Sharon Van Etten: Don't Let The Simple Name Fool You 

Friday, April 1, Neurolux

Sharon Van Etten is an unimposing name, which is maybe why the indie/folk rocker titled her latest release Epic (Ba Da Bing), lest you mistakenly discount the passionate guitar-slinging singer.

Fresh off a trip to SXSW, Brooklyn-based Van Etten will play Neurolux on Friday, April 1. When you see the wide-eyed brunette on stage, don't think it's time to grab a glass of grenache and spend the evening chatting with pals. Van Etten's vocals can go from hushed hymnal croon to gutsy gruffness in the space of a phrase, and her lyrics are often as dark as her melodies are sweet, as in "Love More": "Chained to the wall of our room / Yeah you chained me like a dog in our room / You were high when I was doomed." You might want to secure a pint or a pitcher and be prepared to pay some serious attention to this powerful performer.
