Formerly PEOPLE Festival, 37d03d is a collaborative event put on by Vernon and The National‘s Aaron Dessner. Kicking off at Brooklyn’s Pioneer Works yesterday (May 3), the first night featured an array of unique collaborations and special sets spread out across two stages.
One of the evening’s highlights came when a Vernon-led cover band performed their own takes of Dylan songs such as ‘Angelina’, ‘All Along the Watchtower’, ‘Not Dark Yet’, ‘Meet Me in the Morning’, ‘Spanish is the Loving Tongue’, and more.
Following the Dylan tribute, Vernon reappeared for a song during Bonny Light Horseman’s set, which also featured Anais Mitchell, Josh Kaufman, Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats), and his festival co-creator, Dessner.
