The Pitchfork Music Festival strikes up today in Union Park. If you're still looking for the perfect festival gear (or, for that matter, the perfect nails to wear to Beck), here are two styling events happening in conjunction with the musical mayhem.

· Tomorrow, Hotel Lincoln [1816 North Clark Street] hosts its annual Tie Dye Party in the Park from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Inspired by the days of summer camp (and open to tots as well as adults), the bash offers free tie-dye to any guest who brings a white piece of clothing. There will also be manicures from nail-art whiz Astrowifey, who's decking guests' paws with miniature portraits of Abe Lincoln. (You may want to get there early if you want to sit down with Astrowifey, though.)

· Also tomorrow, Moon Voyage [2010 West Pierce Avenue] in Wicker Park is hosting a braid bar with Solo Salon. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the event will offer tarot card readings, mimosas, and a vintage sidewalk sale in addition to the 'dos.
