On August 3rd I went to the Bon Iver concert with my friend Amy V. The concert was shorter than I had hoped (anything less than 3 hours of music would have been “shorter than I had hoped”…everything is relative), but it was so rich. One of my favorite concerts. I (among millions of other people on the planet) admire, am amazed by, & cherish Justin Vernon’s exceptional songwriting. “For Emma, Forever Ago” has gotten me through some really hard times this year. Whenever an album is kind of the soundtrack of your life for an important time, it becomes so dear. Bon Iver holds a special place inside me. And here’s a highlight from the concert: Justin performing one of my favorites, “Re: Stacks” solo. I was sitting behind the person who took these videos of the concert. I’m so glad I found them on YouTube.
