[EVENT & PLAYLIST] Pitchfork Festival
You may recall us mentioning we met a super talented illustrator while watching Warpaint at Bonnaroo last month. No? It's ok, we don't expect you to remember everything we do, we have a hard time keeping up ourselves. (You can read our Bonnaroo recap here if you'd like).
Well, Brian Butler was at Bonnaroo this year illustrating the performances, it's kind of his thing. He goes to shows, sketchbook and sharpie/marker pen/felt-tip/weapon of choice in hand, and captures the atmosphere, the artist, the audience, the whole experience on paper. This project is aptly named Show Drawn and it's one of the coolest ways of combining our two loves - music and art, so naturally we are fans.
Brian and his friend Jaime (who's a Brooklyn-based photographer) will be heading up to Chicago from Miami and New York respectively, to cover Pitchfork on our behalf. To help us deal with our severe FOMO this weekend, we've made a playlist of our favorite artists at the festival.
There's a ton of other great acts performing too, including Wild Beasts, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Real Estate, Sun Kil Moon, Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, Mas Ysa, DIIV, Majical Cloudz & Kendrick Lamar, and, well we could go on but why not just head over to the Pitchfork Festival website to see the full line-up.
Stay tuned to see the visual feast Brian and Jaime create from their experience at the festival.
