Our homies at the Chicago Reader invited us to stop by their booth at the Pitchfork Music Fest, to shoot some of their #p4ktraits (wow, that looks silly, this far removed from a cell phone screen and an instagram account; c’est la vie, such is life in 2012). They provided all the masks and costumes, as well as ice-water dipped Reader bandannas that nearly caused a riot when they ran out.
It was a great fest… Lady Gaga was running around as undercover as she’s able to pull while also rocking out with some intense jewelry and boobage; Araabmuzik brought out Chief Keef, Young Chop, and Lil Reese to play “Don’t Like”; Grimes brought out omnipresent seapunk babes Molly Soda and Clairey Pears as backup dancers; it rained torrentially and dried up quickly, making everybody’s skinny jeans completely unbearable; hipsters and older music heads stood around, nodding their heads and appreciating music instead of dancing. Personal GlitterGuts favorites were Liturgy and Flying Lotus.
