Bon Iver
with Hiss Golden Messenger
Brought to you by ACL Live & C3 Presents

Ever since the door swung shut on that north woods cabin, we all felt like Justin entered a future we had imagined as kids. It was an obsessive, simple dream we shared as teenagers growing up in Wisconsin: just music, always. For me that started with Justin asking: "Trev, wanna be in a band?" as we passed each other in the hallway in front of our high school's trophy case.

Many of us moved to North Carolina, I was on the other side of the ocean. For a few years I only heard small vignettes of my friends' new life down south. And then my heart split when I heard that Justin was leaving North Carolina to return to Wisconsin. I watched from afar as my friends began to tear apart. What could have happened? I felt helpless. And then For Emma, Forever Ago emerged. When I read the album title, my heart sank again. My reaction was more worry than anything. I knew Justin's recourse to isolation and the past, almost a crippling nostalgia that prevented him from moving onward. This title was a beacon looking back.
