Bon Iver @ Riverside Theater, Milwaukee 7/22/11

Yesterday was Bon Iver Day in Milwaukee and a couple of thousand folks in the city were lucky enough to celebrate with Justin Vernon himself at his band’s tour kickoff at Riverside Theater. The set included the live debut of every song from his acclaimed new (age) LP2 — save “Lisbon, OH” — and there was even a new cover debuted during the encore: Björk’s “Who Is It (Carry My Joy On The Left, Carry My Pain On The Right),” from 2004′s Medúlla.

  1. That setlist is to die for

  2. Not everything he touches turns to gold, guys. This was a disorganized badgering of that song, even if the intentions were good.

  3. the awkward standing around that prevails at bon iver concerts really hit a new low during that bjork cover
