Sharon at Warsaw - 2/18/15
Sharon Van Etten brought her tour to Greenpoint's Warsaw for two sold-out shows this week, last night (2/19) and Wednesday (2/18). Both shows were great, with a good mix of her 2014 album and earlier material, and also a little bit of brand new stuff. At the second show, a man passed out about halfway through the set and Sharon stopped the show to check on him after he was carried out of the venue, but luckily he was okay. When she got back on stage, she thanked everyone at the venue, and before continuing her set said, "Now I'll continue playing sad songs knowing nothing sad is happening."
Opening both nights was Leon Bridges, who had a smooth New Orleans-style blues sound. He was backed by a saxist and two backing vocalists, who occasionally played percussion too. He also headlined a sold-out Mercury Lounge show on Tuesday (2/17) before the shows with SVE. Anyone catch that?
