Good news for music fans who don't mind drinking beer outside on a crisp autumn afternoon: Pitchfork is throwing a one-day festival dedicated to craft beer and excellent indie bands. They're calling it OctFest (presumably a play on "Octoberfest," a poorly-defined period of encouraged daydrinking that now spans from Labor Day to Thanksgiving), and are promising a stacked bill including Ohio indie rock heroes Guided By Voices and soul phenom Charles Bradley. What's more, Okkervil River, the Sadies, Kilo Kish, and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart will also perform.

OctFest is scheduled to go down at the ginormous Brooklyn Hangar... on September 9th. 40 different breweries will be serving attendees unlimited tastings of their best ales, lagers, and stouts, and plenty of food vendors will be on hand to help you soak up all the swill and keep going back for more. Local beermakers including Braven, Bronx Brewery and Singlecut will mix outsiders like Manchester, England's Cloudwater and Hawaiian purveyors Kona. Tickets for Pitchfork's beer blowout are $60 a piece (or two for $100) and are already on sale here. And because nobody can stop us, here's some Charles Bradley as a preview:
