Live at TONY: Sharon Van Etten sings bittersweet modern folk



Add +

Bringing you Live at TONY each week for the past few months hasn't always been easy. Somehow, someway, equipment woes, elevator mix-ups and myriad miscommunications have managed to plague many of our in-office tapings. But this week's couldn't have been easier: Singer-songsmith Sharon Van Etten strolled in with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a smile, and after a ten-second sound check, she proceeded to knock us out with her low-key yet high-intensity modern folk. Check out this performance of "For You"—from Van Etten's latest release, Because I Was in Love (Language of Stone)—and then catch her live Saturday (August 29) at BKLYN Yard with a bunch of other cool local acts. After that she's at Joe's Pub Friday, September 4.
