Sharon Van Etten || Der Rathskeller 4.8.11


Sharon Van Etten packed the Union on Friday, April 8th. I was curious to see how Sharon’s quiet, feminine, and often melancholy music would do in the open, noisy Rathskeller. Upon seeing the electric guitars, I felt a little more assured that it would drown out the chatter.
This show definitely wasn’t as intimate as the her show earlier at Strictly Discs, and people couldn’t really decide if they should sit down or stand, but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. Sharon has such a captivating voice, and backed by a bassist and drummer, it really filled up the space. She ended the show with my favorite song, “Love More”, using a harmonium. There was some feedback at the beginning so she stopped and almost ended the show. After some boos from the crowd, she went into it again, this time more successfully.
