Future Nostalgia: Sharon Van Etten playing Mercury Lounge 1/18, ticketson sale at 12pm

While poking around on the Bowery Presents website this morning, I happened to notice that one of my favorite artists around today--Sharon Van Etten--will be playing the intimate Mercury Lounge next Wednesday, with tickets going on sale today at 12pm. Van Etten recently just opened for The National at the Beacon Theatre, and is about to release her third album Tramp in February, produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner for Jagjaguwar. Tramp will be the much anticipated follow up to her excellent album Epic, one of my favorite records of 2010. If you’re smart, you’ll grab a ticket to this and revel in one of indie’s greatest young talents, playing a venue considerably smaller than she will be playing in the months to come. See you there.
