how is this different than a weekend in brooklyn?

"how is this different than a weekend in brooklyn?"

It's different because it's not happening in brooklyn.

It is different from a weekend in Brooklyn because I didn't have to go home to my bedbug infested apartment.

This is different from a weekend in Brooklyn because girls are friendlier in Chicago than in Brooklyn...I'm not kidding...at all.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2011 2:22 AM

Agreed 222 about the friendliness of the locals. If I wasn't invested in my job and had family in NY, I would be living in Chicago in a heartbeat.

i live in brooklyn and am not from the midwest but everyone needs to stop hating on this. a lot of bands don't tour to many of the places that the people who go to p4k fan live often. let them have their fun.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2011 9:37 AM

Hah, dorks who can't get girls in Brooklyn want to move to Chicago. That's just about right...

Let's just find a way to hate everything

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2011 11:03 AM

I've lived in both places (Williamsburg and Chicago). Honestly, it's a personal preference. I loved living in Brooklyn--people were generally friendly, and you are surrounded by great music and other forms of art. But is it better than Chicago? I think not. Midwesterners are not all pasty, fat people in puffer jackets. Did I mention I also that there are a lot of people who flew in from NYC for Pitchfork this weekend? Because, alas, this is not an ordinary weekend in Brooklyn, and they are smart enough to know it.

There is not one attractive person in that crowd. Chicago peeps are all ugly Polish assholes.

I kinda like the warpaint look. It's fun. Ever hear of it?

Saw Neko Case up close on day 2. She looked like a lunch lady. And she was not eager to talk to me, either, even for ten minutes. Looking forward to today, tho.

Chicago is cool if you're into fat chick. Fuck that land locked fly over scene.

does neko case still smell?

Not our rival!

Girls here are okay looking but there are fewer stunners. I feel in NYC I can find a Zooey D lookalike on every corner. Here you have to really search. Just my two cents.

Posted by Mitchfork | July 17, 2011 2:02 PM

Neko is definitely dying her hair at this point....the red head fetish has passed for me.

the face paint is a tune-yards thing, i think - everyone wore it at pier 54, too. kids are totally fanatical about her!

How's the hummus in Chicago?

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2011 3:36 PM

The hummus joke is not big in Chicago yet. It is hurting my feelings that I have been posting here for the last two days from the festival and no one follows my new twitter.

"As a laywer, I find it very interesting when bands thank their sound and merch people but don't mention the people doing legal work behind the scenes."

I am an indie-loving lawyer in Chicago and am live-tweeting Pitchfork today from the festival. Follow me at Mitchfork. I am trying to give some unique insights on the festival.

Chicago smells like geriatric Albini balls. Irtrlevant since '96

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2011 1:26 AM

The average chick is better looking in Chicago than New York I think. More high end talent in NYC because of modeling, but if you ever really casually do the percentages in your head while you're on the street, it really is staggering how many ugly women there are in NY.

10 minutes talking to you would seem like forever to a normal person. leave Neko alone you creep mitchfork.

So this the Chicago vs. New York article?

We've had NY/BK/WB/whateverthefuckyouwanttocallit vs. Philly, then Boston, now this.

Guys, there's a way we settle how which city trumps the others. It's called professional sports!

Posted by Anonymous | July 18, 2011 10:04 AM

it's an awful lot of music for $110.

Posted by j e | July 19, 2011 1:53 PM

Some photos contain a certain inspirational amount, that transmit emotions felt in the concert. However, facial expressions are a priceless treasure, given that reflect the inner thoughts honestly.

At Neko Case I like the fact that she is a singer and a songwriter too and for the fact that she was a member of the Canadian indie rock group. She is gorgeous. As I heard " showcase of women in music".
