Track 3 from the album Bon Iver, Bon Iver.
Justin Vernon: "Holocene is a bar in Portland, Ore., but it's also the name of a geologic era, an epoch if you will. It's a good example of how all the songs are all meant to come together as this idea that places are times and people are places and times are... people? [Laughs.] They can all be different and the same at the same time. Most of our lives feel like these epochs. That's kind of what that song's about. 'Once I knew I was not magnificent.' Our lives feel like these epochs, but really we are dust in the wind. But I think there's a significance in that insignificance that I was trying to look at in that song."
Alex Bertolucci: "It's a fun place to go dancing and hang out with your friends. They have good drinks but it can take a while to get one. The vibe is a good one. The atmosphere is OK but nothing spectacular. A fun club"
