Sharon Van Etten Announces Special Guests for Town Hall Show

Sharon Van Etten will be wrapping up the U.S. portion of her 2012 touring on Thursday the 15th at Town Hall in New York City.  From there she will head over to Europe, but she isn't leaving without a big send-off.  Her Town Hall show will feature several special guests, as outlined a portion of the press release that was sent out:

Sharon Van Etten will cap off 2012 with one final US headlining show in support of Tramp at Town Hall next Thursday, Nov. 15. Yesterday, Brooklyn Vegan announced that Sharon will be joined onstage by an eye-popping list of special guests which includes Thurston Moore, Aaron Dessner (The National), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Peter Silberman (Antlers), Brad Cook (Megafaun) and John Maloney. This is Sharon's first headlining show in New York since selling out two nights at Bowery Ballroom and one night at Music Hall of Williamsburg in February. It is sure to be a great night of music and the perfect way to end a wildly successful 2012[.]

That's quite a list of guests that will surely make for a memorable night of performances.  Her latest album Tramp has received plenty of critical praise (7.9 on Pitchfork, 8.3 on Paste, and more sparkling reviews) and has been touring to support that album.  She will also be issuing a deluxe version of that album that is due out the 13th via Jagjaguwar Records.  Here's a video of a demo for the bonus track on the album "Tell Me:"

She even made a playful little video to promote the show that features plenty of salad:

That's just adorable, except for the raw spinach part.  Throw a little dressing or something on there.  Van Etten is playing a few more shows before Town Hall and before she heads overseas.  Here's the list of remaining dates:
