It’s been a busy week for Justin Vernon and his ever-increasing band. His album came out in the US on Tuesday so he had to get some tv appearances in. On release day, he brought the wonderful ‘Holocene’ one of the standout tracks from his second album Bon Iver, Bon Iver to Jimmy Fallon’s live show, where he played some covers last month. There’s only eight in the band for that performance, down a few hundred it seems, from the day previous, when Justin chatted to one of my heroes, Stephen Colbert, and Bon Iver performed the first single ‘Calgary’. Both videos are more than worthy of your time. Bon Iver, Bon Iver came out in Ireland last Friday and his show at the Grand Canal Theatre later in the year is sold out. I have everything crosses that a second date will be announced.
