For some, Sunday might be a day of rest. For those at Pitchfork Festival
in Chicago, Sunday was likely the most anticipated, most phenomenal, most mindblowingly stupendous musical day ever. Rapper Pharoahe Monch
and minimalist noise-pop Women warmed up crowds. Blitzen Trapper
brought us out of the city and into the wild wild west, though nary an ennui-heralding tumbleweed was in sight. Indie heavyweights The Walkmen
played favorites like The Rat and In the New Year, and M83
attacked us with heavy-duty walls of sound. Finally, when the lights went down, all bets were off, and the space circus descended, and through the hail of balloons and confetti we could make out the Flaming Lips
. Nothing like Wayne Coyne
in a giant bubble to round out an amazing weekend. - Nina Mashurova
