The print music magazine is alive and well at Pitchfork. The media group predominately known for their music website, reviews and stellar outdoor festivals is celebrating the release of the fourth issue of The Pitchfork Review with two Chicago parties scheduled this weekend. Tonight, kick things off with DJ sets at Analogue while the festivities continue Saturday night with a concert and live readings at The Hideout.

The Pitchfork Review was first released in December 2013 to focus on long-form music writing along with an emphasis on design and photography. This issue of the quarterly publication will feature a broad-range of in-depth pieces to satisfy music lovers from a variety of genres. Topics include the recording of David Bowie’s 1977 album Low, a profile on New York City’s underground EDM club NASA and an exploration of the influential Canadian metal label Profound Lore.

This release, like previous issues, includes an exclusive 7" record of unreleased material. This time around it will feature tracks from indie singer-songwriter Zola Jesus and Madison's The Tea Heads.

To kick off the celebration on Friday night, Creative Director Michael Renaud and Editor-in-Chief Jessica Hopper will be spinning some of their favorite records at Analogue starting at 10 p.m.

Saturday night, readers will be able to enjoy live performances by The Lemons and Jimmy Whispers at the Hideout. Pitchfork staff will also be on hand for live readings. Doors open at 8 p.m. and advanced tickets are available through The Hideout's website.

Issues of The Pitchfork Review will be available for sale at each event. Readers looking to dig in before either party can find the issue on select newsstands or for sale at
