Pitchfork Day Two: mud, sweat, and tears 

Andrea Bauer
Anyone who showed up at Pitchfork Saturday before 4 PM pretty much got drenched. And muddy.

Atlas Sound's Bradford Cox: "Do you want to hear some atonal, aleatory music? For three hours?"
Andrea Bauer
Yes, the camera lens was fogged by the rain. But we couldn't resist photographing that throat.

Moments before the mud mosh pit erupted.

About to get down and dirty with Liturgy.

It's one way to cool off.

One of the mud-pit moshers.

Too bad there's no shoe-shine booth at Pitchfork.

Moments after the deluge, the clouds parted and a beam of light descended on this festival goer.

Cults began their midday set with a mic check of "Fuck the rain, fuck the rain, fuck the rain."

We all like Nicolas Jaar, but the set was a wee bit mild-mannered to pass up Wild Flag for.

Wild Flag's Carrie Brownstein looks to the sky and tells the rain to stop. It did.
Aundre Larrow
He just shouted his Pitchfork score. Seriously.

Sleigh Bells brings the hardcore party-pop to Pitchfork . . . thank god.
Andrea Bauer
We missed the shot of someone tossing a Chicago Reader bandana on the stage and Alexis Krauss putting it on her lovely, sweaty head. But it happened.
Andrea Bauer
Perhaps the high point of Saturday.

If there was a Sleigh Bells workout video, we'd all be in excellent shape.
Aundre Larrow
It's OK if you only know who the Chromatics are because they're on the Drive soundtrack.
Andrea Bauer
Hot Chip: the same song over and over and over and over and over.
Andrea Bauer
How low can you go?
Andrea Bauer
It got pretty gross out there by 8 PM.
Aundre Larrow
Danny Brown, the Bill Murray of Pitchfork.
Aundre Larrow
Detroit's finest.
Andrea Bauer
Godspeed You! Black Emperor's set might have looked . . . delicate. But it ended with the parting of Lake Michigan.
Aundre Larrow
Weirdness and witchiness.
Aundre Larrow
Grimes carries accessible hooks into genuinely freaky spaces.
Aundre Larrow
Our favorite thing about Grimes's set: her backup dancers' outfits.
