Go get your vintage sewing machine tattoo touched up, because this year's Pitchfork Music Festival starts tomorrow! The annual festival is an institution at this point, bringing dozens of bands and thousands of canvas shoe enthusiasts to Chicago's Union Park. It has become a tradition here at ARTicle to dig through the Art Institute's collection for pieces that evoke the names of a few of the fest's featured artists. Below is this year's selection. The current popularity of band names that are just a noun or adjective+noun should hopefully make most of the answers pretty straightforward. Check the festival's line-up for point of reference. Leave your answers in the comments. First person to get them all correct wins 2 free tickets to the Art Institute. GO!
