    Joanna Newsom

    Joanna Newsom has helped morph the form of female singer/songwriter out of "pretty girl who sings" into one that leans far more toward multi-instrumentalists with off-beat strengths and non-pop sentiments. The solitary fact that she plays the harp live means that a Newsom show is always spectacular. Since 2010's Have One On Me, Newsom's gotten engaged to SNL darling Andy Samberg, so we might see the scruffy comedian grooving to her folksy tunes in the crowd. She's also due for a new album and Pitchfork might be the perfect setting to debut fresh material.
