- Sharon van Etten will perform at Club Helsinki this month.
July 29. Brooklyn singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten, who plays Club Helsinki in July, is one of indie’s rising stars. After hearing her songs, TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone encouraged Van Etten to perform and she debuted in 2009 with the sparse Because I Was in Love. 2010’s Epic featured the haunting “Love More,” since covered by Bon Iver, Dave Alvin, and the National, whose Aaron Dessner recorded and produced Tramp, Van Etten’s newest album. The disc features guest appearances by Zach Condon, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, and the National’s Bryce Dessner. (Wye Oak performs July 8; the Punch Brothers’ Noam Pilkeny picks July 19.) 8pm. $18, $20.
