As we start pulling out our neon short-shorts, bandanas, sunglasses & fanny packs, and begin to cover our Northern white bodies in SPF 50 in preparation for the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival / Flatstock #30, taking place this weekend (there are still tickets left, maybe), we'd like to take a look back at last year's festival and share some, of the really hard work we put into entertaining the world. So, without further self-adoration we present Flatstock, 2010 a video by The Post Family.
Mark Brickey from Hero Design Studio & the family festival team take you around Flatstock #26 at Pitchfork Music Festival 2010. Along the way we check in with some of the world class "designers" in the gig poster scene to find out who's tracing, and who's makin' a buck off bootleg merchandise. We talk with some of the long-timers -- the great gig poster makers who've been around even before Arcade Fire needed posters, as well as a newcomer. Most of all we have some fuckin' fun.
Besides letting Mark Brickey accost all the printers at Flatstock we let Chicago's very own Being Ewert reach into the soul of an extremely funny man, Wyatt Cenac, known for his funny work on funny shows like The Daily Show. Watch and listen as James Ewert Jr. coaxes Wyatt to reveal every secret about his funniness and what goes on at The Daily Show.
