Pitchfork Festival - Day 3 - 7/21/2013

After entering with a robed choir behind him, R. Kelly starts stringing together his hits, medley style. A verse, a chorus, and then on to the next. Songs about "getting freaky in the club," the kitchen, the car, wherever. Kelly was the subject of a years-long investigation over child-pornography charges, but was eventually acquitted in 2008. None of that appears to matter to anyone left in the park tonight, as one of the largest crowds in Pitchfork history flocks to check out the dominant R&B performer of the last two decades. The Union Park crowd reaction isn't quite as over-the-top as that of his typical audience, but the dancing continues to escalate until the set peaks with "When a Woman's Fed Up" and the stepping songs "Happy People" and "Step in the Name of Love," accompanied by white balloons. Kelly saves "I Believe I Can Fly" for the encore, and this time white-dove balloons fill the sky. [Chicago Tribune]
Pitchfork Music Festival 2013 wrapped up on Sunday (7/21) with its most hip hop heavy day, including sets from rappers El-P, Killer Mike, Lil B, and Tree, plus rap producers TNGHT and Evian Christ (who both happen to be Kanye collaborators). And not exactly rap, but in that real there were also sets from MIA and obscure up-and-comer R. Kelly. It wasn't all hip hop though. Sunday also gave us sets from Foxygen (whose singer, Sam France, continued his streak of climbing at festivals), Yo La Tengo, Waxahatchee, Autre Ne Veut, Glass Candy, and more. Pictures of the final day of the festival are in this post.

no way the foxygen guy climbed stuff?

Not saying this to be a typical BV comment douchebag, but Sky Ferreira looks different these days. Less model-ish, and more messy. Again, it's not a bad thing, but it's just evident.

"Kelly was the subject of a years-long investigation over child-pornography charges, but was eventually acquitted in 2008. None of that appears to matter to anyone left in the park tonight, as one of the largest crowds in Pitchfork history flocks to check out the dominant R&B performer of the last two decades."

That's a cute way of saying Pitchfork fans have absolutely no integrity.

I think he's referring to the fact it sounds a bit like Velvet Underground and Nico, you facetious wankbag

Absolutely beautiful video. I didn't know that they had such nice surf in Hoboken, N.J. I saw Yo La Tengo at The Academy of Music in Northampton, Mass. last September. They were excellent. They have a big fanbase in The Pioneer Valley & they always seem to find there way back at least 1x or 2x per year. I'm sure glad of that! Peace Be With You!
