Alt-rock legend Beck played a career-spanning set with heavy emphasis on his most recent records. He didn't shy away from the hits, pleasing both longtime fans and casual listeners. Opening with the classic Odelay cut "Devil's Haircut", Beck and his band were possibly the tightest act of the entire day. Particularly exciting was his tribute to fellow performer Giorgio Morodor, a cover of Donna Summer's Morodor-produced hit, "I Feel Love." Beck kept the crowd excited for his entire ninety-minute headlining set with a palpable energy during "Loser" and a particularly rousing rendition of "Where It's At." [-Arielle Gordon]

Pitchfork Festival is currently on its third and final day in Chicago's Union Park. It kicked off this past Friday (7/18) and we posted pictures and wrote about that at BrooklynVegan (where the above quote is from). Here's a second set of pictures of day 1.

UPDATE: Day 2 pics are up HERE and HERE and Day 3 are HERE. Stay tuned for day 3. More day 1 pics below...
