One of Justin Vernon’s early, pre-Bon Iver bands was DeYarmond Edison, which included brothers Brad and Phil Cook and Joe Westerlund, the three of whom now make up most of experimental-leaning folk group Megafaun. Presumably because of bassist Nicholas Sanborn’s duties as Sylvan Esso‘s resident beatmaker, Vernon joined his former bandmates on stage Friday night for what the band said would be their last show for a while. Westerlund pulled double duty, opening the show as Grandma Sparrow, complete with wacky props and costume changes. — Ed.
