Volcano Choir is the artfully poignant collaboration between Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and Collection of Colonies of Bees, an unlikely alliance that always seemed like a long-simmering side project that only the gifted participants would ever get to hear. That they actually released a truly stunning album, Unmap, was a surprise, but the fact that they are finally going to play those songs together locally for the first time is the real shock, and should make for quite a momentous performance. Vernon is captivating whenever he steps on stage, and when his wistful vocals are combined with the luxuriously experimental Bees, magic simply happens. This is one special show that you certainly don't want to miss. With Mystery Palace. All ages. (Photo by Cameron Wittig)
