Bon Iver announces summer tour dates

itemprop

The ever coy Bon Iver.

You know, it makes a little more sense than it might at first seem. Bon Iver and the Indigo Girls are both extraordinarily astute songwriters, even if Iver is a little less formulaic in his stum-n-pick approach. And, let's be honest. With Iver's breakout debut having dropped in 2007, and the Indigo Girls still performing "Galileo" at so many state fair grandstands around the nation, Iver may be a little more, how you say, relevant?

Bon Iver has spent the last couple years harvesting regional fame, stacking accolades and positive reviews like so many sheaves of split firewood. Today, Mr. Vernon (it's what Bon Iver's mother named him) announced his summer touring plans. And it's a big honker. 3 months on the road, with a few weeks in Europe, spots at Bonaroo, Lollapalooza, and punctuated in October with an appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival (in Austin, duh) mean that Iver's days as a reclusive, solitary auteur may be in danger.
