Review: Bon Iver brings weird warmth to the Straz Center in Tampa
Bon Iver brought a much anticipated concer to the Straz Center in Tampa Thursday night, and a crowd of 2,236 was there to meet Justin Vernon and company. Sean Daly was among them, and he writes:
Amid a sea of puckishly programmed lanterns and shredded burlap curtains acting as unlikely video screens, Vernon & Co. aimed to keep the crowd engaged and off-balance (strobes! lightning!), and that goes for his demeanor, as well. His between-song banter was collegial and goofy, but once a song kicked in, he was often a twitchy, pained creator.
