Pitchfork is Down!

UPDATE: At 3:29 PM…

Pitchfork is back online!

After several weeks of intermittent service, it appears that Pitchfork has gone down. Upon entering the URL, I encountered a “Not Found! 6” message.. Maybe someone unplugged something, or perhaps it was simple overload of the server. Whatever the case, the music world can only hope and pray for a safe and fast recovery. Just so you know, 

What will the world do without Pitchfork? 

*Potential Reasons Why Pitchfork is Down*


-Someone spotted Jeff Magnum

-Brooklyn/Chicago/Manhattan are on fire

-Carles took out Ryan Schrieber (sp?)

-My girls? More like “my hurls”… … …

-The staff are celebrating Sacha Distel’s 76th birthday/listening to the Here We Go Magic album in the dark and deciding on it’s rating.. I’m guessing that the number being floated around are 7.6 and  8.9.


Please note: Pitchfork TV is still up and running, you can check that out here.


So if you need to waste those ten minutes at the office, or in your basement, here is a list of other decent music sites to read today. Check it out after the jump. Enjoy!

Thanks for the link to the blog and the new Hold Steady vid! Also, I would really, really, really like to see Carles fight anyone at Pitchfork. That’s a great idea. Someone should arrange that.
