The members of Megafaun
have better beards than you. That's just a fact of life, something to accept that's as true and solid as death and taxes. But the hirstute band doesn't let its facial hair get in the way of fantastic musicianship. Since forming after the split of DeYarmond Edison (the band that a dude named Justin Vernon, a.k.a. Bon Iver just so happened to be in), Megafaun has grown into a fantastic askew-folk/country/indie/experimental act. (Labels are difficult.) Take a listen below, and then head to the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center
on Sunday for the band's show. As always, admission is just $5.
