Bon Iver “gatherings” happened with newspapers & a boombox (but no live music)

UPDATE: You can now hear the album.

Yesterday, Bon Iver posted an Instagram that suggested something would be happening in Justin Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, WI at 6:30 PM, and then more events would follow today (9/29) in select cities around the world. At the Eau Claire one, newspapers hit the racks with artwork related to Bon Iver’s new album 22, A Million, which comes out this Friday (9/30). The album was also playing on cassette in a boombox.
