I'm really milking your mother right now.

Milking nyc? they're from here you dumbass!!Wish they played a half dozen shows here!!

"They are really milking nyc now."

Try Sonic Youth. THAT'S milking it. Though, I do notice a pattern developing now where they'll play here every early fall around late September/early October though. 3 years straight.

"bring the ungodly volumes..."

I wish people would stop saying that the nowadays Swans shows are THAT loud. They are not. They're nowhere near the epic earth-shattering LOUDness that they were in the heat of the 80s. Granted, they're still loud and intense in comparison to most other shows, but in comparison to the big 80s era, no fucking way.

My Bloody Valentine was louder than Swans when I saw them both times.

No, they are that loud, you've just gone deaf, gramps.

1108 how old are you?

11:18 You either have sensitive ears or you are not used to hearing loud shows in general

They weren't that loud at the Masonic temple show and ATP. Ive been to louder shows at abc no rio

"4 X Face."

Not even a chance of that ever happening

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2012 12:04 PM

12:04 You are an idiot. It will at least be 2 X Face, I can let you know that for sure. Do you live in NY? Do you go to shows at the Bowery?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2012 12:12 PM

^ Last time I saw the Swans at Bowery, they weren't even 2 x Face. AND I was prepared to deal with that. But, it didn't happen.

11:03..... How exactly are Sonic Youth milking NYC? By playing a few area shows when they release a new record? That's called touring. By playing an outdoor show every summer on their home turf since the early 90's? That's called tradition.

Besides, you can relax. For your sake, I don't think there'll be much "milking" going on anymore.

1103 Sonic Youth will always be better than any crap you listen to aka Grimes!

1:04: Perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit or maybe I overstated it. I had just always thought for a band with a supposed mystique and sort of an anti-social "don't care" air about them, they seem awfully accessible in that sense. I don't really mean it as a complaint though, and perhaps "milking" was not the right term. You're right, I can relax lol.

Adding to what 12:14 said. For all their recent shows, none have been hard to get tickets to. At most you would pay is face value and I know a few, including myself, who got for less than face as there were many tickets available

So it is you, 12:12, you amateur scalping troll who is the idiot here. Eat shit you know nothing moron.

Swans on the last tour were great, and I was happy they pulled out some of their brutal mid-80s stuff. And they were loud. But not 80s loud. Yes I'm old, but their 80s volume was nausea-inducing and chest-caving...literally. I saw two shows off the top of my head in the last year that were louder than Swans in Oct. 2010.

And keep in mind this is music and not sports. Yes they were louder in the 80s, but who gives a shit? They're still loud, and it still suits the music. And Gira has always been gracious to his followers and supporters of his music.
