At Cake Shop on Sunday night, Sharon Van Etten opened her headlining set to an enthusiastic crowd with a new song we believe is called “Whoa!”, and contains the refrain “oh, slow down”. Sharon could well be singing about how fast so many aspects of her career are moving. The very next day after Cake Shop, Sharon began another tour, this time with Festival, Bowerbirds and others, that runs through the end of August and covers the South and Midwest. The exciting date on the tour is Sharon’s appearance at the 47th Annual legendary Philadelphia Folk Festival on August 16. She has also booked an appearance at an official CMJ showcase in October, with more details to follow.

We recorded Sharon’s final NYC appearance of the summer from the upfront location at Cake Shop that we have used in the past. Unfortunately, the air conditioning at Cake Shop was broken, and the room was ventilated with two rather loud electric rotating fans. The recording has a consistent hum of the fans in the background. Otherwise, its an intimate recording of a outstanding performer. Enjoy!
