Chicago, oh how we love you. Excellent neighborhood restaurants, (Lula Cafe & Nightwood). Beautiful music theaters and cozy local clubs, (The Hideout). Dreamy outdoor spaces, (Union Park). Fantastic architecture, (too many spots to mention). And last but not least, a history of great bands, (Big Black, Califone, Naked Raygun, etc…). All of which makes it the ideal setting for the annual Pitchfork Music Festival.
So what did this year’s festival look like? 98-degree heat, dozens of food vendors, thousands of bicycles, heaps of indie labels, and roughly 50,000 sweaty music lovers spazzing out, singing along and taking naps. Thanks again Chicago, we’ll see you next year. We took a lot of photos.
