Sharon at Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Jessica Amaya)
Sharon Van Etten

First of all, Sharon Van Etten's Green Space show for WNYC is streaming live RIGHT NOW (update: that is over. Keep a look out for the archived footage).

In other news, Sharon, who recently announced a Mercury Lounge show happening on Wednesday (1/18) (which is now sold out), has added another NYC date to her tour. The new show is happening on February 26 at Bowery Ballroom with Carter Tanton and Glass Ghost. The show happens after she plays MHOW on 2/24 and Bowery Ballroom on 2/25 with Shearwater, who plays with her on most of the other tour dates as well. Tickets for the new Bowery show go on sale Wednesday (1/18) at noon and tickets for the other Bowery show and the MHOW show are still available.

I like her and all, but is there seriously this much demand???

Ok and your point is?

So should us freeloaders thank the idiots who actually bought the album for being able to listen to it weeks before its release?

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 4:05 PM

how is the album?

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 4:12 PM

It sounds like the National, only its a reverb-heavy Sharon Van Etten on lead vocals.

this time next year she will be headlining msg

yeah right, but maybe somewhere like town hall wouldn't be out of the question. i think nice, mid-sized theaters are her destiny, actually. can't see this schtick getting much bigger than that, but who knows. more power to her! wouldn't be surprised if she showed up on the prospect park summer concert list this year, either.

I just don't get it. I haven't met a single soul who is adamant about Sharon Van Etten in the least. Everyone seems to just regard her as "eh," and no one seems to be dying to go to her shows. So where are all these tickets going?

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 5:12 PM

All the tickets are going to bloggers who are going to end up giving them away in some contest

5:12, if she played Prospect Park, it'd be as the opening act in a four-band free show

that's pretty much what i meant, a multiple act bill of sorts. its pretty common, and she is certainly a darling these days.

The National should change their name to ikea

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 6:56 PM

I like IKEA. Thay have tasty meatballs. Can't say the same about The National.

Tramp is totally beautiful. Can't stop listening. Hasn't she already played Bowery and Music Hall? What's all the surprise about?

Posted by Anonymous | January 17, 2012 11:35 PM

It's not so much surprise as it is incredulity. Yes, she has played Bowery and MHoW before, but she's never done a two-show run in those venues because there wasn't demand. The addition of a third show even though the first two scheduled shows haven't even sold out yet seems unnecessary.

^^ it's good to fuck rich yuppies like ikea/the national
