And it's an impressive one.
Instead of the "Don't Look Back" classic-album reviews on opening night for the last few years, this time, fans will have a chance to write the bands' set lists as part of a new series dubbed "Write the Night: Set Lists By Request." Concertgoers who purchase a ticket will get a confirmation email linking to a Web page where they can vote on which of each band's songs they'd like to hear. Voting begins when tickets go on sale on March 13 and ends on June 12.
The acts announced so far for Friday, July 17, are guitar-rockers Built to Spill, reunited Chicago noise-rock legends the Jesus Lizard playing their first show here in 11 years, venerable indie-rock heroes Yo La Tengo and hometown post-rockers Tortoise.
Acts announced for Saturday, July 18, include the National, Pharoahe Monch and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. And the performers unveiled for Sunday, July 19, are Grizzly Bear, the Walkmen and the Vivian Girls.
