Swervedriver @ Music Hall

Swervedriver played Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn last night (June 12, 2008). It was their second of two NYC reunion shows. The first was one night earlier at Bowery Ballroom. Bill went to that first show

…Swervedriver came out and just killed it. Like the last ten years never happened. Jaw-droppingly, why-aren’t-you-still-a-band-and-making-records good. And maybe it’s just the decade that’s passed, but they almost seemed better than I remembered. Swervedriver’s sound hasn’t dated I don’t think — it’s the sound of vapor trails off hot desert pavement, or after-burners on a spaceship. On songs like the slow-burn “Duress” it felt like gravity lost its grip on us just a little bit. The band was clearly into it as much as the crowd. Adam Franklin is a cool dude, looking more like Geoffrey Wright having long-since shaved off his signature dreads, and didn’t say more than ten word to the crowd the whole show but he had a smile on his face every time he did….
