{Bon Iver Concert: Dallas}

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

There is only one word to describe the Bon Iver concert Monday night: MAGICAL! It was held at the new Winspear Opera House downtown which could quite possibly be my new favorite music venue OF ALL TIME. Isn't it bootyful?


Our 2nd row tickets were incredible. Pretty sure they left us wide eyed and speechless for 3 hours.


Justin's girlfriend Kathleen Edwards did an amazing job opening the show. I fell in love with her the minute she sang a song she wrote back in high school called, "Mercury." (You can listen to it here).



I know the quality isn't that great, but here's a video I took on my iPhone of Justin singing my favorite Bon Iver song. NOTE: Re: Stacks currently has 1,023 plays in my iTunes. I. need. help.


We also had the opportunity to meet a sweet couple who reads our blog. Emily & her boyfriend Josh are from Louisiana and have a blog here if you'd like to check it out. Em's a 2nd year PA student and had a 3 hour drive home after the show! The crazy things music will do to the soul ...

Any word on how the Bon Iver show in Austin was last night?
XOXO

Oh my word, I think I am getting a bit of the green eyed monster. That is SO LUCKY that you were able to go to the concert! He is performing in Milwaukee soon, but I now live 6 hours away, which is just too far for a college student. I guess I have to enjoy the albums for now.

My husband and I went too- great concert! A bit jealous with the second row tickets. :) I remember reading in a post the other day that y'all are planning to go camping soon... any suggestions on favorite places outside Dallas? We're new to the area, and want some good camping spots!

I went to this show as well and even a week later, I can.not.stop. thinking about it! So dang good. P.S. Friends and I ate at Screen Door beforehand - three-course meal for $35 - which was a dream!
