Dear Bon Iver

Thank you for your excellence in musicianship, and the thousands of hours you put into getting there.

Thank you for playing and singing with passion.

Thank you for basking in the glory of music.

Thank you for leaving behind friends and family for a time and spending untold hours on the road, constantly setting up and tearing down, constantly in motion, often unsettled, all so you can share your excellence and passion and creativity with us live.

Thank you for a great show that was well worth the effort of finding a late-night babysitter. I left happier.

If you haven’t yet heard of Bon Iver, do yourself a kind turn, and go watch some YouTube videos (Skinny Love was the best song of the night – I love it live).
