Watch Bon Iver Perform “Perth/Minnesota, WI”

Sep 30th, 2012 in Music

Speaking of Bon Iver’s phenomenal concert earlier this year at the Santa Barbara Bowl, in case you missed it Bowery Presents has made available Bon Iver’s recent tour-closing (band-ceasing?) show at NYC’s Radio Music Hall.  If you don’t have time to check out the entirety, at least check out the medley of Perth and Minnesota, WI below.  As hard as it is to imagine, since our Bowl show the band continued to further perfect their sound and Justin Vernon’s falsetto, as usual, leads the way out of the darkness.  Beauty.


  • Andy–Some noises about this are being tossed off by Justin Vernon. Seems to us that bands these days, after touring for a year+ behind an album and (finally?) going on hiatus, are trying to maintain interest at the ends of their tours by threatening to disband. One would think that the core of this band (Vernon, Sean Carey) would continue on–some of the tour players (Colin Stetson, Reggie Pace, etc.) have careers of their own and might be replaced/leave.

  • absolutely gorgeous. reminds me of that amazing night at the bowl. please don’t tell me this band is splitting! they’re too good.
