In addition to bringing you concert footage of indie bands, SheKnows captures the spirit of the entire affair.

While bands such as Caribou, Icy Demons, Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend, M.Ward, Spiritualized and Dinosaur Jr. rocked their sets, SheKnows was right there getting in-depth interviews with members of Elf Power, A Hawk and A Hacksaw and Boris.

Up front and live, SheKnows is ready to set our readers on the right track with artists you may already love or want to love soon enough. In the last four years, Pitchfork has grown to become a Mecca for music fans seeking the alternative to alternative.

For those underground hip-hop fans, we caught Ghostface Killah and Raekwon cracking a smile, and last but not least, a SheKnows on-site recap of Sunday’s headliner, Spoon.

Stay tuned for more Pitchfork coverage throughout the week and don’t forget, SheKnows loves music!

Chicago is home to some of music’s finest and the Pitchfork Music Festival exemplified that fact. From Smashing Pumkins to Styx, Chi-town knows how to rock.
