So as Michaela’s guest post said, this past weekend I was at the first Pitchfork Music Festival Paris. (And no, nothing incredible or life changing happened, sorry Mic.) It was a great weekend with many incredibly talented musicians and I was pretty fortunate to have this as the ending to my last days in Paris.
The highlight was, of course, Saturday night with the curator and headliner of the concert, Bon Iver. I got there early (in order to see the earlier acts) as well as to snag a spot at the front for Bon Iver. I left the spot once (bathroom)—I guess front space at festivals can be pretty cut-throat which I learned as I was gradually moved from the front row to the second. Still, I had an incredible vantage and one that I’m not likely to get again. (However I am fortunate enough to be seeing Bon Iver again in Chicago in December.)
A few pictures from the weekend (sorry my camera was not feeling the lighting at these shows)!
Jens Lekman—I highly suggest checking him out! He’s pretty dang funny.
And, to give you all a little hint as to my Halloween costume (yeah I dressed up—pictures tomorrow) here’s a photo taken from the Pitchfork Paris Facebook album (thanks Jack!). Can you spot me? (Hint: You can’t see my full face but I’m there!)
