Les Savy Fav Offers Hair Cuts for Cash, Publicity



Tim Harrington, singer of Brooklyn-based Les Savy Fav offered haircuts (pretty ugly head-shavings, really) for a paltry $2 at Pitchfork Music Festival on Saturday.

Harrington said bluntly that his band is broke, he is broke and he was looking to make a little cash. The publicity of the stunt (a publicity stunt?) drew a large audience to Harrington's corner of the Pitchfork world.

Harrington gave out about 15 trims, totaling $30 for an afternoon's work. Here's to the brave souls who offered up their mane to help Les Savy Fav keep on keepin' on.
