Rumours. Kerplunk. Milo Goes To College. When people talk about the all-time best shows they’ve ever attended, it’s always when a band was playing all the great songs off “that really great album they just released.” It happens once, maybe twice in the lifetime of most bands. The album may not even have become iconic yet, but often times can be predicted by those who’ve got young ears willing to listen. Hamilton Leithauser, the former frontman of The Walkmen, will no doubt be promoting his fantastic 2016 album I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, which is a reason to go to this year’s Pitchfork Festival on Sunday in itself. Joined with former Vampire Weekend-er Rostam Batmanglij, Leithauser will bring every attendee to their tattooed knees with great songs such as “1000 Times” and “In A Black Out.” This guy is so good, he should be closing out the festival.
