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?
