Soberanes Fire Benefit at Golden State Theatre • Aug. 12
“One of the thankfully-more-minor things disrupted by the Soberanes Fire was a handful of music shows in Big Sur.

Van Etten was so overcome by the moment she could barely talk, babbling words of gratitude into the mic after singing backup for Jardine on “Sloop John B.””
