I-94 Local Music

Today, we’re reading Steve Marsh’s MSP Magazine article, “How Bon Iver and Other Wisconsin Bands Invaded Local Music.” As you read, prepare yourself to answer the following questions:

  • What do you think of Marsh’s characterization of Eau Claire and Western Wisconsin?
  • What does Marsh’s history of Eau Claire? Particularly, what do you think of his discussion of the music scene?
  • Marsh provides a example from the famous musician and producer Brian Eno, a “scenius.” Does this apply to Bon Iver? Or, can you think of other musicians to which this term applies?
  • If you were to create a curation project about this topic, how might you focus the topic? What artifacts would you look for?
