Love,

Sharon Van Etten / Yo La Tengo / The Tallest Man on Earth / Frankie Cosmos / Julianna Barwick / John Zorn / Bowery Ballroom / and more but we're running out of room on this card I'm sure you understand we couldn't possibly fit every single name of every sing artist playing this thing there just isn't any space left for that

P.S. Oh My Rockness says you were a good record store 2

St. Vincent headlines a big time benefit at (le) poisson rouge. She is good.
