Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon took the stage at the Horizon Events Center in Clive on Friday night. He delivered a nine-song acoustic set that included Bon Iver favorites like “Flume”, “Blood Bank”, and “For Emma” in addition to covers of Bon Dylan and Leon Russell.
Meanwhile, Vampire Weekend’s “Bernie Caucus Concert” took place at the US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids on Saturday. Following a lively speech from Sanders, Ezra Koenig led his band through a 15-song set that kicked off with “Harmony Hall” and also included “Unbelivers”, “Sunflower”, “Diane Young”, and “2021”. To close the show, VW covered Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town” before segueing into “A-Punk”.
Watch footage from both concerts below.
On February 10th, The Strokes will hit the campaign trail on behalf of Sanders as they’ll play a rally taking place at the Whittemore Center Arena in Durham, New Hampshire.
