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

As mentioned, Swans, who managed to play Bowery Ballroom on October 28, one of the few shows that actually happened that day in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, ended up having to postpone their Music Hall of Williamsburg show which would have happened a day later (10/29). They've just announced that the makeup date for that show will happen on February 7 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/7) at noon and all tickets purchased for the 10/29 date will also be honored. Otherwise refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Devendra Banhart was scheduled to play the original date (and he also played the Bowery Ballroom show that happened the day before), but he doesn't appear to be on the bill for the new one. He did, however, just announce that he'll release the followup to 2009's What Will We Be at some point (release date TBA) on his new label home, Nonesuch. The album's called Mala and it was produced by Devendra himself and his bandmate Noah Georgeson.

A live video of "Apostate" from The Seer live DVD and a list of all Swans dates are below.

Will this be their Swan Song?

What about those who were stuck in Brooklyn when they did play that show in Manhattan the night before, but the trains were shut down?

Gira is an asshole for not postponing the Bowery Ballroom gig when he knew full well that most people had no way of getting there.

They said they'd do a makeup of the Bowery show too

I will be at MHOW and request not to be in the same room as these pussies whining about the Bowery show. If Swans are bothering to accommodate their complaining, I hope they do it at a different show.

yeah, he knew full well that assholes like you would likely be at that show, but was really excited you could not get to it... jesus... put your head back in your ass.

Did they jack up the prices?!

US $32.00 Ticket + US $4.80 Fees =
US $36.80

I love how people whine about not being able to get to Manhattan because of the subways being shuttered. Have you ever heard of a taxi/car service/walk/ride you bicycle?

Aimee Mann gave up on her Bowery show..no rescheduling oh well

^^ you're a fucking idiot. how about those folks that don't live in manhattan? do you know how much it would cost to use a car service from long island/jersey/connecticut, and christ, even queens and some parts of brooklyn? does it even have to be mentioned that walking/riding "you" bicycle isn't an option. go fuck yourself. the fact is that gira is a huge piece of shit for not postponing that show and the people complaining about it have every right to do so. the tickets that i still have sitting in my room SHOULD be honored for this make up date.

"the tickets that i still have sitting in my room SHOULD be honored for this make up date."

...or they SHOULD be used to wipe the tears and sweat from your frowning mug. Calm down little man, it's only music.

Gira rules DAWG

12:59-

The only thing that should be honored is that fact that you're a dumb cunt. Now go take some aspirin so your pussy stops hurting.

2012 shall be forever remembered as the year everyone loved Grimes, and everyone pretended to love Swans.

Who cares about Swans

If the setlist is any different I'll totally go to this for another round of Swans. Doubtful, though.

Worst storm in NYC history. Yeah, gonna pedal on over to the Bowery. WTF?

Posted by Anonymous | December 3, 2012 11:42 PM

The storm didn't hit until Monday, genius.

7:11. Asshole, the buses and trains were shut down on Monday. If you didnt live nearby or had the scratch for a taxi back and forth, you were fucked, like I was. That being said, I'll still go see this show, having seen this iteration twice and being completely blown away.

Posted by Andrew | December 4, 2012 11:35 AM

Swans should cancel every show that someone can't get to, because it is THEIR responsibility to make sure you can get to the show. If you had made it to the Bowery show but were delayed and missed 3 songs, you should have also gotten a pro-rated refund.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 12:00 PM

If you can't afford a taxi, you shouldn't be spending $ on concerts. Think about it.

shows sucks anyways don't waste your time unless you like being bored out of your gourd.
