Pitchfork Day One Recap

It wouldn't be a music festival if it weren't liquid magma hot or rainy. Luckily at Pitchfork in Chicago, we had both on day one. That's a good sign, right?

We can't do much complaining though when we're surrounded by so much amazing music. Day one blew us away, and one band we've talked about before really stood out: Japandroids. Maybe it was the rain breaking into sunshine during their second song, maybe it was crazy energy these guys jack into their set... whatever it was, we don't care because it was awesome. Japandroids rawkus performance had the crowd at the Balance stage going nuts. If you get a chance to catch these guys live - do it.

Also there was Feist. Ahhh Feist... swoon. We're in love and we don't care who knows!
