If it ain’t broke, why fix it? At least that’s what we said when we tried to think of how to top Jason Wyatt Frederick‘s incredible Where’s Waldo?-inspired B Side cover from last year’s Pitchfork Music Festival issue. So like the Where’s Waldo? franchise, we’re going to just keep plying Jason for variations on that cover until we run the thing into the ground. Once again, Jason filled his illustration with notable Chicagoans (from the music scene and elsewhere), the occasional Pitchfork act, and other recognizable folks. Except this time, he really outdid himself.
There are 69 notable people, institutions, and groups on this year’s cover, a great deal more than on last year’s. All you have to do is figure out who they are, because like last year, the readers who correctly identify the most people on the cover will receive three-day passes to the Pitchfork Music Festival.
We’re giving the two winners one three-day pass each to this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival, along with a screen print of this year’s B Side cover. We’re also giving away screen prints to three runners-up in the contest.
So hurry up and send your answers, along with your full name, to firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to see a bunch of great music on us. Deadline is 2 PM tomorrow—that’s Thursday, July 18.
Full, high-resolution cover after the jump.
