|Pitchfork Music Festival|
This past summer I got the chance to go to Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Fucking amazing. Here is a list of 10 of my favorite performances of the weekend. Kinda sorta in order.
|1|| ||The Flaming Lips|
Their set was basically a huge ass party. If you haven't seen them live and get a chance to, I HIGHLY recommend it.
There was this kid dancing all alone behind the sound tent. Everyone was staring at him him for the longest while until someone else jumped in. More and more came until it was a dance party.
here's a video of it: pt1: ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJcaUgSnSoA

Really good set. Awesome band.
|4|| ||Frightened Rabbit|
I had never heard of these guys before pitchfork. I liked their name so I went over to their stage when it was their turn to play. I was blown out of the water. Definitely the band I've listened to most since pitchfork.
Loved em' before pitchfork. Really good set, good sound, good vibes.
|6|| ||Final Fantasy|
Owen Pallett's band. He can do really, REALLY amazing things with a violin and loop station. If you haven't heard him I highly recommend you give him a listen. It's different, but well worth it.
|7|| ||Grizzly Bear|
|8|| ||The Thermals|
|10|| ||Cymbals Eat Guitars|
|seems like a great festival. i saw m83 over the summer and they were amazing|
|I've seen vids of Final Fantasy live, really interesting stuff he does. Still wanna catch The Lips.|
|I went in '08. Possibly the most fun I've ever had.|
|i saw the flaming lips in minnesota at the 10,000 lakes festival, everyone there was so fucked up. the people next to me were passing around a bag of shrooms, was pretty crazy|
|You should have seen The National Saturday night, it was also an extremely amazing experience. What an absolutely fantastic musical weekend. I had such a great time, although I'm kind of upset that I didn't see Built To Spill, Jesus Lizard and Yo La Tengo Friday night, would have been awesome. oh well|
|had a look at the vids in 2, pretty cool. I'm surprised that Japandroids isn't higher up this list tho|
|Haha no, you inspired me to make mine. I noticed we saw some different bands and The Flaming Lips have a new album out today, so I did it in celebration of them|
