Bon Iver perform “Beth/Rest” and “Holocene” on Saturday Night Live (Video)
Bon Iver just made their debut appearance on Saturday Night Live tonight with a performance of “Beth/Rest” and “Holocene”. The folk-band, led by Justin Vernon, are up for a couple Grammy’s this year following the release of their self-titled second album. Just yesterday, Bon Iver turned down a performance at the Grammy’s after being told they would have to collaborate with someone else instead of being able to play their own music. Personally, I wish them the best of luck next Sunday. The Grammy’s are fools to turn down a re-enactment of tonight’s SNL performance. If you ever have the opportunity to see the group live, preferably in a non-music festival setting, then make sure to go. Find a way. If you have to rob someone, sell your retirement, give blood or whatever…just do it.
