Bon Iver Hosts Anti-Sexual Assault Fundraiser Show in Southern California
Bon Iver are currently making their way through California, playing a few select summer shows. Last night (Aug. 8), the band used one of their shows to support a good cause.
The band posted on their social media accounts that the Santa Barbara show would support an organization promoting awareness of sexual assault, and to provide relief and resources to those who have been victims: "Show your support to our #2abillion partner @STESA_SB, a wonderful organization committed to transforming lives by providing services and education to meet the needs of their diverse community."
STESA stands for Standing Together to End Sexual Assault, a private, non-profit agency that "provides counseling, crisis intervention, and support services to survivors of sexual assault and their families."
Taking place at the Santa Barbara Bowl, the show attracted some famous fans, including Noah Cyrus. The star posted a picture from the front of the stadium calling the show a "life changing experience."
The folk band have been teasing fans with new music, and have hinted at a follow up release to 2016's 22 A Million.
Check out some of the posts from fans who turned out to see the band and support the good cause.
Bon Iver was magic tonight. Justin Vernon gave us what we all needed, a couple of hours to forget life, and allow their music to embrace my soul. Thank you @boniver @blobtower an unforgettable evening. Santa Barbara pic.twitter.com/5RSIIJ6Yjp— Sandra Villa (@SandraswithRich) August 9, 2018
