Volcano Choir at the Fonda

1604410_611580602242584_521230707_nVolcano Choir, a Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) side project which he has stated may be his only project from here on out, came through LA last week celebrating their second album, Repave. The group, featuring members of Collections of Colonies of Bees along with Vernon, is based in Wisconsin so we can only guess how nice it must have been to play in sunny LA! The gorgeous and  hushed show, occasionally  broken up by bursts of rock and roll, showcased how Vernon has finessed his version of the quiet loud quiet formula into something moving yet powerful, all in one night.
