Shearwater @ @ Club DeVille (SXSW BV showase) - Mar 12, 2008
Shearwater @ SXSW

On Monday, May 5th and Thursday, May 29th, Shearwater will premiere Rook in special concerts at the beautiful Florence Gould Concert Hall at Manhattan's French Institute and The Parish in Austin, Texas. For both shows, we will be joined by a string quartet, woodwinds, trumpets, and a harpist, and will play our new album in its entirety, along with a set of older songs.

We are especially proud to announce that the New York show will begin with a rare solo performance by the legendary Michael Gira (Swans, Angels of Light), and will also feature projections by Kahn & Selesnick, the team behind Rook's cover art.

Tickets to these shows are limited. For New York (May 5), they are available from Other Music and from TicketMaster, starting Friday, April 11th at 10am.
Tickets for the Austin show are available from Front Gate.

In addition, a limited vinyl 7″ of "Rooks" b/w "The Rainbow" (a previously unreleased live Talk Talk cover -- not featured on the Rook LP/CD) will be available for purchase at both shows.

NYC show address:

Florence Gould Hall
55 East 59th Street
Between Park & Madison avenues
New York, NY 10022

Doors at 7pm. Show begins promptly at 7:30pm.
