"It was a rumor the whole night-- first a whisper, then a text, then a Tweet, then a blog post. It seemed too improbable to be true. Kanye West performing at Williamsburg's 600-capacity Brooklyn Bowl?! No way. But then, around 2 a.m., the man showed up on Pitchfork's #Offline Festival stage with his Horus chain and pyramid ring to celebrate the third anniversary of his friend and collaborator A-Trak's Fool's Gold imprint. He would go onto perform an all-killer five-song set of nothing but 2010 Internet smashes: "So Appalled", "Monster", "Devil in a New Dress", "Power", and "Runaway".

While Kanye was naturally the star of the evening, he was not the only surprise. GZA rolled through after Kanye's set to lead a "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" sing-a-long and do "Liquid Swords" and Chromeo (led by singer Dave 1, who is also A-Trak's brother) stopped by deep in the night. Other performers for the anniversary blowout included G.O.O.D. Music up-and-comer CyHi Da Prynce, Japanese rockers the Suzan, MPC freak araabMUZIK, and Atlanta DJ and producer Treasure Fingers."
