Day two. Hotter, more crowded. Though it feels lightly attended until the half-way point. This is one of the few days in Pitchfork's last few years to not sell out. Chalk that up to the slate of acts. Some blow us away. Some drift away from our memories with a slight breeze. One has copious amounts of saxophone.

Check out reviews and photo galleries of all the acts:
