The Swell Season Playing 92Y Tribeca, More US Tour Dates Coming Soon

The Swell Season

This is a huge coup for 92Y Tribeca, in case you don’t recall, the last time The Swell Season were here, they played the slightly larger Radio City Music Hall.

Mon, Sep 14, Doors 8 pm, $35

92YTribeca hosts an intimate pre-release showcase of The Swell Season’s eagerly anticipated follow-up to their soundtrack to the film Once, Strict Joy, out October 27. The Swell Season is most noted as being the inspiration behind John Carney‘s Once, a low budget Irish film that became one of the most successful independent features of 2007. The pair not only wrote the songs for the movie, but starred in it and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, which they performed live at the Oscars.

You can watch a live performance of 6 new songs from Strict Joy (performed for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series) over here. Tickets for the 92Y Tribeca show go on sale tomorrow (Sep 3).

The full set of dates for The Swell Season upcoming North American fall tour will be announced on Tuesday, September 8, 2009. Presales for most shows will take place from September 9 – September 10, 2009. General on sale for most shows will begin on Friday, September 11.
