  • Ariel Pink may or may not be decent by the time he headlines Lincoln Hall on Saturday night.

In case three full days packed with loud music and drinking in the sun aren't enough for you, Pitchfork weekend comes with a full slate of aftershows. There are a dozen official events around town, plus a handful of unsanctioned concerts with festival artists, including gigs at the Virgin Hotel (Vic Mensa, Ex Hex) and an RSVP-only hip-hop party on Friday at First Ward that features ILove­Makonnen and a collaborative project called Superchef with Lil B, Sonny Digital, and more.

Of course, more shows are happening in town than are collected here—these listings focus on festival artists and on Pitchfork-­friendly concerts not far from the park. The Reader generally can't mention underground shows at DIY venues, but weekends like this always spawn at least a handful—to find out about those, as the saying goes, "ask a punk."
