So a couple weeks ago or so Jon told me that Justin Vernon, a kid who was just ahead of us in high school, had a song on "House" with his new band Bon Iver.

I had forgotten about it up until yesterday when I did a little digging to find out which scene. As it turns out it's pretty much THE "House" scene to date. (Not to mention at the very least the culmination of a 2 part season finale.) Not a bad "get" as far as shows and scenes go.

It's the first song. [Spoiler Alert]


Also, it turns out that it's not a "band" per se. This is really his first solo album that he recorded at a cabin up north after some setbacks and an illness. Also, according to Craig, Bon Iver couldn't BE any bigger amongst the Indie music crowd.

Within the last couple days they were also on Conan.



Go Eau Claire!! Congratulations, Justin.

What other bands was he in in high school? Seems a few come to mind, but I'm not sure.

It's the ending of the second half of the finale from last season (post writers strike)

You can get the episodes here:

Though the mystery part of it is now ruined, it should still be a good watch.

I saw them on Conan the other night, but I couldn't understand a word they were singing.

From what I've heard, the Europeans enjoy Bon Iver too.
Then again, maybe it's just the indie music europeans.

I've watched the clips I posted a couple times each and listened to the album a few times now. I've yet to make out one word.

Bon Iver is the featured artist on myspace. I went there to play mobsters, and there they are.

I assume this will change to a new band at some point, but it looks like you'd be able to get to Bon Iver with the links at the bottom.

In the first interview he talks about Eau Claire and Mount Vernon.

I just went to myspace.com and there they were. Might be on a cycle, like you say.

Bon Iver had a song on Chuck the other night. It was during Chuck's big speech/end of the episode, if you were watching.
