Hopscotch Music Festival presents Sharon Van Etten, Ava Luna, Tender Fruit 

When: Fri., March 11, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

While Sharon Van Etten's modestly uncapitalized epic is a short album (clocking in at eight tracks and a mere 32 minutes), doing justice to its scope and grandeur requires copious use of the Caps Lock key. On only her second LP, Sharon Van Etten blows the doors off the flattering girl-with-a-guitar comparisons she earned for 2009's Because I Was In Love, revealing an adventurous and restless musical spirit that's a perfect match for her bell-clear voice and unflinching candor. She might speak softly, but Van Etten's songs are some of the biggest sticks around. Ava Luna and The Tender Fruit open. —David Raposa
