Bon Iver

Tickets to the two just-added Bon Iver Radio City Music Hall shows (9/21 and 9/22) go on presale this morning (6/28) at 10AM. (Password: "Holocene") Good luck. Regular on-sale starts Friday (6/29) at 10AM.

In other news, you may or may not have been aware that Justin Vernon designed his own line of shoes. LA Times recently took the time to review the shoe. Here's what they had to say:

And then there's the bone. Yes, the fish bone that covers the entire toe, and makes it look as though you're a messy grizzly bear without the manners or wherewithal to clean up after yourself. Who, it must be asked, walks around with fishbones on their toes? Fishermen? No right-minded man would take a single step without kicking that carcass back into the lake.

But, then, no right-minded man would go fishing in these, not even to get from the parking lot to the boat. They're salmon, and they'll get dirty. So you wear them when you drive into town on Saturday night. Perhaps, but, well, there are fish carcasses on your feet, and the minute you march into the bar you'll be pegged as a folkie by the cowboy-booted drunks.

Vernon, who is currently working on a new style of galoshes that he believes will add "a little pizazz" to morning wades through Wisconsin mud, should be admired for his first attempt at a shoe -- even if they're nowhere near as experimental as No Age's Ed Templeton-designed sneakers for Emerica. And set alongside Kanye West's new NIke Air Yeezy 2, which came out on Saturday, well, the differences are obvious. West's are brash. Vernon's are pink.

I'd rather stab myself in the leg with an icepick than listen to Bon Iver.

This has been the biggest bag of bullshit, the guy has plenty of shitty seats in his personal on sale, then in the internet presale there were 2 tickets available to each show.

I hope you realize that AA-ZZ and A-C are in front of you. That makes you 30th row. Congratulations on being far away.

Seriously, I understand why people would listen to his music, but wouldn't you be bored to tears actually seeing this guy perform live?

wasn't this the douche who called out a mother for crying because her son won an award that meant something to him? and then he praised jay z kanye blue ivory and beyonce? and ended his rant with what would bill hicks think?
