Pitchfork Festival in February

Here’s a little something to steal the thunder of CMJ, which hits the neighborhood Oct. 22: The online music magazine Pitchfork is planning a festival in Manhattan for next February that, according to ArtsBeat, will consist of “visual artists and game designers at galleries, museums and unconventional performance spaces around the city, along with four days of performances at clubs run by Bowery Presents.” Mercury Lounge and Bowery Ballroom are among the planned venues.
