Craig and I walked through the familiar gates at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and already there were people sitting by the front of the A (Aluminum) Stage set and ready to see Modest Mouse that night. It was an extremely hot day, and by extremely I mean uninhabitable. Everyone was miserable on the outside, soaked to the skin, which was most likely frying at any given point. However, all of us willingly hurried from stage-to-stage to see whatever each stage had to show us. It was a relatively lay back in the shade and enjoy the music type of day, but none-the-less I was able to enter a couple photo pits.

(I also had the ability to have a conversation with Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene (the one in the blue zig-zags; above), which you can find a listen to here.)
