Sharon Van Etten @ The Luminary Arts

It wasn’t a perfect night, but Sharon Van Etten made sure the crowd ended on a high note as she took the stage at The Luminary Arts.

The War on Drugs returned to the Luminary stage after last gracing it on the Destroyer tour. With tracks from Slave Ambient at their arsenal, the Philly group took on a more experimental bend, allowing the songs to breathe and explore through instrumental interludes.

With the concert running over an hour behind due to a late door opening, it was no surprise that some of us were getting a little antsy between sets. But Sharon calmly walked on stage and asked everyone to join in on a quick moment of zen meditation. Inhale. Exhale. Mood cleared. And with that, we were ready to partake of her latest offerings from Tramp and Sharon’s personal delivery. But even though her songs can come with a bite, Sharon’s laid back demeanor between songs made it feel like a night between friends, and not one of catharsis, filled with jokes about cheeses and autoharps.
