Formed by roommates Max Kakacek and Julian Ehrlich (former members of the Smith Westerns and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, respectively), Whitney has quickly solidified itself as one of the year's most hotly-tipped bands. Cue the breathless praise for the band's debut, Light Upon the Lake, which puts a lovelorn, soulful spin on warm folk rock  that is firmly indebted to the Band and Crosby, Stills & Nash. If you're looking for a more intimate glimpse at one of the buzzed-about acts on the Pitchfork Music Festival bill, this official aftershow is the place to be. Toronto rocker Michael Rault and local pop crooner Jimmy Whispers support.
