Killed it. What a fucking show that was. Stunned.

6/7 - NHK'Koyxeи / Mark Fell - The Empty Gallery - HK
The man proved everybody wrong who thought it was going to be a borefest with absolutely no energy. They outdid themselves. Justin's voice was in tip top shape tonight for all the falsetto. The musicianship of his band is incredible! I got a bit misty eyed during the last 2 songs myself man. Thank u Bon Iver for coming hard on day 2!
I knew this was going to happen.
Is this a belated April Fools post? I get sleepy just reading the name Bon Iver.
Having seen Bon Iver Thursday night in Las Vegas this was no surprise.
EDIT: Saw some of the live performance. They did pretty well. I wouldn't say phenomenal but better than I expected. I'll be attending them anyway to secure a Radiohead spot, but now I'm looking forward to it.
Holy hell this was amazing. I was admittedly not a huge fan before but this will be one of the first two sets I re-watch monday night once I get home.

I'm laughing at the "taking a nap during Bon Iver" thread now. It got really intense at times - so glad I stayed for the whole set!
Bon Iver was my best of the day.
I knew that set would be magic, & it was. Best of the weekend so far. Rick & Andy are witnesses for my tiny freak out over "The Wolves" closing it out. I didn't watch from the spot I intended, but the sound was just fine at the spot where we ended up.
I admit that I commented, "Gee, wonder how that nap is going..." right after "Perth."
My name is Becca. Hi.
I'm going to give the minority opinion here but I did not dig Bon Iver. I have tremendous respect for his voice and his work but his live performance did not do it for me. And the crowd around me, many of which were waiting for Radiohead, were respectful but unengaged.
"Well, that's just like, you know... your opinion, man"
I watched the webcast, and even that was balls out amazing to me. I saw em at the Shrine back in September, and it's amazing to see how much they've retooled their songs since then to make it an even better show. Thank god I'm seeing them next week.
i wish i could see what people like about this band. i sat through the set but couldn't dig it at all.
I fucking hated every second of it. Nathan and I ragged on how "sensitive" he is the whole time. Plus, him going on late and ending late made Radiohead cut their set short.
And don't get me started on that god damned song where he sings auto-tuned. It was over an hour of falsetto hipster masturbation.
I can't understand how you can have so many people on stage and be so boring.
And you're right, they probably cost us a song before PA in the 2nd Radiohead encore.
I saw him at a festival a month ago and was pretty disappointed. I dig his recorded stuff but it just didn't do a whole lot for me and from what I saw of the webcast, it was a pretty similar set.
"killed it" has to be the most over used expression in music
I liked it, but it was hard to pay attention as I was getting crushed waiting for Radiohead to get on.
