Ah, Bon Iver. First you hit the Billboard charts. Then you win a Grammy (or two). Then you get spoofed by Justin Timberlake on “SNL.”

And now you’re headlining Red Rocks?

Bon Iver will headline Red Rocks on May 31, according to the band’s website. As for ticket prices and on-sale dates, that will surely be announced soon. Until then, the band joins other indie acts — including the Shins, Passion Pit, Florence + the Machine, the Avett Brothers and others — who will have a little Red Rocks action this coming summer.
