Sharon Van Etten Extends Tour Through August

It’s your lucky day. If you didn’t get the chance to see Sharon Van Etten the first time around, you may be able to this summer. Upon returning from the European leg of her tour, Sharon will make a few additional stops in cities across Canada and the United States. The tour features a number of festival performances, including Le Guess Who, Primavera, Latitude, Newport Folk, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Caldera festivals. She’ll be joined by Flock of Dimes, Tennis, Andrew Bird and Secretly Canadian’s own Exitmusic. You can see the full list of dates, as well as links to buy tickets, HERE.

Praise for Sharon Van Etten

“Focusing mostly on new material, SVE’s syrupy pipes filled the room just like you’d expect them to. Her impeccable, folk-spun melodies were executed with precision and passion. The thing that’s so incredible about Van Etten, is how she’s able to meld harsh and gentle together so seamlessly. At its core, her music is angry, but a gentle approach to that anger yields undeniably gorgeous results. Her lyrics are bitterly heartbreaking, her strums occasionally crass, her energy genuinely raw and powerful. But there’s a sort of delicate beauty to it all.” Consequence of Sound

As I watched her burn through a driving version of ‘Don’t Do It,’ a highlight from her 2010 album, epic, I was struck by how much more self-assured and professional she sounded than when I’d seen her at Bottom of the Hill just a year prior. In fact, the whole show seemed like a snapshot of a songwriter who is just beginning to feel comfortable in her own skin – which made me even more excited to see where she goes from here.” SF Bay Guardian

“Sharon Van Etten is not a diva. Walking on stage at the Bluebird last night, as unassumingly as if she were in the grocery store produce aisle, Van Etten appeared confident and casual. There was no pretense about her or her band, a four-piece that featured two multi-instrumentalists and a drummer. The singer’s presence was totally unremarkable. This all changed soon after, though. Strumming a Fender Jazzmaster and accompanied by a harmonium, Van Etten let out a husky wail that soon silenced an otherwise chatty crowd.” Westword

BON IVER Joins Lollapalooza Line-Up, Performs With Alma Mater High School’s Jazz Band

For the last year and a half, BON IVER’S Justin Vernon has been on a musical tear across the planet. And this summer finds Bon Iver still blazing that trail, most recently adding Bon Iver’s own batch of awesome to an already stellar Lollapalooza 2009 line-up. Find nearly everything you need to know about Lollapalooza HERE.

Through the summer, Justin Vernon and Bon Iver will perform at festivals both European and stateside. A full list of Bon Iver and Justin Vernon tour dates can be found HERE.

Meanwhile, this past weekend, Justin performed a set of Bon Iver jammers and jazz standards with the Eau Claire Memorial High School Jazz Band – of which he was once a member not all that long ago. It’s an amazing thing to think about and read about, yes. But watching these young musicians solidly back Justin in an amazing rendition of “For Emma, Forever Ago,” is its own magic altogether. Please enjoy.
