In celebration of Swans’ 30th Anniversary, Michael Gira curates Mouth To Mouth Festival at London’s Koko on Thursday 4th of April. Performances by Grouper, Xiu Xiu, Ben Frost and Mercury Rev’s Cinematic Silent Sound Tettix Wave Experiment, will take place over the evening. With a closing slot by the mighty Swans themselves.
Says Gira, “This is the first installment in what we hope to be a yearly festival, focused on disparate music and genres. Artists are chosen based on their ability to resuscitate, set fire to the air, or to mesmerize. All of the performers chosen for this year’s festival I find personally to be compelling in this regard. The goal: joy!”
