See Swans Live at Cat's Cradle
After years of pursuing Angels of Light and recording and producing a diverse roster of artists for his Young God label, Michael Gira has decided to reconvene his legendary group Swans. As he says: "THIS IS NOT A REUNION. It's not some dumb-ass nostalgia act. It is not repeating the past. After 5 Angels Of Light albums, I needed a way to move FORWARD, in a new direction, and it just so happens that revivifying the idea of Swans is allowing me to do that. " Openers: Little Annie and Paul Walfisch
Artists of all genres, from Nirvana and Iggy Pop to John Mayer and Trampled By Turtles, have taken this stage. If that doesn't have you amped up, don't worry, they squeeze in plenty of local artists and have become the go-to spot for album release parties in the area.
The standing-room only venue has an intimate and grungy vibe that allows you to see acts that usually take the bigger stages in a smaller setting. Grab a PBR at the bar in the back and get ready to groove. The bar is cash only, so if you're planning to imbibe come prepared—and while you're at it buy an iconic t shirt!
