Bon Iver

Its safe to say a music-loving town like Austins familiar with Bon Iver , the folk-tinged indie band fronted by Justin Vernon. But that might not be the case for the public at large. Bon Iver has made numerous stops in Austin: at South by Southwest , the Austin City Limits Music Festival , and most recently, a performance at the Long Center . (KUT is a fan as well .) Nationally, Vernons stature has grown since appearing on Kanye Wests platinum-selling My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy , and Bon Ivers self-titled 2011 album was named album of the year by numerous critics, including music-review site Pitchfork . But for many, Vernons Grammy win for Best New Artist last night was the first many had heard of him. And moments after his acceptance speech, the confusion took to Twitter, with hilarious results.
