Bon Iver Plays A Magical “Holocene” And “Beth/Rest” On Saturday Night Live

Amidst the weekend madness that was Madonna’s Super Bowl half time show and M.I.A’s controversial bird flip, Bon Iver‘s Saturday Night Live performance slipped quietly under the radar. So we’re going to bring it to your attention as a performance that shouldn’t go unwatched. Playing their hit song “Holocene” (above) and also the unexpected “Beth/Rest” (after the jump) Bon Iver and front man Justin Vernon were impeccable, magical and romantic with their soft brand of choral indie music. Hardly as controversial as Lana Del Rey’s SNL appearance, Bon Iver didn’t put a foot wrong. So whether you’re a Bon Iver fan or not we suggest you watch — especially since the Grammy nominated band wont actually be playing at the Grammys, this might be your best chance to see them on live television!
