Listen To Sharon Van Etten’s Gorgeous Tribute To Tig Notario

Listen To Sharon Van Etten's Gorgeous Tribute To Tig Notario

After opening Outfest last week, Kristina Goolsby and Ashley York’s lovely doc “Tig” will be heading to Netflix this Friday, July 17th, and it’s well worth queuing up.

The film follows comedian Tig Notaro, who had (to put it lightly) a rough go at it a few years back: There was a near-fatal infection, the sudden death of her mother, a breakup, and a breast-cancer diagnosis all in one four month blow. The film is about how Notaro fought through the difficulties and brought her story to her standup, and it’s equal parts hilarious and beautiful. 

The film features Sharon Van Etten’s new song “Words” during its credits, and its a fitting tribute to Notaro and our early favorite to complain about not getting a Best Original Song Oscar nomination.  You can listen to exclusively at Vulture, and check out “Tig” on Netflix Friday.
