Sharon Van Etten @ Town Hall

Sharon Van Etten brought her tour through NYC for a hometown show at Town Hall on November 15, her biggest headlining date in the area yet. Though she unfortunately was not supported by Damien Jurado, who opened most of the tour, she treated her hometown fans to a special show without an opener, which instead saw Sharon playing two sets and an encore with a number of special guests. The guests, mostly past collaborators, included Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak, Peter Silberman from The Antlers, Brad Cook from Megafaun, Aaron Dessner (who produced her new album) from The National, Thurston Moore (and his band, Chelsea Light Moving), and her own father, who came out to cover “Barstool Blues” by Neil Young (who he is a fan of and it was his birthday, which is why Sharon chose that cover) during the encore. A special night for many reasons.

When Thurston Moore first came out, it was all the members of his band Chelsea Light Moving (Keith Wood, Samara Lubelski, and John Moloney) and all the members of Sharon’s band, to play the CLM song, “Groovy and Linda,” which you can download above and stream below.

Sharon is also presenting a show in NYC soon with She Keeps Bees and Speck Mountain, that she may or may not be performing at.
