Superchunk and the reunited Swearin's tour hit NYC this past weekend for two nights at Bowery Ballroom on Saturay (4/7) and Sunday (4/8). Superchunk varied the two shows' setlists (there were probably a lot of fans who went to both shows), with a nice dose of classics alongside songs from their terrific new album What a Time to Be Alive. Swearin's Allison Crutchfield joined Superchunk on guitar for the encore both nights, and Allison's sister, Katie (of Waxahatchee), came out to sing on "Erasure" like she did on the recorded version. Check out both of Superchunk's Bowery setlists (via Mac McCaughan's instagram) and video of "Slack Motherfucker" with Allison Crutchfield and "Erasure" with Katie, below.

After a couple weeks off, Superchunk will return to the road with fellow Merge act Rock*A*Teens and will be back in the NYC area after a European tour to play Jersey City's White Eagle Hall on June 20 (tickets). Updated tour dates are listed below.
