Sharon Van Etten @ BV-SXSW 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Sharon Van Etten, who recently opened for and played with The National, contributed backing vocals to a song The National wrote for the movie "Win Win". That song, "Think You Can Wait", is on the shortlist of 39 songs eligible to be nominated for an Oscar. That list, reprinted in full below, also includes songs by Jonsi and She & Him.

In other Sharon news, after the show sold out today, it was revealed that she is the secret guest playing with Ted Leo at Maxwell's on New Year's Eve! (not the first time they've shared a bill). She's also appearing on WNYC's Soundcheck on January 17th. You can buy tickets to attend the afternoon taping at the Greene Space. You can also still buy tickets for other shows she has coming up which will be in support of her new album.

Which BV writer or editor is dating this woman? Why is she mentioned two or three times a week?

I wonder the same thing about many bands @9:19. Who's bangin or crushing on any of these bands' ladies is often the first thing on my mind when I see these kinds of posts.

They really need to dump this category, though I guess it'll get the Muppets a reason to show.

Check out the Shillaly Brothers' "Pop" from White Irish Drinkers. Powerful song from a great film and ending.

Ted Leo needs to be a husband to his wife and a sugar daddy to his side piece and go away.
