This Week in Great Music: 8/9 – 8/15
By Sarah on August 9, 2010
After three days of Lollapalooza, I kind of don’t want to think about music right now. Fortunately for those of us who are sort of burnt out at the moment, there’s not a lot going on. I’ll be at the Rufus Wainwright show on Friday. I’m not in love with his new album, but as a Rufus (and Martha) fangirl, I’ll go to the concert all the same. Maybe I will love the new songs more, seeing them live.

The indie music world comes to a screeching halt this weekend as Pitchfork rolls into town. Three-day tickets have been sold out for ages, so try hitting up Craigslist or something to make your way in.
