Saturday’s best moment at Pitchfork Music Festival was not provided by any performing artist. Under 5-ft. tall with braces and a Supreme hat, a kid who appeared much younger than all the others stood alone in front of me along the photographer’s fence during Danny Brown’s set. He hopped up frantically on the metal stage barrier, waving his hands and trying to signal the attention of someone backstage. I thought it could be a parent, until he turned and asked how much I wanted for my VIP badge.
