Pitchfork Fest begins today (7/13), which means so does Sailor Jerry's annual and free Cobrafest. A couple more artists have been announced since we last spoke (that's the updated flyer above). RSVP is still open.
More King Tuff & Natural Child tour dates HERE.
Another Saturday night Pitchfork Fest afterparty happens at Bottom Lounge with a DJ set from Danny Brown (and others).
Not going to the fest today? Stream it online.
Like they did last year, Sailor Jerry will return to Cobra Lounge (235 N Ashland) for three nights of Pitchfork Fest afterparties, and if you can't tell from the killer (free!) lineups listed in the flyer above (...White Mystery, Human Eye, King Tuff, Natural Child, Psychic Paramount, Coathangers, Heavy Cream...), each night is going to rock very hard. We predict packed houses of Sailor Jerry intoxicated fans, great music and trouble getting to Union Park on the following days in time for the Pitchfork Fest opening bands go on.
Oh, and more bands are still TBA! July 13-15, 9 p.m., FREE with RSVP, 21+
As seen on BrooklynVegan, The Bronx's alter ego, Mariachi El Bronx, and Two Gallants will be touring together this spring. The poster above lets you know that the two groups will be playing a FREE Chicago show at the Double Door on May 20 (courtesy of Sailor Jerry). RSVP HERE for entry (21+).
Aside from their dates with Two Gallants, The Bronx have a large spring/summer tour schedule of their own, including shows with Refused (who are coming here too) and Rise Against.

The A.V. Club Chicago chimed in regarding the event:
In addition to free Sailor Jerry cocktails, the company will give away 101 complimentary tattoos based on original artwork by the tattoo legend, because nothing can go wrong when you mix tattoos and alcohol.Visit the shop at any time tomorrow for a free drink and a chance at being one of the 101-people to get inked/receive art.
