Shara Worden w/ The Decemberists @ Newport Folk Fest (more by Jim Brueckner)
Shara Worden

Shara Worden (aka My Brightest Diamond) has been keeping busy. At some point she recorded a song with David Byrne for his new CD coming out. You may have caught her as part of The Long Count at BAM, and she spent much of 2009 touring with The Decemberists including their October 21st "Here Come the Waves: Hazards of Love Visualized" show at Royce Hall which was released on December 1st as a "full-length video album available exclusively through iTunes" (more info and trailer below).

She was also part of Dark Was the Night - the CD and the concert. That's all since her 2nd My Brightest Diamond album came out in mid 2008. Now, My Brightest Diamond is back for at least one NYC show: January 22, 2009 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are on sale.

Tickets also recently went on sale for: Aziz Ansari, Beth Orton & Charlotte Gainsbourg.
