CONTEST – Sharon Van Etten @ The Phoenix – July 31, 2012
Frank YangWho: Sharon Van Etten
What: Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who seemed to break out with 2010’s epic until this year’s Tramp came out and showed what breaking out really looked like.
Why: Though she technically already brought Tramp through town in February, her album was only a week old and her fanbase has grown immensely since; a return engagement was most necessary.
When: Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Where: The Phoenix in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Denver’s Tennis make the bill a solid one-two punch.
How: Tickets for the show are $18.50 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I’ve got one pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Sharon Van Etten” in the subject line and your full name in the body and have that in to me before midnight, July 26.
What else: Van Etten talks to The Record about her New Jersey roots and This Is Bristol about the personal investment in her songs.
