Klaxons – Live @ Pitchfork + Festival Videos

Date July 20, 2007

Tired of Pitchfork Fest coverage yet? Well, this is the last post on the subject for a long time, and I have some great bands to cover starting next week. After an incredible Of Montreal set, I decided to chill out a the Balance Stage for a bit. I caught the end of The Field [...]

Of Montreal – Live @ Pitchfork

Date July 20, 2007

Going into Pitchfork Fest, my most anticipated act was undoubtedly Of Montreal. Having already seen the band, my expectations were set very high.

Dan Deacon / Girl Talk – Live @ Pitchfork

Date July 18, 2007

After what had been so far a pretty laid back Saturday, I was ready to do some dancing so I headed over to the Balance Stage. I caught the end of Oxford Collapse, who were plagued with some of the worst sound problems of the day (their bass was extremely loud while the vocals and [...]
