Bleeding Rainbow at Death by Audio in 2012 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Swearin' have been gracing NYC with quite a few appearances lately. Having last played here over the weekend for a Northside show at Glasslands, the band have already announced they'll return on July 26 at Death by Audio for a show with local regulars Shellshag and past Shellshag tourmates Black Rainbow. Swearin' have a few other dates that we're aware of, all of which are listed below.
Shellshag, for whom DbA is practically their second home, also have another show there on July 11, this time opening for Philly shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow (not to be confused with Black Rainbow). Also on that bill are Street Eaters and Lilith Velkor. It's Bleeding Rainbow's only date we know of at the moment.
Bleeding Rainbow drummer Ashley Arnwine also has another band, Pink Wash, who are touring and hitting Death by Audio on June 29 with Clean Girls and Baked Goods. Ashley is joined in Pink Wash by Joey Doubek of the now-defunct Hume, and together they make scrappy noise punk that actually gets a little proggy too. They recently put out an EP, Your Cure Your Soil, digitally, and it will come out on cassette on Priests' Sister Polygon Records in July. You can download it for $4 at bandcamp and stream it, with their list of tour dates, below.
