So after this, Bon Iver pretty much has a first subheadlining spot next year. (http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?50663-2012-Grammy-Nominations/page2)
Yep.

Bon Iver single-handedly convinced me to buy a week two ticket today. I CAN'T NOT SEE BON IVER AT COACHELLA. EVER.

FWIW my local radio station reported that Bon Iver will be on the Main Stage (no big surprise.) I assume the station got a press release from the band.

I saw them twice in a row this tour (won tickets to the second date), and even with how stacked Saturday is it's going to be tough to skip them. One of the best shows I saw all year.

Yeah I have seen them in an Opera Theatre in Dallas but the Polo Fields will be different

I enjoy Bon Iver, but they've been a pricey act even before they got real popular. I'm not sure how great their music would translate at a place like Coachella, but it'd be nice to finally see them live. Hmm.

Hard to know how a band you haven't seen live would translate at all to anything anywhere, to be fair.

Haha no but I've seen him a number of times in different bands in clubs, theaters, and outdoors over the last few years.

They are simply beautiful live. I know they've gotten backlash recently because they've gotten big, but their show at the Greek this past year was gorgeous. I think the Coachella set is going to be fantastic.

They're essentially the show playing right after the Superbowl.

They'll be amazing. It's one of those shows where you just listen and let the beauty of the music empower your body and soul.

Anyone concerned with Bon Iver in a large outdoor setting can rest easy. I've seen them twice outdoors and they know how to fill that space well. Don't miss it.

The following is from The Currents local music blog (http://blog.thecurrent.org/post/2012/01/bon-iver-collaborates-chieftains):

Last week, Vernon announced that he would be launching a new record label, Chigliak (yes, that's a Northern Exposure reference), under the umbrella of Jagjaguwar, and plans to use the imprint to re-issue underappreciated and out-of-print gems -- including records from Minneapolis cult favorites 12 Rods and Eau Claire's Amateur Love. We also learned that Bon Iver will be performing on Saturday Night Live on February 4, and will be collaborating with the Flaming Lips for a special Record Store Day release that will also feature Nick Cave, Yoko Ono, and Edward Sharpe.

Oh, and just to throw a cherry on top of that busy week, he was also nominated for two BRIT Awards: one for International Male Solo Artist alongside Ryan Adams and Bruno Mars, and one for International Breakthrough Act with Nicki Minaj and Foster the People. The BRIT Awards show airs on February 21.

Sold after the SNL appearance. My only fear is that the possibility of drunken bros yelling back and forth to each other about how drunk they are is pretty high given their likely time slot and recent cache with SNL and the Grammys.

If you google "grammy new artist criteria" you'll find all kinds of interesting articles that will shed some light on the subject. They tweaked the rules after GaGa was determined to be ineligible because she had a previous nomination for a single dance track. They also tweaked the rules after Whitney Houston was ineligible because she had sung back-up vocals on a nominated album. They imposed a 3 album max because Shelby Lynne won new artist after her eighth album. They have to have some criteria for establishing "new" and they basically just make it up. A lot of it has to do with not being nominated before.

Bonny Bear sounds like an adorable animated character who roams about the forrest making music with the birds and his band of merry animals, and teaches kids about artistic integrity.

Someone with far better art skills than I, make this happen! Don't forget to draw him with that adorably dorky brown jacket & fluffy tufts of hair on his head!
