Last year, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon organized a not-for-profit concert in Berlin with a group of more than 80 artists. Now, some of the performances from the evening have been released online, and they’re pretty incredible.
Bon Iver’s latest album 22, A Million is a great listen, but it’s hard to picture how some of the experimental studio songs would translate to a live performance, but the videos offer a cool take on some tracks from the album.
This week, we talk with OK Go about their crazy music videos, how they pull them off and the surprisingly deep reason for shooting them in the first place. We also speak with Sokeel Park of the group Liberty in North Korea about the dire situation in the country and how you can help. The gang also discusses Apple's controversial new iPhone feature, learns about how Chris Pratt came to faith, hears Stephen Colbert’s thoughts on the dangers of political divisiveness and a lot more.

Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know” (featuring Kimbra) was one of the most inescapable songs of 2011. And, sure, it’s still not a bad song. But as this remix from TRONICBOX shows, it makes a way better, synth-powered ‘80s power ballad.
In case you’re unfamiliar with TRONICBOX, it’s the same mastermind that reimagined some popular Bieber jams as though they were yacht-rock hits released 30 years ago. He is a true genius. Discuss
U2’s iconic album Joshua Tree was released three decades ago, but you still have a chance to see it performed in its entirety once again. To celebrate the record’s 30th anniversary, the band is embarking on a Joshua Tree tour were they will perform the album for fans in 25 cities around the world.
As guitar player The Edge explained to Rolling Stone, the band is still deciding how the shows will play out, but, each concert date will feature every song on the album:
The show might not necessarily start with Track One, Side One, "Where the Streets Have No Name," because we feel like maybe we need to build up to that moment, so we're still in the middle of figuring out exactly how the running order will go, so yes. We will be playing the album in sequence.
