Nicolas Jaar at the Ray-Ban X Boiler Room Official Pitchfork Festival Afterparty: July 20

image

   An amazing set spoiled by surged breakers; the power to Nicolas Jaar’s equipment, amps and sound, plus two projectors blew three times during Jaar’s hour long set at the Ray-Ban X Boiler Room Official Pitchfork Festival Afterparty. Jaar was visibly frustrated and seemed to remove his computer much later in his set after muttering something about, “having to play from his iTunes” internally upset after the last outage. Rumors abounded about Jaar canceling another appearance later on at Primary due to computer issues, but I doubt that Jaar would devalue a quote-unquote ‘Exclusive’ performance… whatever that means. Still, the music was fantastic, albeit interrupted. Photos by yours truly Michael Egon Schiele and polaroids by the wonderful Talley Phillippe-McLain. Make sure you scope out Jacques Greene in the second polaroid on-deck. Le Memé!
