Take A Stab At Pitchfork This Weekend — 25 Artists Not To Miss

11) [lastfm]Kurt Vile[/lastfm]: Able to play the guitar, trumpet, banjo, and keyboard, Kurt Vile is a Philidelphian singer songwriter who’s got quite some pipes on him as well. Unlike many of the other bands at Pitchfork, who are best compared to other indie or punk bands, Vile is best likened to Rock N’ Roll greats such as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Bob Seger. His music can be called heartland rock, roots rock, or just rock, but whatever you want to call it, don’t miss it because in addition to being darn good rock music, it’ll also be a welcome change of pace from the other bands you’ll hear at the fest.
