We’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about the 2013 artists and the days and stages that they will be performing. It is mind-boggling that there are so many unique opportunities at our fingertips, in fact it is absolutely crazy. We can’t wait.

Today there is a bit of recognized excitement when thinking that Kurt Vile & The Violators will be at Pendarvis Farm this summer. At this time we are not sure what stages, but we do know that they will be with us for two days so expect to see them around.

Kurt & co. are also releasing a new album this spring, Wakin On A Pretty Daze, which is out April 9 on Matador Records. Today’s video is for Wakin On A Pretty Day, a 9 minute long vile-jam put to a timelapse of a billboard-mural being put up by artist Steven Powers (ESPO). Intrigued? Watch the video.

And.. for those of us that can’t wait to see them until Pickathon, there is an earlier opportunity as with the release they will be touring and at the Doug Fir on May 10.
