bonlewisOkay after surviving a 21-hour drive from Texas to Utah, I am reconnected. To the internet. Anyway, last night Bon Iver and Jenny Lewis played a free show in downtown Salt Lake City as part of the city’s amazing “Twilight Concert Series”.  Let me just say, the ability to see both of these bands for free, is, to say the least, incredible. And their performances!

Jenny Lewis played first. She was so great! I never grew to love Acid Tongue probably because it’s not enough like Rabbit Fur Coat which I have a pretty strong attachment to. She played an even amount of material from both discs, and even a couple of new songs. We haven’t heard the last of her!

I was afraid Bon Iver’s performance would be lost to a milling, mildly-interested crowd of people lured in by the “free” part of the night. There were a lot of rowdy suspects, but overall his music was capable of captivating the huge crowd packed into a small park in downtown Salt Lake. Here’s a video of him playing “Skinny Love,” which was a crowd-pleaser.

I might have some pictures up later, not a lot but just a few.
