It’s been a little over a week since Octfest descended on Governors Island, but we’re still feeling funky. Despite a truly rainy forecast, the grounds stayed firm and not too muddy during the international beer and music festival presented by Pitchfork and October. Over two days, several thousand guests enjoyed world class music all while […]
How was everyone’s Labor Day? Did you burn your white pants yesterday morning, or are you going to be a rebel and continue wearing the damn things through the holiday season? Who decided that was a rule anyway? Even though Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, I still see plenty of good times […]
For the second year, Pitchfork and October will bring their international celebration of beer, food and music to The Big Apple. The 2017 inaugural event inhabited Brooklyn Hanger (Industry City), but this year the festival is heading outdoors for two full days of indulgence at its finest.

SPONSORED POST It’s our favorite time of the year! Northside Festival has just announced its first wave of 2017 artists and speakers— it’s safe to say they have outdone themselves yet again. Northside Music, which runs from June 8-11, will feature headlining shows from Dirty Projectors, Miguel, Thursday, and Kamasi Washington.

So, the first scientific criterion for identifying a hipster band is that Pitchfork likes them. Pitchfork reviewers like a lot of mainstream music, however, […]
It’s a blog eat blog world. That said, one of the dominating music blogs on the internet is no doubt, Pitchfork. But if you’re anything into indie music, you probably reaped over the discontinuation of Altered Zones. Altered Zones branched off of Pitchfork, featuring the most underground music. Basically, the ones that weren’t big enough […]
Last year, Pitchfork joined in CMJ festivities by throwing their own free one-day music showcase in the form of the #Offline festival. And while Kanye may not make a surprise appearance in their 2011 parties, the online music magazine will at least entertain two boroughs with some amazing bands. So if you can’t wait till the […]
Before today there were 11 albums that received at 10.0 rating on Pitchfork. Now, add Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
