    Music festivals are where some of our most incredible summer memories are born. Around the amazingly temperate Pitchfork Fest this weekend, we overheard many people discussing whether R&B was having something of a heyday at the fest, and we’d have to agree. From Kelela's free-spirited alluring performance, to FKA Twigs witchy chest-rumbling minimalist R&B, to Giorgio Moroder's Donna Summer disco flashbacks during his DJ set, sultry female vocals left some of the most memorable performances of the fest.

    And then there was the touching Footwork tribute to the recently-passed DJ Rashad by DJ Spinn, Tek Life, and crew (lots of crew!), the bittersweet indie-god lullabies of Neutral Milk Hotel (sadly, no photos were allowed), St. Vincent's evil wind-up doll choreographed shredding, Pusha T giving it his all, and many, many more memorable experiences.

    Chi-town showed us some amazing hospitality and some killer live music, and after a much-needed power nap, we’ll be more than excited to see what next year’s Pitchfork Fest has to offer.
