I experienced the current incarnation of ‘SWANS’ two nights ago here in Atlanta. First of all, it felt utterly bizarre to be in the audience instead of on stage. Second, tears rolled down my face during the first song as I recognized the ‘vocabulary’ of the music and understood in my very core that I belonged with it instead of witnessing it. The show is transcendent and incredible. Michael Gira is a shaman and his performance is world class. This show truly belongs in Carnegie Hall.
