With a slight change of pace from previous years, the 2009 Pitchfork Music Festival will not start with an evening of nostalgic full-length album performances. Instead, the Friday night lineup will feature four bands, all of them of the indie rock ouvre, playing sets that you, the early ticket buyer, vote on. Friday night, July 17th's performances, we've now learned, will come from a newly reunited Jesus Lizard, Tortoise, Built to Spill and Yo La Tengo. Other bands on board for the fourth annual summer festival which runs July 17-19, include Grizzly Bear, sad-core rockers The National, Pharoahe Monch, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Walkmen and Vivian Girls. Tickets go on sale March 13th.
