Swans at Bowery Ballroom in October (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)

As mentioned, Swans will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 7 as a makeup date for their October 29 show, which was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. When we first mentioned the show, it was unclear if Devendra Banhart, who was set to open the 10/29 show, was still on the bill but it has since been confirmed that Devendra will in fact be there. Tickets for that show are still available and any tickets purchased for 10/29 will be honored as well. If you had a ticket to their 10/28 Bowery Ballroom show, which wasn't cancelled, but couldn't make it because of Hurricane Sandy, Michael Gira is inviting you to send the band a facebook page and they'll help you out.

Swans have also added a second date happening at the same venue one day earlier (2/6). No opener is listed for this show at the moment. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (12/19) at noon.

A list of all dates and a stream of "The Seer," the massive title track to the even more massive album of the same name, below...

I can't believe they're giving in to the whining babies that missed the 10/28 show. I hope he sends them all fake tickets that aren't honored at the door.

They need to turn up their sound live when I saw them it was like I was seeing Tony Bennett. Good show but too quiet.

11:56: Hopefully getting hit by a 2x4 during the hurricane wound up being the least of your problems.

Anyone who says that anyone who didn't make it to the 10/28 show is a whining baby is a flaming fucking asshole. Good for the band to reach out and compensate.

This would so cool if they were not playing for monopoly presents.

Would've preferred another date at Bowery Ballroom.

Haha the pussies are still complaining! (i.e: 12:47)

Can those who were whining and complaining about missing the Bowery show over and over show up in special t-shirts so everyone knows who to punch in the nuts?

12:59 would have been the first to complain if it happened to him!

12:59 - I'm with you. Fucking whining baby pussies need to wear shirts to the show that say "fucking whining baby pussy". I'll wear "12:32" and you wear "12:59". We'll take of of it.

One time I was going to a Yankee game and it started to rain. The game didn't rain out, but I didn't make it there. The Yankees should give me my money back, even though they still played that game. Damn Yankees.

Go figure that the people here bitching about the "whiny babies" sound like the ones more in need of a diaper.
