Phoebe Bridgers Closed Out The First Night Of Pitchfork Fest On A Mostly Solemn Note

Friday marked the return of Pitchfork Music Festival to Chicago’s Union Park for the first time since July 2019. The fest’s COVID-era comeback offered lots of compelling options on the first day, starting with some dystopian rap (Armand Hammer) and rocket-fueled emo (Dogleg) that I would’ve liked to see if my flight hadn’t been pushed back. Among the acts I actually did witness in part, there were fiercely howled anthems from Hop Along, cantankerous prog-rock bombardments from black midi, and re...

"The pay was 9 pounds — about $17. With two young children to feed, she showed up at 8:30 p.m. to tune her harp and was handed a piece of sheet music."

Only later did she learn that the notes she played were to be the intro on 'She’s Leaving Home' by the Beatles.... Mrs. Bromberg’s harp intro and rhythm, backed by a full string section, set the poignant tone of the track before Paul McCartney (who recorded separately) began the lyric 'Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock as the day begins.'...  She played harp on two early James Bond films starring Sean Connery — 'Dr. No' (1962) and 'Goldfinger' (1964)...
