So last night was my first time attending the Pitchfork Festival and my interest was purely in Bjork.
Unfortunately, about an hour into her performance, including “Thunderbolt” appropriately enough – they called the festival for the day because of an impending thunderstorm (which did break from the heavens minutes after we got on a bus). Bjork summoned the lightening and hence it came.
She was decked out in some weird head piece that was like an explosion between cellophane wands and Pinhead from Hellraiser:
While still promoting the mostly dull ‘Biophilia’ album with it’s lack of melodies and structure, the other songs were truly brought to life and I was very pleased with “Army of Me” and the new rendition of “One Day” from ‘Debut.’
The video below (from the previous Volta tour) just kind of shows you the energy/vibe she puts on when doing the bangers:
The choir she has support her is amazing.
