fuckedup@andlaurasays Although I only witnessed the last twenty minutes of Fucked Up’s Saturday afternoon set, it was one of the most memorable moments of the festival. I am not going to pretend that I know more than what Wikipedia says about this band, so here’s a short description of what I saw.

Imagine the sweatiest, hairiest (with the exception of his head), angriest looking guy you’ve ever seen. He’s screaming into a microphone with a badass band backing him up. Now he’s put in front of a crowd of very sweaty hipsters pushing each other down like bowling pins. And his name is Pink Eyes.

Pink Eyes is sweating buckets. He’s spitting and swearing and diving into the audience headfirst. Someone throws him a baby doll. He holds it up for everyone to see and proceeds to tear apart the doll, limb by limb, as the people in the pit start throwing around bits of baby into the air. If that’s not hardcore as hell, I don’t know what is.

@ZackTeibloom Pink Eyes and Fucked Up were the Les Savy Fav of Pitchfork this year. A fat, bald hairy guy who’s penchance for being shirtless and wildly out of control overshadowed the music. I had the pleasure of watching the beginning of this Fucked Up set online. I turned it on as Pink Eyes ripped a beach ball apart with his mouth and wore it on his head like a hat.

He slowly took off his shirt (though I wouldn’t say it was seductive) as he told us we could now see that he was fat. Wasn’t much mystery there, bud. Much like Les Savy Fav, I’m not sure I’d ever listen to them, but I’m always down to watch them.
