Megafaun, Darnielle & Vernon Team For Grateful Dead Cover

On Tuesday night psych-folk band Megafaun played a show at The Pinhook in Durham, NC; marking their first set in nearly two years. Megafaun was formed from the ashes of DeYarmond Edison, a group that also featured Justin Vernon, who went on to mastermind Bon Iver. The old band mates reunited on Tuesday night with Vernon guesting for Megafaun’s entire performance.

Vernon wasn’t Megafaun’s only guest on Tuesday as the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle and Hiss Golden Messenger’s Mike Taylor also appeared at various points. Darnielle led Megafaun and Vernon through a cover of the Grateful Dead classic “Friend Of The Devil.” Watch fan-shot footage thanks to DSchram1:
