A weekend of Chicago concerts and festivals that saw performers such as R. Kelly, A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock, Diana Ross among others touch the stage, was capped off by an incredible performance by Solange at the Pitchfork Music Festival.
Solange’s show was an exercise in modern art, where she blended creative movement with the music showing off her choreography skills in conjunction with her singing talents. To that end, Solange’s creative collective “Saint Heron” hosted a series of pop up shops and workshops throughout the city at places like the SoHo House to give the community a peek into her artistic aesthetic.
As for the set, Solange wasted no time diving into hits like “Cranes In The Sky” and “Mad” but delighted fans by reaching deeper into her catalog of hits with songs like “Some Things Never Seem To Work,” and Tony,” among others.
ChiStepper’s intention was to also make it to Ken Bedford’s Steppers picnic but unfortunately time didn’t permit both to happen, so Solange it was. Overall, a great weekend for Chicago music lovers.
