Pitchfork Presents | In Sight Out: Whitney
In collaboration with our partners at Pitchfork , we’re excited to host another installment of the “In Sight Out” series — which covers new perspectives in music, art, and culture — with a conversation between Whitney and Leor Galil, staff writer for the Chicago Reader whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, Pitchfork, RollingStone.com, MTV News and Spin Magazine.
Tickets are $5, available for purchase here
Whitney, the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek, will release their sophomore album, “Forever Turned Around,” on August 30th via Secretly Canadian. On the follow up to their much-beloved debut, 2016’s “Light Upon the Lake,” Ehrlich and Kakacek grapple with the anxiety and acceptance that time is limited and navigate questions of mortality, doubt, love, and friendship.
Pitchfork’s previous “In Sight Out” conversations have featured Björk, Courtney Barnett, Chance the Rapper, Vince Staples, Mitski, Tori Amos, Nile Rodgers, Genesis P-Orridge, Run the Jewels, Neko Case, Jeff Tweedy, Carrie Brownstein, and others.
