tengo will do "Speedy Motorcycle".
