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

Matador Records helped Sonic Youth celebrate the release of their new record The Eternal with a party at Home Sweet Home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan last Friday. The semi-private show had local bands playing Sonic Youth covers while the actual Sonic Youth was hanging out in the crowd.
Bands included The Antlers, Tiny Masters of Today, Apache Beat, The Homosexuals (backed by members of Fiasco), and "The Goo Believers" (at least that's what I think they called themselves). They were Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine), Jemina Pearl (Be Your Own Pet, Ecstatic Peace label), Matt Krefting (Ecstatic Peace label), Zachary Cale, John Maloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man), and Jaiko Suzuki (Electroputas). You can see Thurston Moore watching them from the sidelines in some of the pictures below...
