Giveaway (Part 2): Swans at South Side Music Hall

15 Feb

When they ended their 15-year run (with a long list of lineup changes) in 1997, influential New York post-punkers Swans left behind a broken-hearted fan base.

But last year, founder Michael Gira resurrected the group and they released My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky in September. And their sound is just as loud and intense as it was in their early years (or, as Gira calls it, simultaneously “soul-uplifting and body-crushing”).

Dallas fans will have a chance to catch the group live when they play South Side Music Hall this Saturday. And one of our readers (and a guest) will get to see them for free. If you want a shot, send an email with “Swans” as the subject and your name in the body to giveaways@daybowbow.net by 11:59 p.m.

Swans will play South Side Music Hall on Saturday, February 19 with openers Wooden Hand. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show.
