with one comment

Bon Iver @ Bonnaroo 2009

Bon Iver is back after quite a lengthy hiatus where members, leadman Justin Vernon in particular, collaborated with others as well as working on solo stuff. Most notably, Vernon contributed to Kanye West’s most recent album and even performed with him at Coachella. He/they will release their sophomore album, Bon Iver Bon Iver on June 21st via JagjaguwarAccording to our friend Mark at YVYNYL, the album is “quite good, but challenging for sure.” Hmm…I guess we’ll have to wait and see what he means. Until then, check out a short snippet of a new song below.

So far only a few dates have been announced including a show at the Tower Theatre on Wednesday, August 3rd. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, May 13th. You’ll be able to find them HERE.

leave a comment »

Kurt Vile & the Violators played the World Cafe Live last night opening up for J Mascis. We weren’t there, but a Youtuber was so their video is below. If you missed the show, don’t fret cause he will be back in the summer. He’s playing the First Unitarian Church on  Sunday, June 12th with Pissed Jeans. Tickets are not on sale yet, but the NYC show at Bowery Ballroom is the day before this one and goes on sale April 1st. So the Philly show should be on sale around then. Either way, we’ll post a link when they do. UPDATE: Tickets for the show can be found HERE.

Also he was in Austin last week for SXSW, where he played a bunch of shows and got his equipment stolen. Videos of a SXSW show and Kurt explaining what happened are below too.

All tour dates and videos below…
