Weekend Preview: Oberhofer & Sharon Van Etten in Cincinnati
Now that record store day is in the books, we in Cincinnati have the pleasure of another fabulous indie music based weekend on deck. On Friday, Sharon Van Etten will be performing at Mayday in the Northside in support of her fabulous recent album Tramp. One of my own Record Store Day vinyl purchases from Shake-It, the album is the first true triumph of Sharon’s young career. Intimately emotional and heart wrenching, I’d hate to be the guy that inspired this is album, but I thank him for being around Sharon to inspire this masterpiece of sound. Tickets are still available via TicketFly for a measly $10. Don’t miss out as this will probably reach a sell out shortly. Check out Sharon’s recent Tiny Desk Concert courtesy of NPR below if you’re still on the fence.
If that wasn’t enough, we have Tacoma born and current Brooklynite band Oberhofer in town on Saturday with Chicago based Young Man at the MOTR Pub in Over the Rhine (OTR). Oberhofer is touring in support of his debut LP Time Capsules II, which Brett reviewed earlier this year. A healthy dose of fun pop, I’ve been digging on it recently and am excited to see the show in person. As always at the MOTR pub, this is a FREE show so get out early and have a few beers at OTR’s best music spot. Check out Oberhofer’s Late Night debut on David Letterman below with album hit “Away Frm U” below.
