This weekend, Ben and I:
Went to the Pitchfork Music Festival at Union Park in Chicago. It was AWESOME.
We saw many bands, including:
The Ruby Suns:
Spiritualized (Jason Pierce is the sexiest heroin addict ever):
And...the main draw for us...
They were awesome. They only played for an hour, as the park closed at 10. But what a fucking hourrrrrrr. They mostly played new stuff, which was all really incredible (a relief, I thought). Also, Panda Bear, Avey Tare, and Geologist all looked GOOD, even with Avey Tare's hat.
We also saw Caribou and Fleet Foxes and Spoon and The Hold Steady and lots of other good bands. But mostly it was Animal Collective. FUCK THEY WERE GOOD.
