Sharon Van Etten at Bowery Ballroom in February (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten is on tour now and as discussed, that tour hits NYC on November 15 at Town Hall. At that show, Sharon will be joined on stage by a number of guests, including Thurston Moore, John Maloney, and a handful of her usual friends/collaborators Aaron Dessner (The National), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Peter Silberman (The Antlers), and Brad Cook (Megafaun). Tickets for that show are still available.

In other news, Sharon is releasing a deluxe edition of her 2012 album, Tramp, on November 13 via Jagjaguwar with demo versions of every song on the album, a bonus demo of "Tell Me," a self portrait, and liner notes from Sharon's journal. Regarding the demos, Sharon just told RedEye, "I'm kind of excited about [the demos] because I'm always interested in hearing where people came from and how they progressed. I believe my songs are strong enough to stand on their own--even way back then when they were recorded badly and minimally."

A stream of the "Tell Me" demo and an updated list of dates are below...

It seems she is having trouble selling that Town Hall show.

Town Hall holds 1500. The largest venue Sharon has sold out in NYC is Bowery/Music Hall at 550. Maybe Webster at 1200 would have been a better fit.

I'd insert it in that

211 you forgot that she played three sold out shows (2 at bowery/1 at mhow) earlier in the year....

I'm guessing that those three sold out shows (550 per night) is the reason that she's booked at 1500 capacity Town Hall, but that doesn't take into account the return attendees. Maybe only 1000 people in NYC actually attend Sharon shows?

Just to see, I tried Ticketmaster and just pulled up 2 tickets in Orchestra Row M. That's really surprising, maybe its less than 1000 tix already sold.

She'll come close. Also remmeber her record came out in Feb. So she is well at the end of her touring run ... Expect to see 'Tramp' on multiple year end best lists.

who cares about ticket sales and year-end lists?
what about music?

Ok I'll comment about music - saw her at mhow this year. She's not great live. Bland. Only one or 2 songs took off the rest were lifeless. She babbles between songs like a giddy schoolgirl - she thinks it's endearing but it's just annoying. Worse, all her songs started blurring together when hearing her live. I haven't really listened to her stuff since seeing her.

I think she's brilliant but the new record is not all that memorable.
