Sharon @ MHOW - 6/12/14
Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten released her newest album, Are We There, in May, and brought her tour in support of it to Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (6/12) for her first of three sold-out NYC shows. Sharon and her band (which includes Brad Cook of Megafaun and Darren Jessee of Ben Folds Five) mostly played stuff from the new album, and they were wonderful as usual. She did of course leave room for older favorites too, like "Give Out" which you can watch a video of below. Each of her three NYC shows has a different opener, last night's being Shilpa Ray (who also plays Knitting Factory tonight). Pictures of Sharon and Shilpa are in this post.

Last night's show was part of the Northside Festival which continues (the music portion, at least) through Sunday. Her next two shows (not part of Northside) are tonight (6/13) at Bowery Ballroom with Amen Dunes and Saturday at Bowery Ballroom with Jana Hunter.
