This is my eighth Pitchfork Festival, and Sleater-Kinney’s headlining Saturday night set was easily the greatest Pitchfork performance I’ve ever seen. As ever, they’re a seething, emotional, spectacular force. Corin Tucker used to take a few songs to get her feral howl warmed up; here, she launched right in, 0-100 real quick. And by the time she hit a huge final note on a devastating version of “Sympathy,” I was a sobbing wreck. Her and Janet Weiss throwing their arms over each other’s shoulders and waving as they left the stage was a life-affirming sight. New touring multi-instrumentalist Katie Harkin was a fun addition, filling out the songs with whatever extra sounds they needed. Still, whenever she left the stage, I’d get excited because it would mean that they were about to get into some old shit. (The new No Cities To Love songs sounded great, but only “A New Wave” brought the instant endorphin-rush joy-tingle that the best S-K songs have always given me.) -[Stereogum]

Here’s another set of pictures of Saturday (7/18) at Pitchfork Fest which featured sets by Sleater Kinney, New Pornographers, Ex Hex, Kurt Vile, Future Islands… and just a little rain. Even more Pitchfork coverage is here, and more of this set below…
