The Fox Theater in Oakland
Bon Iver performs with Megafaun on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m., advance tickets sold out; www.apeconcerts.com.
Now that his cabin-recorded debut has penetrated all corners of the globe, Justin Vernon is taking his onetime solo project Bon Iver on the road with his former DeYarmond Edison bandmates, who now comprise Megafaun. Earlier this year, he applied his craggy falsetto and fractured strum to plinking piano and vocoder on the lovely Blood Bank EP. This month, his collaboration with the Milwaukee band Collections of Colonies of Bees will see release under the name Volcano Choir. It might be a detour on the road to the next Bon Iver album, but detours are what Vernon does best.
