"And Yawnfork continues." - Jim DeRogatis

Robyn dominated Friday @ the Pitchfork Festival
Pitchfork Fest

"Who knew the best performer of the day would be a blonde bombshell spinning Euro-disco? Robyn -- another Swede and a former child star who's fought hard to regain her own artistic control -- came out throwing punches in the air when she wasn't doing that elbows-high, shoulder-leaning dance all '80s female singers used to do. Fiesty, sexy, spunky, Robyn opened with the virtues of being a "Fembot," assured us that love hurts "With Every Heartbeat" and sang flawlessly through new single "Dancing on My Own" in front of a band dressed in all white, twiddling knobs and pounding synth-pad drums. The latter really exploded at the end of "Cobrastyle," with Robyn showing some kick-box dancing. Her Pink-ish pluck reached its zenith in "Don't F---ing Tell Me What to Do," during which she led some kind of aerobics class (sporting a totally Pat Benatar green beret, too). And she was the crowd favorite. Go figure." [Chicago Sun Times]
Robyn is now on tour with Kelis (that tour includes three NYC shows).

This post comes five hours into Day Two of the 2010 Pitchfork Music Festival (which is streaming online). Tonight's remaining acts are Wolf Parade, Panda Bear, and LCD Soundsystem. More pictures and a few videos from most of what came prior, below....

kudos to the people running this show, I've never been at a better-run festival what with the free water and sunscreen and shit

jim d. is a fatfuck snob. robyn was cool, to be sure, but NOT the crowd fave. there was a hardcore crowd going nuts upfront, but everyone else (including myself) were looking at each other with "people really listen to this shit" expressions. there were A LOT of people @ the comedy stage.

Dude...we've got NYC and that's a lot more than you've got.

hahaha really dude you're gonna try fucking with NYC on BV comments where pitchfork is the subject? you probably crowd surf to matt and kim

besides the yankees, what does nyc have that chicago doesn't?

museums- on par (art institute is arguably the best in the country.)

architecture- close call. i guess the statue of liberty wins it.

location- i'm giving a slight nod to lake michigan on this one.

sports- 4 teams, all 15 mins. from the loop.

public trans- nyc is a fucking mess. us again.

nightlife- on par (we get all the bands, and 2 more top-tier fests.)
*obviously, nyc trumps in opera and theater.

standard of living- we're ranked 45th in the world, nyc is ranked 49th. according to overall "quality of life."

intangibles- i realize that nyc has more "juice." i prefer chi's neighborhood grid, and clean, uncluttered streets to nyc's urban sprawl. and although i believe nyc's citizens to be more savvy and vital, chicagoans seem to be more sincere and friendly.

I have never lived in Chicago but visited 3 times and lived in nyc all my life. I like nyc better but just a matter of personal choice, I would def say Chicago is almost on par with nyc and if I were to live anywhere else in this country it would be Chicago.

NYC is the supreme champ of all cities.
I like Chicago a lot, but do not dare compare to "the city so nice they named it twice"
