The original Intonation Music Festival has announced several more impressive
acts for the independent music concert to be held June 24-25 in Union Park.
Joining previously announced acts Bloc Party and the Streets are the
much-hyped English rapper Lady Sovereign, Montreal's post-punk quartet the
Stills, veteran Japanese noise-rockers the Boredoms, acoustic troubadour
Jose Gonzalez, Brooklyn punks Panthers and dance artists Chromeo.
Also booked is a rare performance by Jon Brion, the Hollywood film scorer
and orchestral pop songwriter who has worked with Kanye West, Fiona Apple
and Aimee Mann.
Promoters sold out a limited number of advance tickets on Monday, but
regular tickets are now on sale $20 for a one-day pass and $35 for a two-day
pass through www.intonationmusicfest.com. They promise to announce
additional acts soon.
Meanwhile, organizers of the competing Pitchfork Music Festival, who
broke from Intonation after last year's inaugural festival, pledge to
announce more acts soon for their concerts in Union Park, Ashland and
Randolph, July 29-30 (www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com).
