how freaking much I enjoyed the Bon Iver show last night? To be honest, I was completely skeptical of the newest album release because For Emma, Forever Ago holds a special (and very tender) place in my heart. After months of swaying on decisions, I finally gave the newest album a go and was surprised by what I heard.
Last night validated my love for all things awesome. Justin Vernon’s voice was on point (per usual) and his band? Oh my holy crap. His BAND was the show stopper. Horns, drums, sax and chimes. It was like bacon came to life, learned to play guitar and put on a concert in the most beautiful opera house in Dallas.
I digress, I was a giddy school girl. Nothing was more exciting than getting to finally experience “Re: Stacks”, “For Emma” and “Skinny Love” in person.
Just talking about it makes my stomach fill with butterflies. Hot damn!
Below is a video of a similar performance earlier this year. Although, it doesn’t do last night justice.
