The Eaux Claire Music Festival was the lovechild of Justin Vernon, an Eau Claire native, who goes by the moniker Bon Iver, and Aaron Dessner of The National.
“We at Eaux Claires have been driven by the idea that our festival would encourage music-genre-walls to melt away. That the barriers between the stage and the audience altered, and expression and experience put above all. We have put so much thought into who should collaborate at this festival, from musicians to actors, filmmakers to visual artists. We will all share and revel in this collision of artistic force while performing in the arms of our own Chippewa River Valley.” – Justin Vernon
The first time I attended a GRRRL PRTY was at Bastille Day. They are by far the best live act I’ve seen in quite some time. The swagger they emit is beyond believable.
Not only was their stage presence phenomenal, but they are all incredible lyricists as well. I have to admit that Lizzo is my favorite, but her rapping style is just insane and in the words of my friend who went up to her after the show to tell her so, “her moves are fantastic.”
