Belle & Sebastian’s Dance Party, Breeders Do ‘Last Splash’ – Pitchfork Day 2 in Photos

Belle & Sebastian

Belle & Sebastian are notorious for boring shows. Sleepy. Aloof. Blah. I was worried about them as a festival headlining act. But the twee pop band from Glasgow, Scotland annihilated the crowd during their Saturday headlining performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival.Frontman Stuart Murdoch invited fans up onstage to dance during “Boy With the Arab Strap.”

This was no quaint and quiet affair.  With 12 musicians onstage including the usual guitar, bass, drums – plus violin, cello, trumpet, flute, keyboards and more. It was nothing but sleepy. It was an energy drink of animal magnetism. Blindsiding and brilliant. More pics of everyone who played below.
