Shearwater @ Bowery Ballroom
Shearwater

Shearwater completed a tour with Sharon Van Etten over the course of two nights in NYC over the weekend. Pictures from their opening set at Bowery Ballroom on 2/25 are in this post (pictures of Sharon are HERE).

Shearwater is currently on the road for a string of US and European dates, including SXSW (where they'll play a Stereogum party), and a stint with St. Vincent. None of the shows with St. Vincent hit NYC but Shearwater will make a stop here for their own show during the tour at Le Poisson Rouge on May 6. Tickets for that Manhattan show are on sale now.

In other news, you can still stream all of Shearwater's new LP Animal Joy below. Pick up your copy now via Sub Pop.

WTF? Where is Thor?

And Kim too. I guess the new touring Shearwater just ain't the classic lineup.

Look at that crowd. Look at the drummer's moustache.

And look at the shameless promotion, using just her first name.

Seriously. Her new album is great and all, but not sure she's earned "Madonna" or "Prince" status quite yet. Hell, I'm not even sure she's earned "Seal" or "Robyn" status yet.
