Pygmalion Music Festival will take Champaign-Urbana, Ill. by storm again this fall. Now in its fourth year and taking place over the course of four days, September 17-20, Nicodemus Agency has again partnered with Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and Polyvinyl Record Co. to present twenty different shows in 9  different venues. Confirmed artists include everyone from Yo La Tengo and Dan Deacon to High Places and Black Mountain to Asobi Seksu and Times New Viking.
 
2008 marks a decidedly different approach to the festival, as a great majority of the venues are located within a few minutes walk from each other. The festival will be centered around staple venues The Canopy Club and Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, as well as neighborhood additions, Krannert Art Museum and Red Herring.  
 
New to the festival this year as well is the premiere of day parties and pre-parties. Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the festival, venues will be showcasing some of the best up and coming local talent that Champaign-Urbana has brewing, crossing genre lines and mixing it up along the way. And in the weeks leading up the festival, Pygmalion will partner with sponsor Urban Outfitters to present four pre-parties, including a performance from Polyvinyl and Nicodemus roster artist, Headlights, who are local to Champaign-Urbana .
