Indigo Girls Take Bon Iver on the Road

    Opening bands are usually hit or miss, simply because they’re probably not the people you paid your good money to see. Hopefully, the people who are going to see Indigo Girls on July 14-18 won’t decide to skip the opener, cause they’ll be missing a real treat: the alternative folk rock duo have asked Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon to open for three of Indigo Girls’ California dates. If Vernon plays this right, he might be on the path to surpassing Feist as the “new music” choice of cool moms.

     

    Bon Iver tour dates, including Vernon’s dates with Indigo Girls, below.
