Bon Iver - Hamburg Germany - 2008-09-26

I was wondering what to post the other day and I realized I have not seen any Bon Iver shows available for download anywhere. Last winter I was at Schuba's in Chicago for a Redwalls show. They had 2 openers I had never heard of, Bon Iver and Illinois. Illinois could be good if they wanted to, they need to lose the songs about smoking bowls though. But Bon Iver was f*ckin on that night. Justin Vernon's spooky vocals against their sparse, quietly distorted and feedback laden music was just perfect and it honest to God brought thoughts of camping in the woods of Northern Wisconsin. Well, the next day I find out Bon Iver's record was recorded about 2 hours South of those camping memories. During the set, I turned around and saw a friend from high school, gave him a nod, and he came up to me and told me his cousin is the other guitarist in the band. Kind of cool.

Anyways, this is an FM broadcast of a show they played in Hamburg. Enjoy!
