As Pitchfork began to hit its stride in Day 2, it really became about the communal experience as much as the music. (I'm guessing because I wasn't there, but I did attend the first Pitchfork in 2006, with Silver Jews, Yo La Tengo, and Os Mutantes, so I'm not totally shooting in the dark.)
Perhaps that's why Francis Chung's photography highlighted lots of fandom on this day. My good friend caught plenty of people have a good time in the summer Chicago heat.
These two photos on the right are my favorites. You've got maniacal fandom in one and content overpriced-beer-buyer in the other.
Check out all his Day 2 photos here, my blog post about Day 1 here, and I'll be back soon with a Day 3 photog report.
