Justin Vernon & My Morning Jacket before the Grammys (by dariusjagjag)
Grammys

Someone from Jagjaguwar tweeted the above picture not long before Justin Vernon shouted out "Jagjaguwar" to end his acceptance speech at the Grammys pre-show this evening (2/12).

Bon Iver won "Best Alternative Music Album", beating out Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Foster the People & Death Cab Cab For Cutie. Other pre-telecast winners include Adele, Foo Fighters (who beat Mastodon, The Decemberists and TV on the Radio), Skrillex (who won three already and beat Cut Copy, Robyn, Deadmau5 and others), Kanye West (who also won three already), The Civil Wars (who won two already and beat Fleet Foxes), Levon Helm, Alison Krauss, Tinariwen, Louis CK, Cee-Lo, and Booker T Jones who won "Best Pop Instrumental Album" for the 2nd time, and nervously thanked Biz Markie, Questlove, Gabriel Roth (of Daptone Records), Matt Berninger (of the National), and Lou Reed.

Arcade Fire also won another Grammy already (for Best Recording Package).

A Numero Group Syl Johnson release was up for two Grammys but lost in both categories.

And that was just all the stuff they don't show on TV. The regular show with all the big awards (and possibly more for Bon Iver) starts at 8pm EST, Whitney Houston tribute included.

UPDATES:
* Jack Black makes "indie cred" joke that includes "Bon Iver" while introducing Foo Fighters
* Denise from PS22 in Adele commercial

Remember when Bon Iver played your CMJ show at Bowery a few years back and the only people in the audience was me, the Rosebuds, a bouncer, and a mosquito? Damn.

There are only two things I'll be watching for tonight ...
(1) Who will get the first interview with Liz Phair to hear her take on all this
(2) That Lulu wins Best Album

Why Foo Fighters keep winning awards is beyond me. They're OK, but really not "epic" and I feel for all you poor douchenoses that get all wet over them and MMj. You guys should have been around in the 70s when rock was rock and parents were nervous.

of course he still went, he just said he didn't want to perform with those other non hipster artists because he is above them.

Brian Wilson is embarrassing. They should not play as The Beach Boys. Brian Wilson is too brain damaged to perform.
