  1. I’m excited to see Bon Iver, who are supposed to put on an emotionally charged show with amazing vocals.

    Check out “Skinny Love,” for an example of the first album’s acoustic singalong feel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrMmr1oMPGA

    “Holocene” provides an example of the more electronic-based sound of Bon Iver’s eponymous album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWcyIpul8OE

    • Great stuff Scott, thanks. I’m hoping that they play on a smaller, enclosed stage so that the acoustics are tight.
