02 May – Poetic Punk-Rock
Led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira, Swans are a post-punk band from New York City who are currently enjoying something of a renaissance. Originally active from 1982 to 1997, they reformed in 2010 and have released three albums since. The latest two, 2012’s The Seer and 2014’s To Be Kind won Swans an unprecedented amount of critical acclaim. They will take the stage at Salon IKSV, 10.30 p.m.
