On this site you can purchase downloads of the concerts they're playing:
http://www.playedlastnight.com/artis...e_Swell_Season

It takes a few days for shows to become available (and some may not become available at all), but hopefully many will.
$ 9.95 for MP3 and $ 12.95 for FLAC files.

I really wanted to see them live, but they were playing in Seattle the night after I saw Duran Duran in Vancouver, so it wasn't possible to go to both. I found out about them coming to the area after I had my DD tix. That's the closest they'll be coming to me for now, I think. Hopefully they'll circle around this way again in the future.

I was at Barnes and Noble the other day and had a gift card to use and much to my surprise I was walking past the music DVD section and saw a "Swell Season - Live From The Artist Den DVD.........needless to say, it became mine.
Will pop it in tonight or tomorrow

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR CURRENT U.S. GIGS, we’ll reward you with a ticket

Guys,


We would need 2 people for each of the cities below to do some street team volunteer work. The work would mainly involve handing out promotional materials before the gigs.


In exchange for your help we'll offer you plus a friend to see the show you'll be working at for free. Since most of them gigs are sold out it is a golden opportunity for those who missed out on getting tickets.


The cities we need the 2 volunteers each are:

St. Louis 06 May

Milwaukee 08 May

Louisville 12 May

Atlanta 13 May

Raleigh 15 May

Richmond 16 May

Baltimore 17 May



Please if you wish to volunteer send a mail to swellseasonvolunteers@gmail.com and put in the subject field the name of the city where you'd like to do the volunteering and in the email include your full name and your cell phone number.


PLEASE NOTE THAT CHOOSING THE VOLUNTEERS WILL HAPPEN STRICTLY ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS AND ONLY THE FIRST TWO MAILERS FOR EACH CITIES WILL BE CONTACTED SO IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED A REPLY WITH CONFIRMATION AND WITH ALL THE INFO WITHIN 24 HRS THAT MEANS THAT YOUR APPLICATION HAS NOT BEEN SUCCESFUL! Unsuccessful applications will not be responded! PLEASE ONLY THOSE APPLY WHO CAN MAKE SURE THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW UP ON THE EVENING OF THE CHOSEN GIG.

Also please only send mails to this email address re:volunteer work. Emails with other irrelevant contents will not be dealt with and will be left unreplied!


Those who applied successfully will receive a mail with all the details at least 24 hrs before the start of the shows they will be working at. (obviously the St. Louis show is an exception since it is on today so for that you'll be contacted straight away with all the details by return mail!!!!)


The final deadline for the applications is 13 May, TUESDAY 09:00 AM/GMT.

All personal details (name, cell) will be kept confidential.


Thanks for everyone who will decide to lend a helping hand and we are looking forward to have you on the team!

Just wanted to say that the show in Louisville was amazing!!!

Glen talked about how amazing Obama was (they all went to the Obama rally!) He said he didn't mean to offend any republicans but Obama was inspiring. And he noted that they didn't have a say!

What a great night!

I am bummed because I don't think there will be a recording of the Louisville concert since the other shows without recordings were due to the fact that the theaters were union-houses as is Louisville's Brown Theater!

I saw The Swell Season last night here in Atlanta and absolutely loved it. It was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. They have made me a fan.

I have been listening to the Louisville show and it is amazing. Just like I remember! The songs are amazing... The interaction with the crowd....

This is what the playedlastnight website said about the show!!

"There is something special about this show, we just can't put our finger on it. The band has a very controled and calm performance. The crowd is great, but then you hardly expect anything less from Louisville. Recording is excellent, its just a good good show. Some real nice covers as well.
"
