In her set opening for the Antlers at Bowery Ballroom, Sharon Van Etten exhibited her playful side. As she becomes more comfortable playing before larger crowds, Sharon has allowed her charming personality to amplify the quality of her songs. At Bowery, the fan gift of a tiny paper crane became the object of a wonderful performer-audience interplay that Sharon then incorporated into her terrific brand new song “Heart in the Ground”.

This set was recorded from the same location as the Antlers and Uninhabitable Mansions sets and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    I made the paper crane! I made it it out of a receipt I had cause I got there super early and was bored waiting for the opener to come on. Sharon came on and she was so charming I didn’t have a choice but to give it to her. It absolutely made my night that she accepted it and BLEW my mind when she dedicated the next song to me. Ever so grateful. Glad me and my buddy drove from NH to see The Antlers and were lucky enough to catch her as well. =) =) =)
