Bon Iver have the ability to leave audience members slack-jawed, lost in a quiet wonder. It's a warm kind of immobility, a stock-still inertia; after surging during a shred-heavy "Creature Fear," the effect lets up during sing-along tune "Skinny Love." But once encore "Beth/Rest" starts chiming across the field, sounding not unlike the famous theme from Chariots of Fire, people stand entranced everywhere. What started as a blazing afternoon dips into placid night.
