The Swell Season...is hitting the US Shores..!

I am so excited about this..


Anyone around the DC area you should check this out:

Once In a Lifetime

Folk/rock duo The Swell Season recently wrote songs for and acted in the breakthrough indie flick Once, and have played multiple sold-out tours based on the strength of their eponymous debut album. Comprised of The Frames frontman Glen Hansard and Czech musican Markéta Irglová, the duo will play the Lincoln Theatre this November with singer/songwriter Martha Wainwright (daughter of Loudoun Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and sister to Rufus). See songs from Once performed outside of the screen on this rare evening.

THE SWELL SEASON
w/ Martha Wainwright
November 18
@ Lincoln Theatre • Washington D.C.

On Sale Friday, September 28 at 10am




I am so buying tickets to this show..

I'm going here in LA in November. I saw them last year before the movie came out and this year at the premiere of Once. They are so great!!!

I wanna go toooooo!!! Awwwww, you guys are so lucky! I have only just discovered their music and have seen 'Once' a couple of times so far, so it's kind of my new musical obsession at the moment!

Enjoy!!

I wasn't aware they were going under the name "The Swell Season" that was the name of the album but it was just labeled as Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.

good luck, I hope you get tickets to boston..

They are playing the Lincoln theatre which is a seated venue that holds about 1,100 people and the tickets were all General Admission. Interesting, I wonder how they will work that. $40 bucks isn't too bad..

Oh they're cheaper here, and listed as seated, if it's a seated venue it's probably a mistake.

no it's not a mistake... that's how ticketmaster sold them for the DC show.. There was no option but GA only when I bought them. This is a seated theatre.

Weird. Well I guess it'll be a fun mystery then? Haha.

I still can't wait for The Frames to come here, but this should be amazing as well. It'll be interesting, The Police one week, then Bruce, and then a huge change with this after that.

Well.. what can I say the show last sunday was amazing.. So MUCH energy, great guitar playing beautiful singing and hilarious story telling by Glen.. Martha Wainright is a great singer too and great songwriter as well..

It was general admission and the doors opened at 7pm we got there about 6pm but had to eat by the time we finished it was a couple minutes to 7 and I was panicking cuz I knew by then the line would be long and that there was no way we were gonna get close, I was right, the line was a block and a half at least long. I was certain we would be in the back of the theatre. So we walked in and went toward the front.. Amazingly there were 2 seats 5th row, dead center! A real good spot... that was luck..
I highly recommend seeing them if you can!

Here are some ok pics I took..

a couple of pics of Martha Wainright:




The Swell Season (Mar and Glen)

All the pictures are nice, though (eh, shame about the camera quality, but still not that bad), and I'm glad you had a good time (and yay for getting up close, too!) . Sounds like a cool show-I too had no idea they were calling themselves The Swell Season. I wouldn't mind catching this, either, unfortunately doesn't seem like they'll be coming near me .

Hope your show's a good one, powerhouse24 !

Angela
