Lotus Plaza, the current project of Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt, are headed our way next week to perform on Saturday (7/14) of the Pitchfork Music Festival. Single-day tickets are still available. Lockett and co. will hit Chicago one day before their festival appearance to headline Subterranean with support from Dent May and Hollow Stars. Advance tickets are on sale.

Oxford, Mississippi-based musician Dent May released his newest LP, Do Things, last month via Paw Tracks. Stream the album tracks “Home Groan” and “Best Friend” at the bottom of this post. A goofy video for “Best Friend” is also below. May also recently took to covering the Grateful Dead’s “Shakedown Street,” which you can stream and/or download below. The Chicago show is just one stop on the group’s summer tour schedule. All dates are listed below.

Opening the show will be Atlanta band Hollow Stars, which features former Deerhunter guitarist Colin Mee. They released a new EP, called Neshama, in February via CoCo Art. Stream the album at the bottom of this post. Hollow Stars begin a summer tour with Lotus Plaza today. All dates are listed below.
