Hilarity

• The New York Times' Kelefa Sanneh reviewed the Pitchfork-curated Intonation Music Festival, ultimately giving it a numerical value of 7.3 and making me laugh very hard over it. Sanneh lamented the power that the Fork has in bringing relatively unknown indie bands to relative success, and got smart with putting every performing band into context with their respective Pitchfork numerical value. Overall I enjoyed reading the review, but was disheartened to hear the Go! Team compared to the Black-Eyed Peas (wtf?). Pitchfork may be amateur-operated, but the influence they have comes from a reputation of being spot-on with recommending great pop records and bringing them to the forefront (although their pretentious bravado and obsession with mainstream hip-hop can be pretty retarded; this is mostly a case-by-case issue of different writers). Read the story. Nick Sylvester (cynic, Village Voice) offers a different spin.

• Speaking of Pitchfork's Festival, it was announced there that Broken Social Scene member Dave Newfeld is suing the NYPD for wrongful arrest and use of excessive force after the cops beat the shit out of him and threw him in jail on possession of some weed. Read the story.

• (via Village Voice) Pete Doherty (ex-frontman of the Libertines, current frontman of Babyshambles) is aiming to star in a documentary about his life. Story on Gigwise.
