Bon Iver

Bon Iver (Justin Vernon), with three-piece band, returned to Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn Friday night (12/12). It was his third NYC show in three days, and his last NYC show of 2008 according to what he told the crowd. He also said he was excited to almost be done touring so he can spend some time at home getting back down to earth after a crazy (sucessful) year.

Their set included two new songs, one of which was played during the one-song encore, and a cover of The Outfield‘s “Your Love” – a song he said he knew the bloggers would love. He was right. Actually I think everyone in attendance loved it, along with the whole show, though the highlight had to be the powerful crowd-sing-a-long to “The Wolves (Act I & II)“.

Justin at one point lovingly and modestly joked, “How about that Tallest Man On Earth? I’m not sure why we decided to bring him on tour” (or something like that). He was referring to the Dylanesque opener, that was, as he pointed out, solid (though sometimes hard to hear over people talking).

“What is shocking about this is the fact that this man (who is of average height) seems to understand American folk music better than any other performer today is from Sweden.” [Tone Marrow Reviews]
