Bon Iver Live at The Uptown Theatre, Kansas City, MO

I’m late posting these videos, as work, etc. has been pretty hectic and my blogging has slowed. I apologize and hope these videos will help to make up for my semi-hiatus.

Justin Vernon brought the beefed up sound of Bon Iver to town a few weeks ago and he didn’t disappoint. His vocal range was astoundingly vast and his band was spectacular. At the risk of blaspheming my all time favorite album, their jazzy sound evoked the ghosts of Astral Weeks, in a haunting and beautiful way.

I’m sure a month or so from now when the new iPhone drops, cellphone video coverage will be outstanding. But alas, these were not captured with such a device, so the video isn’t great, but I think you’ll enjoy the audio (and light show) at least.
