During a recent visit to Cincinnati for their sold-out show at the Taft Theatre, Grammy Award-winning band Bon Iver spent the day with Pursuit at our new OTR Vine Street shop.
At Pursuit, we love working with people who inspire us. We’ve been huge fans of Bon Iver for many years, so hosting them at our newest shop was a thrill for our team. Pursuit worked collaboratively with the guys to design a unique look to match their personal style.
Bon Iver is a world-renowned indie rock band from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The band began as a solo project of frontman Justin Vernon and gained international notoriety with the album For Emma, Forever Ago, released in 2007. The band has gone on to win multiple Grammy awards and their most recent album, 22, A Million reached the top of the charts for US album sales. The band’s show at the Taft Theatre on March 31 was their first in Cincinnati in several years and sold out within hours.
Needless to say, Pursuit thrives on our unexpected collaborations like these. Last year, we struck up a partnership with the US Men’s Curling team just before they left for the Winter Olympics, outfitting them in suits and making collaborative videos. The team went on to win gold in PyeongChang and we celebrated by bringing them back to Columbus for a series of public events. We’ve also partnered with the likes of Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew SC.
We pride ourselves on having a strong connection to arts and live music, having hosted national touring artists like Trampled by Turtles and LOW for concerts in store, as well as hosting two seasons in our ‘In Pursuit’ Concert Series, featuring performances by up-and-coming Ohio artists. In fact, we plan to launch the series in our OTR shop later this year.
All in all, our team had a great time hosting Bon Iver, and we look forward to collaborating with many more amazing partners in the near future.
