Sharon Van Etten at Bruar Falls (more by Jessica Amaya)
Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten just released a new 7" via Polyvinyl and is currently on the road with Junip. In December she plays some shows in Japan! In 2011 she'll return to the stage for a hometown show at Bowery Ballroom on January 8th! It's always exciting to watch someone book their first show at the 600+ capacity venue, especially when they can probably already list every other smaller NYC venue on their resume (and bigger ones too - as opener). Tickets go on sale at noon today (11/19). Let's pack the room.

Van Etten's current tourmates will be in NYC much much sooner, but she isn't opening the show. Junip (Jose Gonzalez's band) play Irving Plaza on November 24th but with Lost in the Trees. Tickets are still available.

Later in January Sharon will play even more US dates, and then in February she heads to Europe to open shows for the National.

Tour dates for both bands and some videos below...
