Sharon Van Etten working on 'Are We There'
As mentioned, Sharon Van Etten's new album, Are We There, will be out in May via Jagjaguwar. While we haven't gotten a full song yet, you can hear a good bit of one song via a teaser trailer for the album which shows Sharon and her band making the record. You can watch that below.
Sharon also has yet to announce a tour, but she'll be playing Union Pool this Sunday (2/23). It's a benefit for Jeffrey Kish (who has played on and arranged songs for Sharon) who had had surgery yesterday (2/19) following a bad carpentry accident last week. (The doctors seem optimistic about his recorery.) The Union Pool show also features The Fakers, Lone Wolf, Kyp Malone & Friends, and Iran. It's $20 at the door and all proceeds go to Kish's medical/recovery costs. You can also donate here.

Les Savy Fav in Austin in 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...
Ty Segall, VietNam, David Novick @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Ty Segall releases a lot of records (a lot) but they're all pretty different. Sleeper finds him in acoustic mode and expect him to be in a similar mode tonight -- his performance at FYF fest last weekend had him sitting down most of the show. For the louder Ty experience, he'll be back with Fuzz later this year.
Zero Boys, Night Birds, Nuclear Santa Claust, SpEd @ Europa
Midwest punk favorites Zero Boys return to NYC to bless Europa with the great surf-punk locals Night Birds and the Ramones-y Nuclear Santa Claust in tow. Fans of early 80s/punk hardcore, make sure to make it out, Zero Boys' appearance is a rare one and not to be missed.
She Keeps Bees, Last Good Tooth, Railbird @ Glasslands
Indie folk duo She Keeps Bees are busy cooking up a new record but gave a taste via a new single last month (stream it below). Tonight's show is well-matched with Providence, RI's Last Good Tooth and the slinky sounds of Railbird
Les Savy Fav, Delorean, Small Black @ House of Vans
The line-up is a little schizo, but no one seems to care at House of Vans. Les Savy Fav's music is fun, but the band truly comes alive live thanks to wildcard frontman Tim Harrington whose onstage antics are, at this point, legendary (see above). Spanish (well, Basque if your getting technical) dance troupe Delorean should get you primed and it's been revealed that the "Special Guest" is Brooklyn chillwavers Small Black. Free, but RSVP has been closed for some time, BUT the show will also be streaming online.
Classixx, Digitalism, Lou Teti, Le Youth, Plastic Plates, Malandro @ Output
The weekly INPUT party at Output (every Thursday) always gets a helluva lineup, and this week is no exception with LA dance duo Classixx, German electro duo Digitalism, and more.
Psychobuildings, Daytona, Grand Resort, Suburban Living, Literature, Haybaby @ Pianos
Tonight's the last show of Grand Resort's August residency, and it's a terrific (big) line-up, with Philadelphia's super-fun Literature, Norfolk, VA's Suburban Living, and more.
DJ Clark Kent, D-Nice, Stretch Armstrong, Tony Touch, Rich Medina @ Santos Party House
Five, yes FIVE, legendary DJs from the 90s and beyond team up for an unforgettable night of hip hop, soul, and everything under the sun. Highly recommended for fans of the era, deep grooves, or people who just like to get down.
DJ Eclipse, DJ Riz, DJ Premier, DJ Stretch Armstrong @ Le Poisson Rouge
The Halftime show, the heir to CM Famalam and much of the great underground hip hop of the 90s, celebrates 15 years at LPR tonight with hip hop legends like Lord Sear, DJ Premier, Eclipse, Stretch Armstrong and more. Expect surprise performances and appearances and a night of classic hip hop.
Steel Phantoms, Dusted, Rituals, Lurve @ Shea Stadium
Two Toronto bands, Dusted (the indie pop project from Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt) and the shoegazey/postpunky Rituals, are in NYC this week for two shows. Tonight they bless Brooklyn DIY spot Shea Stadium, and tomorrow they'll be at Cake Shop.
Bent Shapes, Shark?, The Doubts @ Silent Barn
If you missed Boston's Bent Shapes when they were in town last weekend, here's another chance to catch them. Their new album, Feels Weird, is filled with hooky, smart indiepop.
Light Asylum, Celebration, Mirror Mirror, Lone Wolf @ The Bowery Electric
Here's a show filled with magnetic live performers: Light Asylum's Shannon Fuchness is a pistol on stage, as is Celebration's Katrina Ford. The rest of the bill is similarly pitched dark, with electrorockers Mirror Mirror and Ryan Sawyer's solo project, Lone Wolf.
Anthony Naples, Lemonade (DJ set), Blouse (listening party) @ Topside Bar at SmorgasBar (FREE)
Captured Tracks kicks off it's CT5 weekend with this free event that starts with a listening party for Blouse's new album and continues with DJ sets after that.
A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Young Statues @ Asbury Lanes
Brooklyn's A Great Big Pile of Leaves play their hometown a lot (like last week), but if Asbury Park is an easier trip for you to make, tonight's show at the Lanes is not to miss. Their new album, You're Always On My Mind, dropped back in July and has been one hell of a summer album.
Roy Ayers @ Blue Note
Vibraphone master and funk legend Roy Ayers continues his four-night run with early and late shows. Let's hope her pulls out tracks from his much-lauded score to blaxploitation flick, Coffy (amongst his other great work).
Taj Mahal @ City Winery
The blues rock legend has been putting out records for 45 years and, at age 71, is still going strong, performing over 150 shows a year. This is his first of two City Winery shows this week.
Dave Chappelle, Flight of the Conchords @ Comcast Theatre (CT)
Funny or Die's travelling Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival doesn't stop in NYC proper, but it's not too far away tonight (Hartford, CT) and features a killer line-up of funny people.
Stephen Brodsky, Snake Oil, PC Worship @ Saint Vitus
Stephen Brodsky has been known for his work in some very heavy bands (Cave In, Converge), but as a solo artist, he takes a much softer approach. He'll still feel home at Brooklyn's mostly-metal bar Saint Vitus though, and that's where you can see him tonight.
For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Thurston & John on stage w/ Sharon Van Etten in Nov. (more by Chris La Putt)
Thurston Moore and his Chelsea Light Moving bandmate John Moloney, who released the collaborative Caught On Tape earlier this year, are teaming up for a NYC show at Union Pool on December 11 with Speedy Ortiz and Lone Wolf (aka Ryan Sawyer, who also appears at Union Pool a few days earlier with Yeah Yeah Yeahs for a Sandy benefit). Admission is $10 at the door.
For Northampton's Speedy Ortiz, the show is part of a short December tour which also includes another Brooklyn show happening on December 13 at Shea Stadium with Grooms, Lushes, and Eartheater. After that tour, they plan to head out with Roomrunner in January but the dates for that tour have not been announced yet. Roomrunner meanwhile open for Future of the Left at Knitting Factory tonight (11/27).
As mentioned, Thurston Moore's ex-Sonic Youth bandmate/wife Kim Gordon will appear at the Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me show at Terminal 5 (12/1), along with Al Cisneros (Om, Sleep) and Johnny Marr. Kurt Vile opens the show and tickets are still available.
A list of all Speedy Ortiz dates and an excerpt of Thurston & John's Caught On Tape release, below...
Though tickets for the previously discussed Turing Machine/Violent Bullshit show at Union Pool on 5/18 have flown out the door (it is now sold out), at least you didn't entirely miss the train. Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue Union Pool have announced both bands, along with names like Eric Copeland (Black Dice), Rain Machine (Kyp Malone of TV on The Radio), Bubbles, TEEN, Ryan Sawyer / Nate Wooley / C. Spencer Yeh, LONE WOLF and Test House, as the first batch of artists in their Summer Thunder Series, their annual set of FREE shows taking place on the patio on every other Saturday afternoon from May 26th until August 18th. Summer Thunder 2012 is being curated by the venue along with Ryan Sawyer (Lone Wolf/Tall Firs/Glass Rock) and Summer Thunder creator and artist J. Penry, with each week promising free music, "drink specials, free koozies, T-shirts for purchase by J. Penry, and lots of Jameson". That last part just sold me.
Exact dates are on the poster above. Exact lineups TBA soon.

Wild Beasts @ Highline Ballroom
Wild Beasts headlined Highline Ballroom on Aug 11th with Lone Wolf and The Kissaway Trail. Wild Beasts' record, Two Dancers is currently up for the Mercury Prize (the UK's album of the year), the results of which will be announced on September 7th. The show was one of a few US dates for the crew, and now the band is already back in their native UK preparing for a string of festival dates including the Reading/Leeds Festivals next weekend.
