Savages & Sky Ferreira @ Lincoln Hall - 7/19/2013
Bjork's headlining Pitchfork set was cut short Friday night, but some lucky (or possibly unlucky) fans did get a bit more, and I don't mean at the Bjork-themed party happening at Berlin. Bjork was a surprise DJ at the sold out Savages/Sky Ferreira official P4K aftershow happening at Lincoln Hall that night. She was sort of out of sight though, so no good pictures (here's one), but we do have some great ones of both scheduled performers in this post.
If you were there, what did you think of Bjork's setlist? Danielle Harpy wasn't pleased...
"To say that Bjork's DJ set was off-beat is a huge understatement. It was hateful. torturous. Not music, but the sound of chainsaws on trees, jackhammers on cement and at a volume that was like hitting our heads with a hammer. It did not nothing but make me angry that she was so anti-human."Ouch...
For Savages it was their second of two nights at the venue and the night before they played Pitchfork (stay tuned for pictures and review from Saturday). Sky played the fest on Sunday (pics coming from that too).

Savages at Lincoln Hall on 7.18.2013 (via BVChicago Instagram)
On Thursday night (7/18), Savages and Parquet Courts played a Sound Opinions live show at Lincoln Hall. The night consisted of interview segments for each band, by hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, followed by short sets. For Savages, the S.O. show served as their Chicago debut and they'll also be headlining the venue again tonight (Friday, 7/19). During the group's interview segment, founding member Gemma Thompson spoke of her affinity for Wire (who they'll share the stage with this weekend at Pitchfork Fest) and how she hadn't picked up a guitar until she was a fine arts major who needed to compose a soundtrack for an exhibit. If you're headed to Pitchfork Festival, you can also catch Savages at 4:15PM on July 20 on the Green Stage.
Check out some video footage of both Savages and Parquet Courts from Sound Opinions Live below...
