Playful, elegant, and not above the judicious use of the word “shit."

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver

This is one of my favorite new acts in recent years (I wrote about him here), and I was lucky enough that I got to stand just a few feet away and take photos. Totally unpretentious and down to earth, and he sounded even better live. At the end of his set he told the crowd that he was only allowed to sell one piece of merchandise at the festival, so he brought sweatshirts. From Wisconsin. I don’t know why, but I find that weirdly adorable.
