Into the Woods

It’s been a little over a year since indie-folk troubadour Justin Vernon released Bon Iver’s self-titled second album of echoey, intricately orchestrated confessionals. Since then, the soft-rock-leaning Bon Iver won a Grammy, Vernon released a dubstep single (with James Blake), and he and his bandmates booked a four-night residency at Radio City Music Hall, which begins September 19. In a way, the cavernous Music Hall is the ideal setting for the members of Bon Iver, who, on record, seem to revel in letting their instruments envelop Vernon’s voice on songs such as “Holocene,” forcing listeners to struggle and strain to make out harmonized, high-pitched lyrics like the song’s “and at once I knew I was not magnificent.” The setting makes you work a little harder. The first two dates feature folk artist Anaïs Mitchell, who’s duetted with Vernon in the past. Doug Paisley opens the show on September 21; Polica on September 22.
Wed., Sept. 19, 8 p.m.; Thu., Sept. 20, 8 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 21, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 22, 8 p.m., 2012
