cut out all the ropes and let me fall

Here at M|H we try to deliver a critical response to music and related pop-culture, but occasionally we just melt into puddles of adoring fandom. This is one of those times. On July 23, 2011 we headed to the Riverside in Milwaukee, WI to see Bon Iver for the first time. Never in the same place at the same time, it’s been a meeting long in the making. Often left speechless, it was all we could do to alternate between beaming grins and rapt, dropped-jaw gazing. Suffice it to say Bon Iver exceeded all expectations.
