Wovenhand at Knitting Factory (more by Greg Cristman)
Wovenhand

Though tickets for both Swans/Sir Richard Bishop shows are still available, the second night got a little more attractive with the addition of a third act - David Eugene Edwards, aka Wovenhand has been added to the bill! Wovenhand, who will also open for Swans in Boston on 9/29, will join the already awesome show on 9/28. The 9/27 will reportedly not get any extra bands. Get your tickets for either 9/27 or 9/28, or both. All Swans dates HERE.

David Eugene Edwards is a good fit for this night.

Sixteen Horsepower was always excellent live.

Awesome! Such an intense performer. I don't know Swans at all, but I guess I will now haha.

Incredible--both wings of my musical world collide in one night. The backstage politics, however, boggle the mind.

Richard Bishop is not a god fearing man unless your thinking Hinduism maybe and David Eugene Edwards is of course.

Gira on the other hand uses religious tones in a more cryptic way.

I once shared a backstage green room with Gira during the Angels of Light era; I did not see any praying but there was a whole lot of Tuvan throat singing. The green room at the 16 HP show was a whole different story...innnnnntense.

Yes I know what you mean having talked to David Eugene Edwards quite a while ago a lot.
Afterwards he can switch it off, but theres an old time background. Not my cup of tea although I still respect him.

I saw 16HP a few times, and always at the Knitting Factory when it was in Tribeca. Around 96-98.

Still gives me chills to think about.
