WFUV at SXSW: Sharon Van Etten Interview

by Laura Fedele

Rita Houston and the SXSW crew bumped into Sharon Van Etten at the Hotel San Jose on Thursday, unwinding after her big NPR Showcase at Stubb's on Wednesday  night.

They talk about the show ("It was really raw, really straightforward"), and what it's like to perform such emotionally intense songs in front of an audience ("everyone there was happy to be there, and we all felt it onstage").
