Pygmalion Music Festival expands in '09

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Juice Williams is great, but he's not the only reason to head downstate this fall. The Pygmalion Music Festival hits Champaign-Urbana (the home of Parasol Records, Polyvinyl Records and REO Speedwagon, among others) for the fifth year September 16-19, and it's got an expanded lineup this year, with 15 venues hosting over 100 performers, including Iron & Wine, RJD2, Lucero, Low and The Books. You know what 15 venues means, don't you? No porta-potties.

Now that we've got you interested, check out the full schedule after the jump. Since we know how much you love to support local acts, we've starred the Chicago acts for you. Festival passes start at $60.
