Listen Up: Best of Pitchfork Music Festival '09

Over the weekend, I had the chance to attend the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Now in its fourth year, this year's festival featured 40 artists playing on three stages in the city's Union Park. It was my first time at the festival, and overall, it felt like a smaller and more manageable Lollapalooza, with fewer scheduling conflicts and more chances to see artists I really wanted to see.

And oh, there were plenty of artists I wanted to see. The lineups — featuring The National, Yo La Tengo, the Flaming Lips, Built to Spill, and more — kept things rocking for the better part of three days. Highlights for me included Final Fantasy, just a guy and his violin captivating the crowd; the booming brass sounds of Beirut; a sing-along from the punk-country Dutchess and the Duke; and a credible crowd-surfing attempt from the lead singer of The National.

After the jump, I've picked out a few favorite songs from the artists who made the festival memorable for me. Want to check it out? Just
