Happy Bon Iver Day

To coincide with sold-out shows tonight and tomorrow at Milwaukee’s Riverside Theater (and to honor Bon Iver’s immensely popular record Bon Iver), the city’s Mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed today (7/22) “Bon Iver Day.” How are you celebrating? (Besides hugging your sputtering air-conditioner and weeping along to “Holocene.”) Let us know. Also, the official Bon Iver tour kicks off today with that first Riverside show.

  1. I listened to his entire discography! Which was actually quite nice, because I’ve never listened to a single one of his albums before. And they were pretty good!

  2. I will spend the day crying because I haven’t seen Bon iver live yet. For emma was my introduction to this whole “indie” music.

  3. My uncle is seeing them live this week…not fair.

  4. I’ve spent most of the day holed up inside with only my sadness to keep my company

  5. A few years ago I went up to WI and saw the last show of the For Emma tour at the Riverside. Truly magical.

  6. How is Arkansas going to get any friggin’ culture if no one comes here and plays music at us?

  7. I guess they Michicant come to detroit… Bastards

  8. I’ll spend the day getting absurdly excited about the lone date marked by “$.”
