The always excellent Pygmalion Music Festival released the first batch of artists for their annual indie show. Dinosaur Jr., Grizzly Bear, Cloud Nothings, and Tennis will headline the September 27-29, 2012, festival held in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. More acts will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Pygmalion runs similar to a SXSW type of festival with artists playing in venues around town. Local, regional, and national acts will all be in the mix — a crowd that has grown substantially since the first Pygmalion back in 2005.
