Before Bon Iver and Megafaun separately blew the hell up, both bands were collectively part of DeYarmond Edison, the now defunct NC via WI super-group of folk power. Consisting of Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and Megafaun members Joe Westerlund, Phil Cook and Brad Cook, they were poised to become the biggest thing to come out of the Triangle since Ryan Adams gave us all the finger and moved to NYC.
Well, they reunited for a short set at South by Southwest, playing just three songs - “Lovers Will” by Bonnie Raitt, “You’ve Got a Friend” by Carole King and “Set Me Free,” a DeYarmond Edison original. Sure would be nice to see a reunion like that in the road guys...just saying.
