live [and quick] review: Swans at Paradise Thursday

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Noise explosion. Arty noise. Old guys playing with intensity and passion. Not much audience interaction but it’s more of a Zen thing for this band. Can’t walk away, can’t take your eyes off. A truly unique sonic experience. Two percussionists. Unusual instruments and a strange crowd. 75% geeky guys in the crowd. Really geeky. World of Warcraft geeky. Bouncer said: “It’s like a David Lynch film.”
