Sharon Van Etten Reminds Us Today That She Is A Force To Be Reckoned With

Sharon Van Etten just released fifth album Remind Me Tomorrow (Jagjaguwar), and she’s on the road all this month supporting it. Lucky for us, her second show of the tour was in our hometown of Philadelphia. With London up-and-comer Nilüfer Yanya opening, the Brooklyn-based Van Etten and band wowed the sold-out Union Transfer crowd with a 16-song set, which included a solo cover of Sinéad O’Connor’s “Black Boys On Mopeds.” MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich was there and witnessed what he says is certainly one of the best shows he’ll see this year.
