A few weeks back, I met a guy named Hans who works at Google at an awesome bar in the Mish called Blenders (more on that some other day). He told me that if there was one thing I had to do this summer, it’s go to Chicago to see the Pitchfork Music Fest. And so we went!
Chicago is a great place, with great street art and graffiti culture.
I’m told that Chicago wants really bad to be Frisco, and we found some evidence. Chicago has a bar called “Beauty Bar” just like in the Mish, and check out the tag on the window:
There is also incredible bathroom art!
But enough about the art and the city, there was music to be enjoyed. We had a great time watching some of the best unkown acts we had ever seen! Video highlights after the jump!
