Red Swan perform on day three of the PRF BBQ Auktoberfest 2010 at Klas in Cicero, IL on Saturday October 16th, 2010. For more info about the band, please visit http://www.myspace.com/redswan.
Red Swan is from Lansing, Michigan in every sense. They were lauded as an “essential pig-fuck band” by Spin magazine. Piercing guitar with twang on one edge and the other edge is all rusty. Giant gremlin drums. Banjo is sprinkled in, and the whole effect just scares the shit out of me. Red Swan is the spirit of rural Michigan, they are the blood-freezing legend whispered to you as a kid, this is swamp-borne jack pine savage cutthroat music. — Kate
