Swans @ Bowery Ballroom – 5/18/14
Swans

The almighty Swans brought their current tour to their hometown of NYC last night (5/18) for a stop at Bowery Ballroom, their first of two sold out shows here. The shows are in support of their massive, intense new album To Be Kind, and much like how Swans played a lot of that album on The Seer tour, Michael Gira & co. are already unleashing new songs on this one, “Frankie M” and “Don’t Go.” Opening the show was Norwegian art pop musician Jenny Hval, whose music is much quieter than Swans but was still a great fit (and the crowd treated her with respect). Pictures of the show are in this post.

Swans and Jenny do it again at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (5/19), which is sold out.
