More Pitchfork acts announced (but still not all of 'em)

Dragging things out to the point of melodramatic absurdity -- hey, fellas, Lollapalooza, All Points West, Coachella, Bonnaroo and some 10 other major national music fests have already announced their ENTIRE lineups; what the heck are you waiting for? -- promoters of the fourth annual Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park on July 18-20 have added a few more names to the list of this year's performers: Spoon, Les Savy Fav and the Dodos.

The other acts announced so far have been reported elsewhere in this blog, and there are still a few to come, chief among them, the third act on Friday's "Don't Look Back" roster, joining Public Enemy (doing "It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back") and Mission of Burma ("vs.").

One thing the promoters have confirmed, alas: The third album retrospective will NOT be the Feelies doing "Crazy Rhythms," although those legendary art-rockers are reuniting this summer and performing in Manhattan's Battery Park with Sonic Youth.

I hadn't even heard the Feelies rumor, but that would have been amazing.

I'm thinking the final addition to "Dont Look Back" is going to be either Sebadoh or Mudhoney. My dream would be classic line-up(Haggerty on guitar) Naked Raygun doing "Throb, Throb".

Lollapalooza and Coachella both drag out their additions as well. Neither of them announce their entire lineups right from the start. Coachella just added Prince a couple of weeks ago, Aphex Twin, Goldfrapp and a bunch more before that, and their initial lineup came out in January (if I'm remembering correctly). Lollapalooza's going to add more acts (including New Pornographers, the Toadies, Iron & Wine, and DeVotchKa if the artist discovery page on the website is to be believed). They're just more subtle about it than Pitchfork is.

the final ATP act is Sebadoh. Straight from the LooB's mouth.
