Sharon Van Etten has the results of your blood test: you're fine and she's going on tour

Sharon Van Etten is an acclaimed singer-songwriter, we know this. But would you believe me if I told you she was also a doctor? You would? Really? Well, cool, Sharon Van Etten is totally a doctor! In fact, she’s got the results of your blood test right now. As it turns out, your blood has transformed into a bloody mary constantly coursing through your veins, so you’re drunk all the time now. Bummer/awesome? Results of the test pointed to signs that Sharon Van Etten is doing a ton of touring this year behind her Jagjaguwar debut, Tramp (TMT Review), released earlier this year. What? Why would there be information relating to Sharon Van Etten in your blood? Shut up, you’ll believe whatever I tell you.

In fact, believe this information, because this information is true. Throughout most of the year’s remainder, Van Etten will be on a tour of one variety or another. This summer, she’ll be off on a North American tour. Following that, she’ll head to Europe for a while. Once that’s done, she’ll be back to North America once again for another tour, daaaaang. Within all this touring, there will be dates with such noted folks as Conor Oberst, Damien Jurado, Andrew Bird, and Tennis. In addition to all that, she’ll be sharing the stage with dozens of noted acts at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. Go to that, I will be there, we can hug.
