Sharon Van Etten Playing Bowery Ballroom In January
Politely acidic Brooklyn folkie Sharon Van Etten is a burgeoning SOTC obsession -- her intoxicating sophomore album, Epic, is a killer if you're in a particularly emotionally vulnerable mood. (YIMBY'd closing track "Love More" especially.) She hasn't played around here lately, alas, denying us the chance to stand around feeling emotionally vulnerable in public, but that will mercifully change in the new year, with a lengthy U.S. tour (including a mess of dates opening for the National), including a January 8 show at Bowery Ballroom. We will be there. The recent "Tiny Desk Concert" concert she did for NPR (this appears to be a self-explanatory thing) will hopefully convince you to be there, too:
