Neneh Cherry / Giorgio Moroder / hula hooper
Alt-rock legend Beck played a career-spanning set with heavy emphasis on his most recent records. He didn't shy away from the hits, pleasing both longtime fans and casual listeners. Opening with the classic Odelay cut "Devil's Haircut", Beck and his band were possibly the tightest act of the entire day. Particularly exciting was his tribute to fellow performer Giorgio Morodor, a cover of Donna Summer's Morodor-produced hit, "I Feel Love." Beck kept the crowd excited for his entire ninety-minute headlining set with a palpable energy during "Loser" and a particularly rousing rendition of "Where It's At." [-Arielle Gordon]Pitchfork Festival is currently on its third and final day in Chicago's Union Park. It kicked off this past Friday (7/18) and we posted pictures and wrote about that at BrooklynVegan (where the above quote is from). Here's a second set of pictures of day 1.

Alt-J at Metro on 3.28.2013
Alt-J came through Chicago last Thursday (3/28) to play a sold-out show at Metro with support from experimental pop outfit Hundred Waters. Hundred Waters took the stage at 9PM and delivered an eclectic, genre-hopping set. Amidst the the chaos of high frequency synths that bordered white noise, vocalists Nicole Miglis and Sam Moss kept things grounded with their beautiful harmonies. After a brief intermission, Alt-J entered to face a roaring crowd. Many fans raised their hands to form a triangle, the band's de-facto logo. Playing to a much bigger audience than their first visit to Chicago, the band returned with an intricate lighting setup, as well as a few smoke machines. They blazed through their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which has been rehearsed to near perfection. They also performed a new song called "Buffalo," and an acapella cover of College's "A Real Hero."
A set of pictures and the full setlist from their 3/28 performance at Metro are in this post. More below...

Chelsea Wolfe @ Lincoln Hall in August (more by Zach Pollack)
As mentioned, the 2013 edition of Tomorrow Never Knows is slated to take place from January 16-20 at venues throughout the city. More acts have now been added to the festival, some to existing shows and some as brand new events.
One of those brand new shows is the stacked lineup of Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude at Schubas on January 19. Ms. Wolfe made her Chicago debut at Lincoln Hall this summer, and recently released the great Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs via Sargent House. She's got an electric, full-band album coming soon. Sweden's The Amazing welcomed their Gentle Stream LP last month in the US via Partisan Records. They're currently supporting Tame Impala on tour and will be in Chicago on November 13 to play Metro. King Dude (aka TJ Cowgill) released his new album, Burning Daylight, in October via DAIS. He'll embark on a North American tour this weekend, which is set to reach Chicago on December 12 for a performance at the Empty Bottle. Tickets for Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude go on sale this Friday (11/9) at noon CST.
As mentioned, The Walkmen, who played Metro as part of TNK 2012, will be playing the Vic with Father John Misty on January 18. That show is now part of Tomorrow Never Knows, with limited availability for 5-Day Pass holders. Speaking of 5-day passes, they are still available.
