Pitchfork Shocks No One, Moves Editorial Headquarters To Brooklyn

The Chicago Reader's Gossip Wolf column reported the shocking, SHOCKING, news that Pitchfork is moving the rest of their editorial headquarters to Brooklyn, NY, the hipster mecca. Pitchfork honcho Ryan Schreiber moved to New York from Chicago a few years back.

The Wolf reports, via DeRo, that what remains of the 'Fork's (apparently we're on a cozy, casual nickname basis with everyone now) editorial staff here in Chicago will move to New York by the end of January. This news either means Pitchfork will reach its editorial apex, or devolve into total self-parody.

Either way, Pitchfork's business operations and festival staff will remain in the Windy City. Meaning, the Pitchfork fest isn't going anywhere. Interesting side note: Elia Einhorn, of Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, is also shipping off to the Big Apple, because of the Pitchfork move. Einhorn is relocating because he is dating Pitchfork news editor, Amy Phillips, who is also moving to New York. (Yay, love!)

Einhorn says Scotland Yard Gospel Choir will continue in Chicago, with him at the helm. The band is working on a new record. You can read his email to DeRo here.

So best of luck in all endeavors, romantic and editorial, to all participants! Now that Pitchfork will be in New York, do you think they will give The Psychic Paramount more coverage?
