You're Running Out of Time to Get Your 'Fork On

2007_03_pitchfork.jpgPitchfork has announced that the super-affordable three-day passes for their festival, along with tickets to Friday night's bill (featuring one band we're really excited to see), are already sold-out.

Tickets for Saturday and Sunday are still available. But believe us when we say that with a line-up including (and this is just a teensy sampling) Cat Power, Girl Talk, Oxford Collapse, The New Pornographers, Stephen Malkmus, De La Soul, Klaxons, and The Ponys, we're sure that won't be the case for much longer.

In other Pitchfork related news, The Reader dropped news of some killer afterparties going on at The Empty Bottle during the Pitchfork Festival weekend -- our pick of the three shows would be Saturday's bill with Flosstradamus, Chromeo, and Thunderheist -- so we're really trying to figure out just when we're going to be able to fit some sleep into that weekend's bulging schedule.

UPDATE: Perhaps Sissy Boy Slap Party will be added to the bill at the last second?
