Review of September 15, 2011, Swans show

Earplugs were as useful an accessory as earrings at the last South Florida Swans show at Respectable Street. The slow, heavy, and beautiful sounds of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira and the rest of Swans brought "really loud" as an idea to a reality.

At the September 15 show, the venue wasn't packed, but it certainly drew in all sorts of fans of the experimental from all over southern Florida to West Palm Beach. Not a stoner in the crowd wasn't entranced by the performance. New Times writer Matt Preira was particularly impressed by percussionist Thor, who whipped out, among other things, chimes and a clarinet onstage.

This year, Swans return to Respectable Street on October 17, and South Floridians will be reminded what beauty can lie within Swans' extreme volumes.
