Bon Iver Live at the Shrine Auditorium

Last night I went to the Shrine Auditorium, Downtown Los Angeles to see Bon Iver with my friend Vincent. I wasn't really sure what to except from this kind of show, his music is definitely mellow so I wasn't really getting "pumped" for the show. I heard the venue was beautiful, but it was AMAZING the ceiling and chandelier were beautiful. The acoustics in auditorium are great, you could hear every instrument being played. Other Lives opened the show, I have heard of them before so I was stoked that I got to see their set. Although, I was late, (parking was difficult) but I got hear my favorite song Dust Bowl. That was just a taste of the great sounds we would be hearing. Shortly after Bon Iver came on and OH MY GOODNESS what an amazing band (consists of 9 musicians, and a billion different instruments). Justin Vernon's voice is seriously something I have never heard of before. The range he has is breath taking. I am happy that I finally get to cross Bon Iver off my list of bands I MUST see.
