There is no doubt that Bon Iver is an extremely powerful, moving artist: I would not hesitate to say that he makes some of the most moving music I have ever listened to.
He will be at Chicago’s Chicago Theater on July 24th and I am lucky enough to have third row tickets. I have never seen him live before but I have not been this excited to see a live act in quite some time.
I was out tonight and got tweeted at, and while I checked twitter on my phone I saw Bon Iver’s tweet about performing “Calgary” on the Colbert Report.
I called my lil sis and told her to record it, and I have to say that it was far better live than I had even expected it.
This is a video of Bon Iver performing “Skinny Love” off of For Emma, Forever Ago. A truly incredible performance, Justin Vernon’s voice is as unique, amazing, and atypical as Neil Young’s.
His guitar is nuts too, really cool. Looks like a steel frame but sounds acoustic.
CANNOT WAIT FOR JULY 24TH GOT DAMN

Stephen Colbert raps “Empire State of Mind” with Alicia Keys, as she sings her Part 2 version. Seriously, this is amazing. Thank you for making me crack up, Colbert.
