Bon Iver And Megafaun at the Fillmore

Here's a video of Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) and Megafaun playing together at The Fillmore on September 22. Before their breakup in 2006, the indie-folk superstar and the North Carolina group played together in a band called DeYarmond Edison. Bon Iver has been touring with Megafaun for a number of shows this September, with six remaining shows in California, Arizona, and Texas.

The bands came together at the end of the night to play the folk song, "Worried Mind," off Megafaun's latest album, Gather, Form & Fly. The heartfelt performance features mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar, and banjo, along with gorgeous harmonies and some pretty impressive beards. The simple folk ballad transforms into a hymn as the audience begins to sing along, becoming more spiritual congregation than indie-rock crowd.
