Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, 7/19/08 

Day 2 started out raining, then out came the sun and the humidity. Jarvis Cocker worked the big festival stage, No Age threw a dance party on a smaller stage and the Hold Steady "stayed positive" during its set. Along the way there were mud dancers and more than a few fashion Do's and Don'ts. Photos by Keegan Hamilton and Nick Lucchesi.
