Michael Gira at The Stone (more by Lori Baily)
Michael Gira

We knew that it was coming, but now we have a New York City date. The much discussed Swans reunion show will take place on 10/8 with Baby Dee at Brooklyn Masonic Temple, a Haunting The Chapel/The Blackened Music Series/The Issue Project Room joint production. Tickets go on sale Monday at 10AM. The show takes place a few days after Swans play Pop Montreal, one of two festivals that Swans have announced with the second being Supersonic in the UK in October 2010. More dates TBA.

It looks like tickets go on sale Friday now, and the Brooklyn show takes place one day after a show at Bowery Ballroom.

Ive never seen a group physically move a crowd like Swans did in 1997 playing songs from Soundtracks for the blind and the Great Annihilator. The Angels of Light shows were good too with a band and Thor playing vibraphone.

God Sex God was just a surreal experinece, only Gira with new words live could capture the The Marquis de Sade dialogue priest n dying man on stage, or was it more The divine comedy?? It has been nearly 2weeks n still pondering what the he'll went down at that perforance Art yes religious experience yes decents into demon hell realms yes, n much more!!! Don't miss this gig!!!
Gira fucking awesome brilliant going hard!
praise God praise the lord !!!!
Amen !
