Ranking Pitchfork 2016
This year saw a lot of great performances from acts who we would expect it from, and some we wouldn’t. I didn’t get to see every set, but I saw alot. These were the best in my opinion:
1. Savages-Jehnny Beth and her band destroyed a mid-afternoon set on the main stage the same way Deafheaven did in 2014.
4. Blood Orange-I was afraid the performance would be too chill based on Freetown Sound‘s heavy vibeness. All that was out to rest when Dev Hynes came out and poured his heart and soul out on the stage.
5. Broken Social Scene-You’d never know it’d been 5 years since they played live (well, except for the night before at Metro). They played some jams from Forgiveness Rock Record (recorded here in Chicago), and gave us a taste of the new album. It all sounded great to me.
