As the sun cracked up over the California horizon Sunday morning, I lay cuddled under a warm blanket a few states over, but amidst the palm trees and the eerie fog, my friend Dainon sent me a cell phone snap and then stood in the grey morning light filming this opening number in a Hollywood cemetery:
I’ve been watching every video I can find of Bon Iver‘s sunrise show, which surely was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I can’t think of an artist I’d rather hear while wrapped in a sleeping bag, sleepily smiling through thick fog as the sky turned pink (watch the rosy color change from the beginning to end of “Skinny Love”). It’s enough to give me all kinds of chills.
Dainon ends his review with recounting:
“How about we do this all again sometime?” Justin says, pausing. After some thought, he follows with: “No, how about we never do it again? How about that?” If he sealed his band’s fate with those words, you know? That’ll do.
EDIT: This is magical, especially the end.
