Justin Vernon, of the nom de psychfolk Bon Iver, once explained that he needed a minimum of 80 extra singers to perform his songs live. Care to be one of them? He'll perform the sweetly unfurling singer-songwriter balladry of last year's For Emma, Forever Ago alongside Chris Rosenau (of rockers Collections of Colonies of Bees) and Steve Kimock (of jazz/funk outfit Zero) in collaboration with the New York Guitar Festival. This is a brazen pop step for Merkin Concert Hall, long classically oriented and, even longer, a name that evokes New York's truest Rorschach test of your maturity level.
