Bon Iver / Frank Ocean @ Angel Orensanz 9/24/2012
Bon Iver
Frank Ocean

Following their respective Radio City and ATP NY appearances, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean played the intimate, ornate LES space Angel Orensanz last night (9/24), a surprise RSVP-only affair presented by Vitamin Water/Fader. The lines for the show wrapped around the block and only a fraction of people who RSVPed actually got in, but those who did were treated to hour-long sets from both performers.

Bon Iver is taking a break from touring for a while after nearly two years of constant activity, but recent reports of his retirement appear to be greatly exaggerated. We previously posted a picture Frank Ocean's setlist. More pictures from the show, below...

ATP Day 2?
ATP Day 3?

And no butt hurt bitching from the troll on the other thread? Ever again?

Oh for christ's sake, the sad tool from the earlier thread has moved over to this one as 11:44. His life is crumbling down cause BV is not covering the lame ATP fests day 2 and 3. He has no where to post about how amazing he thought the show was. Now his experience of it has diminshed because of this.

GET A FUCKING LIFE YOU LOSER

lol. By the way, who is Miss Info? Is she a celebrity I should know about?

ps For you hipsters who went to go see this instead of Grizzly Bear...shame on you!

You should probably take your own advice, 11:48. Seeing as how you're both all over that other thread. Being that you thought the ATP festival was so lame, you really seem to care about it A LOT.

11:49, pretty sure there were just as many hipsters at Grizzly Bear.

Frank Ocean might be the most overrated artist of this year....I don't get the hype. Seriously people?

12:07 I think it's because he's gay and Black...a rare combo.

1210 yea rare combo if you're from the midwest dummie! His music is overrated and just by looking at his fan base (from terminal 5 pics), you can tell the music is made for high school girls.

At ATP Frank's set reminded me of that old Ed Sullivan footage of the Beatles performances. Lots of screaming from 14 year old girls.

Wear a headband--straight to the front of the line.

LOL@12:25

Every struggling musician on this site as well as basically every musician in existence would kill and die for that "high school girl" fanbase, whether or not they want to admit it. Would you prefer a fanbase that was middle aged men?

"I would totally hate it if my fanbase was made up of rabid women fans who run out to actually purchase my music and tickets to my shows, i'd much rather have the credibility lended to me by two or three trolls in the BV comments section!"

Idiot.

I don't get Bon Iver? Pls someone explain.

^ It's a sort of pun on "good winter" in French. Get it now?

shame that frank and bon iver didn't perform onstage together; seemed like such an open opportunity. was excited for the possibility of that.

i'm also wondering if frank chose not to do bad religion because of the venue - too on the nose?

yet to meet anyone who actually likes these two performers;yet folks claim they do because it's hip
