Pitchfork is a total “Boy’s Club”

So, I went to Pitchfork Music Fest on Friday night. The bands who played were good, and I knew beforehand who they were, but I was quite disappointed by the lack of female-led groups. Even the bands on Saturday and Sunday are not female-led, or diverse in any way. I’m really kind of annoyed with this apparent “boy’s club” at Pitchfork. What, did no women want to perform? I doubt that. Did they even ask? I don’t think I’ll go to Pitchfork again unless they change their ways… Anyone else go? What do you think?
