Tonight, Brooklyn's Sharon Van Etten and Baltimore's Flock of Dimes perform at The Earl. Here's Ms. Van Etten earlier this year performing at New York's Mercury Lounge:
According to Atlanta's Creative Loafing newspaper, Ms. Van Etten's music "finds honesty in the equivocal, love amidst gloom. Like Brooklynite Lucinda Williams, Van Etten's bold vocal tones suggest a depth of being formed by a young lifetime of hard-won triumphs."
Meanwhile, way back during last year's Rocktober, I mentioned that I would love to hear Wye Oak play a smaller club like The Earl some day. While that wish hasn't yet been fulfilled, I do get to hear Flock of Dimes, "a sample-heavy project weighted by Wye Oak frontwoman Jenn Wasner's deliriously wonderful songwriting" (the Loaf again) at The Earl tonight.
