Swans to stream full live show from Seattle tonight
Tonight, post-punk/art-rock titans Swans will perform live in Seattle at the Showbox. If you have tickets, you are stoked. We’re a little jealous. (Michael Gira hasn’t responded to our generous offer to have him play the Treble holiday party… someday.) But hey, if you’re not going, you can actually still watch the show through the magic of Internet! Yahoo Screen Live is presenting the live stream tonight, which will happen at 10:15 PM. (The site has a countdown to 7:15 PM, but since it’s a west coast show, we’re guessing that might be a couple hours off.)
There’s a good chance the setlist will be a couple of epic songs from new album To Be Kind, probably one from 2012’s The Seer, and then a few you’ve never heard before — that’s just how Swans do. And it’ll be epic. Watch the Swans live stream, which begins at 10:15 PM, here.
