Craig’s Pitchfork Recap — Day 3

Comments Off on Craig’s Pitchfork Recap — Day 3 18 July 2010

A sudden downpour made the first 20 minutes of the day a soggy experience. Kudos to the Pitchfork crew for getting tarps on and off everything so quickly to keep everything on time.

George and I could probably live on Chipotle Chicken Burgers.

The record sale on-site can leave you with a heavy bag of great tunes and a light wallet.

Beach House’s performance was the definition of the word “dreamy.” Victoria LeGrand’s vocals filled the festival grounds with good vibes on another hot day that can test your patience.

Based on their performance and reception, Local Natives probably won’t be playing side stages for too much longer.

The duo known as Lightning Bolt played a blistering set in the blistering heat. Playing that hard and fast in a luchador mask seems very strenuous.

St. Vincent’s set up is so unusual but perfect for her baroque rock explorations. Truly beautiful set featuring woodwinds, vioin, and some more “traditional” rock instruments.

Here we Go Magic didn’t disappoint, but they had to compete with St. Vincent’s last few songs and a giant dragon on stage for Major Lazer.

Big Boi brought some hip-hop flair to help the festival wind down and peppered his set with some huge hits from his group, Outkast.

After years of relative obscurity and influencing a generation of independent musicians, Pavement is getting the respect they deserve through their reunion shows. The set at Pitchfork demonstrated their love of the craft and their fans showed their appreciation of their music.

It’s been a pleasure sharing the experience of the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival with you. We’ll have more on Indy Underground tonight at 8pm, including conversation with Broken Social Scene, St. Vincent, Here We Go Magic, and Bear in Heaven.
